Queenstown, New Zealand (SportsNetwork.com) - Dimitrios Papadatos closed with a 6-under 66 on Sunday and cruised to a 4-stroke victory at the New Zealand Open at The Hills Golf Course.

Papadatos finished his first tour title at 18-under-par 270.

The 22-year-old opened with a birdie on the first. He gave that shot back when he bogeyed the fifth. Papadatos atoned for that error with a birdie on the eighth.

Papadatos pulled away from the field on the back nine when he poured in five birdies in a 7-hole span.

Mark Brown had three birdies in a 5-hole stretch on the back nine to move into second place. He shot 3-under 69 to end at minus-14. David Klein carded a 5- under 67 to grab third place at 13-under-par 275.

Ashley Hall (70) and Richard Lee (71) shared fourth at 12-under 276.
