HOUSTON — Felicidades, Carlos Ortiz! With your victory in the Vivint Houston Open, you became the first player from Mexico to win on the PGA Tour in 42 years!
Ortiz held off Dustin Johnson and Hideki Matsuyama by closing with a 5-under 65.
He finished strongly. Only needing two putts for the win, the 29-year-old holed a 20-foot birdie putt for a two-shot victory.
Ortiz held back tears as he waited for his playing partners to putt. The victory sends him to the 2021 Masters next April.
“It feels awesome,” said Ortiz, who grew up in Guadalajara and played at North Texas with Sebastian Munoz of Colombia, the most recent Latin American winner on TOUR. “This is like my second home. There was a bunch of people cheering for me, Latinos and Texans. I’m thankful for all of them.”
