AVONDALE, La. (AP) - Seung-Yul Noh overcame windy conditions and his nerves, shooting a 1-under 71 on Sunday to win the Zurich Classic by two shots for his first PGA Tour victory.

While Noh, the leader through three rounds, never fell out of first, he did make his first three bogeys of the tournament and briefly fell into a tie with Keegan Bradley, the 2011 PGA Championship winner who had the gallery behind him.

But Bradley did himself in with a bogey on the fifth hole and a triple bogey on the sixth, while Noh remained steady enough to hold off remaining challengers.

The South Korean player finished at 19-under 269.

Andrew Svoboda and Robert Streb tied for second. Svoboda had a 69, and Streb shot 70.

Bradley had a 75 to tie for eighth at 13 under.
