MAZATLÁN, México – Almost two years after his last victory in Acapulco, Rodolfo Cazaubón has made it back to the winner’s circle in Mexico. The 31-year old who claimed PGA TOUR Latinoamérica Player of the Year honors in 2015, went on to win the GGPB Copa Puro Sinaloa Dev Series event Sunday by defeating Colombia’s Camilo Aguado in the second hole of a sudden death playoff at Estrella del Mar Golf & Resort.
Trailing Aguado by two through 54 holes, Cazaubón birdied the final hole to card a 4-under 68 that tied Aguado for the lead at 20-under 268.
Both players made par on the first playoff hole and after Cazaubón had secured his par at the second, Aguado missed a two-footer to walk away with a bogey.
The win at Estrella del Mar was Cazaubón’s sixth as a professional. The University of North Texas alum who turned pro in 2013 has claimed four wins on PGA TOUR Latinoamérica and two wins on the Mexican Tour.
