PLAYA DEL CARMEN, Mexico (AP) Harris English won the rain-delayed OHL Classic for his second PGA Tour title, pulling away for a four-stroke victory in a 29-hole Sunday finish at Mayakoba.

English closed with a 6-under 65 after completing the third round in the morning with a 68. He moved into contention Saturday morning in the second round, matching the lowest round of his tour career with a 62.

The 24-year-old former University of Georgia star finished at 21-under 263. He won the FedEx St. Jude Classic in June for his first PGA Tour victory.

Brian Stuard shot a 67 to finish second.

Third-round leader Robert Karlsson had a 72 to drop into a tie for sixth at 15 under.

More than 4 1/2 inches of rain hit the course from Wednesday to Friday. Because of the wet conditions, players were allowed to use preferred lies.
