Stephen Ames finally crossed the winning line on the PGA Tour after a series of near-misses when he won the Cialis Western Open at Cog Hill by two shots.
The Trinidadian, now residing in Calgary, Canada, had amassed over $1.8m in prize money in 2004 prior to this week after clocking up eight top-10 finishes, including seventh in the US Open.
Ames shared the overnight lead with Australia Mark Hensby but immediately slipped back with a bogey at the second as he went out in one-over par.
However, few players were able to make a move on the lead in windy conditions, although a 67 posted by Britain's Luke Donald appeared to set a testing seven under par total.

US Open champion Retief Goosen heads a quality cast for this week's European Open played for the first time over the K Club's Smurfit course.
The big-hitting South African will be favoured by the extremely tough terrain which covers more than 7,300 yards, with two 600-yard par fives on the front nine, and no shortage of water hazards.
However, he claims to be still feeling the effects of his nervy victory at Shinnecock Hills two weeks ago, and is not optimistic about his chances of winning on his return to the European Tour.

Players champion Adam Scott held his nerve - and held off the charging Charles Howell III - to win the Booz Allen Classic by four shots in Maryland after a closing round 68. The Australian led by six going into the final round, but the lead was reduced to two on the back nine as Howell rolled in five straight birdies between 11 and 15. But that was as close as the 25-year-old from Augusta got. Scott, 23, put his tee shot at the par-five 13th into the crowd, but recovered to make a par and then holed from eight feet and six feet at 14 and 15 for back-to-back birdies. Moments later Scott went four shots clear. Almost simultaneously as the Australian holed an eight-footer for par at 16, Howell missed a par putt of similar distance at the short 17th. A superb birdie at the 17th sealed Scott's third career PGA Tour victory - all within the last nine months - and he could afford to make a bogey five at the last to claim his seventh title worldwide.
