EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) - Former University of Oregon player Aaron Wise won the Syncrude Oil Country Championship on Sunday for his first Mackenzie Tour-PGA Tour Canada victory.

The NCAA individual champion in May, Wise closed with a 2-under 70 at Glendale Golf and Country Club for a one-stroke victory over Brock Mackenzie and Argentina’s Puma Dominguez.

“I battled all day long,” Wise said. “I got a couple of good breaks and a couple bad breaks. For it all to come in the way it did and for me to win, that was the goal and I’m very excited.”

Wise finished at 19-under 269 after opening with rounds of 67, 66 and 66.

Mackenzie shot a 71, and Dominguez had a 68.
