Graeme McDowell secured his first win since 2015 with a one-stroke victory at the Corales Puntacana Resort and Club Championship.

The Northern Irishman returned to winning ways after shooting a three-under 69 in Sunday's final round.

McDowell's most recent victory came at the Mayakoba Golf Classic in November 2015, so his win in the Dominican Republic ended a tough streak for the 2010 U.S. Open champion.

He finished at 18 under, one shot ahead of Canadian Mackenzie Hughes and American Chris Stroud.

Stroud was in a good position before his bogey-bogey finish, while McDowell birdied the par-three 17th.

Hughes carded back-to-back 66s over the weekend, his final round including seven birdies and one bogey.
