Scott Brown won't have to worry about finding a place to play on the PGA TOUR for a while.
Brown birdied the 72nd hole on Sunday to win the Puerto Rico Open presented by seepuertorico.com for his first PGA TOUR victory.
Brown, who earns a two-year exemption on the PGA TOUR and 300 FedExCup points with his win, carded a 2-under 70 to finish at 20-under 268 for a one-shot win over Fabian Gomez (71) and 19-year-old Jordan Spieth (67) at Trump International in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico.
Former U.S. Amateur champion Peter Uihlein tied for sixth, giving him a spot in the Tampa Bay Championship presented by EverBank next week.
