LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla., Oct. 24 (UPI) -- Ryan Palmer posted a 10-under 62 Sunday for a 22-under 266 and a three-stroke victory at the Funai Classic for his first PGA Tour title.

"It's just unbelievable. What a week, what a day," said Palmer, a Tour rookie who picked up $756,000 for the win. "To play the way I did today and come out on top, what a feeling. I've never shot 62."

World No. 1 Vijay Singh, who won this event last year, closed with a 67 to finish at 19-under 269 and share second place with third-round co-leader Briny Baird, who shot 70.

Cameron Beckman and Joey Sindelar were one stroke further back at 270. Tom Lehman, who shared the third-round lead with Baird, closed with an even-par 72 to end at 17-under 271.
