Palm Beach Gardens, FL (Sports Network) - Michael Thompson shot 1-under 69 on Sunday and picked up his first PGA Tour victory at the Honda Classic.

Thompson had three cuts and a tie for 78th in four previous starts this season, but the overnight co-leader tallied three birdies and an eagle at blustery PGA National on Sunday and closed at 9-under 271 -- good for a 2- stroke victory over the late-charging Geoff Ogilvy, who birdied two of his last three holes for a final-round 69.

Luke Guthrie shared the lead with Thompson after three rounds, but the rookie carded a 73 and finished alone in third place at 5-under.
