RIO GRANDE, Puerto Rico — Scott Brown went from a one-shot deficit to a one-shot victory Sunday in the Puerto Rico Open when he made a 4-foot birdie putt on the par-5 18th hole to beat Fabian Gomez for his first PGA Tour title.

Brown closed with a 2-under 70, his final birdie set up with a 3-iron that he kept low to avoid palm trees and leave himself a 30-yard pitch short of the green.

Gomez’s second shot left him in the bunker, and he blasted that over the green and into another bunker. He missed a 15-foot par putt for a 71, and then watched as Brown rapped in the winning putt.
