NAPA, Calif. (AP) Bae Sang-moon of South Korea built a big lead and was steady enough down the stretch to win the Frys.com Open in the first PGA Tour event of the new season.

Bae closed with a 1-over 73 on Sunday, the first player since Ben Crane at the St. Jude Classic to win with a final round over par.

He won by two shots over Steven Bowditch, who closed with a 67 on a hot day in Napa Valley.

Bae began the final round with a four-shot lead at Silverado, and he stretched it to six shots before limping to the finish line. He made three bogeys on the back nine and twice had to get up-and-down to save par.

But no one got within two shots of him.
