PLAYA DEL CARMEN, Mexico (AP) -- Pat Perez won the OHL Classic at Mayakoba on Sunday in his third start since returning from shoulder surgery.
Perez closed with a 4-under 67 for a two-stroke victory over third-round leader Gary Woodland on the Greg Norman-designed El Camaleon course. Perez finished at 21-under 263.
Perez shot a 62 on Saturday to pull within a stroke of Woodland. The 40-year-old former Arizona State player birdied five of the first eight holes and had a bogey on the par-4 12th.
Perez had surgery on his shoulder in February. He returned with a tie for 33rd in Malaysia, and tied for seventh last week in Las Vegas.
Perez also won the 2009 Bob Hope Classic.
Woodland birdied the final two holes for a 70. Russell Knox was third at 18-under after a 66. Chez Reavie (67), Kevin Streelman (65) and Scott Piercy (70) were 17 under.
