SAN ANTONIO — Andrew Landry won the Valero Texas Open on Sunday for his first PGA Tour victory, pulling away with early birdies and holding on with par saves.

The 30-year-old Texan parred the final seven holes for a 4-under 68 and a two-stroke victory over Trey Mullinax and Sean O’Hair.

Landry played at Arkansas after starring at Port Neches-Groves High east of Houston. Many family members were at TPC San Antonio on Sunday.

“Everybody was out,” Landry said. “It was pretty special to be able to snag a victory with everybody being here to share it.”

Landry finished at 17-under 271. He earned $1,116,000 and a spot in the Masters next year.

Landry took a two-stroke lead to the par-5 18th after Mullinax chunked a flop shot and bogeyed the short par-4 17th. Landry hit a 55-foot putt over a ridge to 3 feet for par on 17 and made an 8-footer on 18 after running a 50-foot downhill birdie try past the hole.

Mullinax closed with a 69 a day after breaking the AT&T Oaks Course record with a 62. O’Hair shot 66.

LPGA: Moriya Jutanugarn won the HUGEL-JTBC LA Open in Los Angeles by two shots for her first career victory, joining sister Ariya as the second siblings to win on the LPGA Tour.

Inbee Park (68) and Jin Young Ko (70) tied for second, two strokes back.

EUROPEAN TOUR: Alexander Levy finished with a 2-under 70 to win the Trophee Hassan II in Rabat, Morocco, by one shot over Alvaro Quiros.

It was the 27-year-old Frenchman’s fifth European Tour victory. He birdied two of his first five holes to take the lead and stayed ahead the rest of the day, finishing at 8-under 280.
