PLAYA DEL CARMEN, Mexico (AP) - Harris English won the rain-delayed OHL Classic for his second PGA Tour title, pulling away for a four-stroke victory in a 29-hole Sunday finish at Mayakoba.

English closed with a 6-under 65 after completing the third round in the morning with a 68. He moved into contention Saturday morning in the second round, matching the lowest round of his tour career with a 62.

''I guess I found something in my swing - a little swing key that helping me out,'' English said. ''I hit the ball really well all week. It got a little windy the first two days and I struggled a bit with my driver, but I found it down the stretch.''

The 24-year-old former University of Georgia star finished at a tournament-record 21-under 263.

''My first time at Mayakoba,'' English said. ''It's such a great tournament. Had a great time this week. Stayed down in Playa. Had some great beach time. Had some good golf course time.''

He won the FedEx St. Jude Classic in June in Tennessee for his first PGA Tour victory.

''I was a lot more comfortable out there than I was a Memphis,'' English said.

English and Rory McIlroy are the only current players under 25 with multiple PGA Tour victories.

Brian Stuard shot a 67 to finish second.

Third-round leader Robert Karlsson had a 72 to drop into a tie for sixth at 15 under.

''I've been struggling with the long shots, in general,'' the 44-year-old Swede said. ''Usually, you get found out sooner or later. ... I'm still very, very pleased.''

Jason Bohn (68), Chris Stroud (68) and Rory Sabbatini (70) tied for third at 16 under.

Justin Hicks (67), Justin Leonard (67) and Charles Howell III (69) joined Karlsson at 15 under.

More than 4 1/2 inches of rain hit the course from Wednesday to Friday. Because of the wet conditions, players were allowed to use preferred lies.
