South Africa's Erik van Rooyen, the 2011 Pine to Palm medalist, tied for third place at the World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship in Mexico City Sunday, Feb. 23.

Spain's Jon Rahm tied with van Rooyen at 15-under 269. Rahm shot 67 one day after setting a course record with a 10-under 61, while van Rooyen shot 70.

Patrick Reed picked up the victory with a 4-under 67 on Sunday to win by one shot over Bryson DeChambeau.

Friday was a big day for van Rooyen, who matched the then-course record with a nine-birdie, 62 on his 30th birthday. His short game was solid early, having chipped in three times over the first two rounds, twice on Thursday and once on Friday.

"When you shoot nine-under everything's going well," van Rooyen said. "What a way to kick off the 30s."

Reed matched van Rooyen's nine birdies Friday, though the former Masters champion also added a bogey.

Reed carded five birdies and one bogey on his final trip around Chapultepec Golf Club to finish at 18-under 266. The victory is the eighth of Reed's career.

The third place finish was van Rooyen’s best ever finish and best score to par in his PGA career.
