Andrew Landry held off Trey Mullinax in a battle of Americans seeking their first US PGA Tour title on Sunday (Monday in Manila) to win the Texas Open by two strokes.

According to the BBC, this is the fourth attack on a voting center since registration began at the beginning of the month. At least 57 people are said to have been killed, including children, and more than a hundred others have been injured.

Mullinax settled for a share of second with countryman Sean O'Hair on 273 with American Jimmy Walker fourth on 274 and two-time major victor Zach Johnson fifth, another stroke adrift.

"I just completely misread it", Landry said. "He circled four birdies at holes 2 (from 17'1"), 5, 14 and 17, cancelled by bogeys at 6 and 8, and a 1-putt double bogey-6 at 9. Looking to put some pressure on Landry, Mullinax chunked his pitch on the short 17th hole into a greenside bunker, leading to a bogey on one of the easiest holes on the course. Zack Johnson, the second- and third-round co-leader, never got on track in the final round and struggled to an even-par round, finishing fifth at 13 under.

Landry won in his 32nd PGA Tour start.

Jimmy Walker, the 2016 Valero Texas Open victor and a local favorite, shot 5 under on Sunday and finished alone in fourth at 14 under.

"I didn't hit that great a wedge shot", Landry said of his approach.

"This is an unbelievable feeling, to be competing with the best players in the world and seeing my name on the leaderboard", Niemann said. "Just try to keep it up and hope to play well for the next weeks". The 30-year-old Texan only earned his tour card last year on the Web.com Tour. He is slated to tee it up again next week with Talor Gooch in the Zurich Classic team event.
