Branden Grace sure has a flair for the dramatic.

Back in 2016, Grace won his first PGA Tour event with a final-round 66 at the RBC Heritage. On Sunday afternoon, he did the same, holing-out for eagle on the par-4 17th and then making birdie from the sand on the par-5 18th to reach 19 under and claim the trophy at the 2021 Puerto Rico Open at Grand Reserve Country Club in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico.

Jhonattan Vegas made birdie on the par-5 18th to reach 18 under, briefly tying Grace for the lead and ultimately finishing second. Rafael Campos, who was born in San Juan and now resides in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico, fell short once again in his home country, earning a third top-10 finish at the tournament.
