PANAMA CITY, Panama (AP) — Carson Young kept mistakes off his card after opening with a bogey, closing with a two-under 68 for a one-shot victory in the Panama Championship.

Young had missed the cut in his opening two events in the Bahamas on the Korn Ferry Tour. He won for the second time as a pro, adding to a LocaliQ Series event in Florida that was put together during the pandemic in 2020 for players from the Canadian and Latin American tours.

Carl Yuan of China birdied three of his last four holes, helping him overcome a double bogey on the seventh hole. He closed with a 68 and tied for second with Jimmy Stanger (70) and Brandon Matthews (69).

The Korn Ferry Tour wraps up its international start by going to Bogota, Colombia.
