Panama City, Panama (Sports Network) - Edward Loar didn't make a ton of shots Sunday. He had three bogeys and a triple-bogey, then watched as his five- stroke lead dwindled to one and, eventually, fell out of first.

But locked in a five-way tie atop of the leaderboard late in the final round of the Panama Claro Championship, he came up with the winning shot.

Loar birdied the 16th hole to break free of the pack, then parred out to secure his first Nationwide Tour victory. Prior to this tournament, he had never been in first after a round on the tour.

Despite carding a four-over 74 on Sunday, Loar finished at four-under 276, one stroke ahead of Cameron Percy (67), Ryan Armour (68), Luke List (68) and Brian Smock (69).

Justin Bolli shot a 71 to finish alone in sixth at minus-one.
