Former US Open champion Corey Pavin clinched his first PGA Tour title in more than 10 years at the Milwaukee Open in Wisconsin on Sunday, completing a wire-to-wire victory by two shots, reports Reuters.

Boosted by an eagle-two at the eighth where he holed out with his second shot from 172 yards, the 46-year-old American fired a three-under-par 67 to finish on 20-under 260. Two strokes clear at the start of the day, Pavin made his first move with a birdie at the par-three fifth and effectively put the title beyond doubt after doubling his lead by the turn.

Although he failed to pick up another shot on the back nine and was chased hard by playing partner Jerry Kelly, he held on to claim the 15th PGA Tour title of his career.Local favourite and Wisconsin native Kelly shot a 67 to finish alone in second place with twice champion Jeff Sluman (64) a further stroke back in third.

Americans DJ Trahan and Frank Lickliter II carded matching 69s to tie for fourth at 15 under while 2003 winner Kenny Perry closed with a 65 for a share of 15th. Pavin, who had not been in the winner's circle since the 1996 Colonial tournament, paved the way for his unlikely victory with an opening 61 that included a Tour record front nine of 26.
