Bo Van Pelt of the USA has won the CIMB Asia Pacific Classic at The Mines Resort & Golf Club by six shots from his countryman Jeff Overton.

Van Pelt began the final round of the event, co-sanctioned by the PGA and Asian Tours, with a one-stroke lead over Overton. The American increased his advantage with birdies on the 3rd and 4th holes.

Overton rallied slightly with birdies on the 9th then the 11th. But Van Pelt matched the birdie at the 11th before going on to put the tournament beyond doubt with four birdies in five holes from the 13th.

In the end Overton did well to hold on to second place and only managed to do so by birdying the 15th and 17th holes. He finished one clear of Fredrik Jacobson in third place.

Cameron Tringale of the USA posted a 64 to match Van Pelt’s low round of the day. It lifted him into a share of fourth place with Colombia’s Camilo Villegas and Mark Wilson of the USA.
