Bo Van Pelt held off fellow American Jason Dufner by shooting a 4-under 68 Sunday to win the inaugural Perth International by two shots.

Van Pelt extended his one-shot overnight lead with the help of six birdies and two bogeys to secure his first victory in a European Tour-sanctioned event. He finished at 16-under 272 at Lake Karrinyup and earned $333,330.

Dufner, a two-time winner this year on the PGA Tour, shot a 69. Spain’s Alejandro Canizares was third at 11 under after a 68.

Van Pelt’s previous victory came in the Asia-Pacific Classic in Malaysia last year, a title he is due to defend next week.
