Buenos Aires, Argentina (SportsNetwork.com) - Marcelo Rozo closed with an even-par 72 on Sunday and hung on to win the Argentina Open by two shots.

Rozo ended his first PGA Tour Latinoamerica victory at 10-under-par 278.

Jeff Gove, a three-time winner on the Web.com Tour, fired a 5-under 67 to take second place at minus-8 at Nordelta Golf Club. Emiliano Grillo and Bronson Burgoon both closed with 68s and shared third place at 7-under 281.

Rozo, the 2012 runner-up at the Dominican Republic Open, started with birdies on the first and fourth. After stumbling to a bogey on the seventh, he bounced back with a birdie on No. 8.

The Colombian wrapped bogeys at 12 and 14 around a birdie on the 13th. Rozo tripped to a bogey at the last to trim his winning margin to two.

Two-time major champion Angel Cabrera shot 3-under 69 to end alongside Ryan Blaum (70) in fifth at 6-under 282. Emilio Dominguez (71) and Rafael Echenique (73) shared seventh at minus-4.
