The American golfer Nick Watney has clinched his second PGA Tour title, overhauling countryman John Rollins to win the Buick Invitational in San Diego by one shot.

Watney was five strokes behind the pacesetting Rollins overnight.

He birdied three of the last six holes on the South Course at Torrey Pines to seal victory with a four-under-par 68.

Rollins was still three ahead with five holes to play but had to settle for second place after closing with a 74.
