KUALA LUMPUR – Ben Crane won his fourth PGA Tour title on Sunday when he birdied the last to win the $6 million co-sanctioned Asia Pacific Classic in Malaysia.

Overnight leader Crane struck a final round two-under-par 69 for an 18-under, 266, total as he beat England`s Brian Davis by one-shot at the Mines Resort and Golf Club in the first PGA Tour event in South east Asia.

Davis produced a storming birdie-eagle-birdie finish as he closed with a final round of 66 to tie Crane before the American calmly rolled in an eight footer on the final green for victory.
Scot Martin Laird (66) and England`s Luke Donald (67) shared third place while three-times major winner Ernie Els of South Africa finished tied fifth with a final round 66.
