American golfer Ben Crane has clinched his first PGA Tour title in more than four years with a one-shot victory at the San Diego Open.

Crane overtook the third-round leader Ryuji Imada of Japan with three birdies in the first five holes, and parred the last hole to finish with a two under par 70 to go 13 under for the tournament.

It's the 33-year-old's first victory on the US circuit since the 2005 Milwaukee Championship.

American Brandt Snedeker and Australia's Mark Leishman and Michael Sim finished tied for second on 12 under.
