WINNIPEG -- American Carlos Sainz Jr. birdied four of his final six holes Sunday to finish with a 68 to win The Players Cup for his first PGA Tour Canada victory.

Sainz Jr. edged American Nathan Tyler by a stroke, and finish at 17-under for the week.

"That back side was pretty incredible. Four out of the last six -- what can I say? The putts just dropped"" said Sainz Jr. "This win was definitely attributed to good putting."

Sainz Jr. trailed by two shots with six holes to go, but following a double bogey by Tyler at the par-4 11th, birdied three straight holes starting on 13, and added another on the 17th.

Tyler birdied the 17th to get within a stroke, but was unable to hole a birdie putt of 50 feet at the last hole to force a playoff.

Regina's Kent Eger and Mackenzie Hughes of Dundas, Ont., finished in a tie for third at 14.
