LAS VEGAS (AP) Ben Martin made a 45-foot eagle putt to regain the lead and finished with a 20-foot birdie putt for a 3-under 68 and his first PGA Tour victory Sunday in the Shriners Hospital for Children Open.

Martin played his final four holes at the TPC Summerlin in 4-under par, though no shot was more important than the eagle.

Kevin Streelman ran off five birdies in a six-hole stretch to overtake Martin for the lead, and Streelman hit a wedge into 5 feet on the 18th hole. Martin, who led by as many as four shots on the back nine, hit a 6-iron over the water to the back of the green on the par-5 16th.
