Sergio Garcia took his first PGA Tour win since the 2017 Masters with one-shot win at the Sanderson Farms Championship in Mississippi.

Garcia started the day with a triple share of the lead, but needed an eagle in the par-five 14th to level with clubhouse leader Peter Malnati.

A nice approach shot on the 18th then provided a two-foot birdie putt for the win, his 11th on the PGA Tour.

"The perfect end to a great week," said Garcia.

The Spaniard added, "I got up at 18 and did what I did all week. I trusted myself."

The American Malnati took a career-best round of 63 to enter the clubhouse lead at 18-under and held that advantage two hours ahead of Garcia & # 39; s late golf.

Malnati would eventually finish second, two shots clear of fellow countryman JT Poston, with another American Keegan Bradley and Swede Henrik Norlander one shot further back in fourth place.
