JHONNY VEGAS won the Bob Hope Classic in sudden death on Sunday.

Rookie Jhonattan Vegas (26), a graduate from the Nationwide Tour, became the first Venezuelan-born winner on the PGA Tour when he got up and down brilliantly for par after dunking his tee shot in the water on the second tie hole against Americans Bill Haas and Gary Woodland.
