Chilean wins Korn Ferry Tour’s Bogota title

Mito Pereira, who started the day 4 strokes back, closes with 7-under 64, capped by eagle on final hole, to win by 2

20: Length, in feet, of the eagle putt that Chile’s Mito Pereira made on the final hole to win the Korn Ferry Tour’s Country Club de Bogota Championship on Sunday in Bogota, Colombia. Pereira, who trailed by four strokes entering the final round, shot 7-under 64 for a 20-under 263 and two-stroke victory over American Ben Kohles, who closed with a 65. It was the first victory on the PGA Tour’s top developmental circuit for Pereira, 24, who played college golf at Texas Tech. “Being from Latin America helped get the crowd behind me here,” Pereira said. One week earlier, he tied for third in the Panama Championship. Pereira lost his card on what then was the Web.com Tour in 2018 and, after breaking a collarbone in a dirt-biking accident, had to return to the Latinoamerica Tour last season. Colombia’s Camilo Villegas, making his third rehab start on the developmental tour in a bid to return to the PGA Tour, tied for fourth (scores).
