Cali, Colombia (Sports Network) - Sebastian Fernandez birdied the first playoff hole Sunday to win the Arturo Calle Colombian Coffee Classic.

Fernandez closed with a 70 and Jose Manuel Garrido carded a 2-under 69 in the final round. The duo finished at 9-under-par 275. Fernandez then birdied the first extra hole at Club Campestre de Cali to earn his first win on the Latinoamerica Tour.

Fernandez birdied the second early in his final round, but gave that shot back with a bogey on No. 7. After nine pars in a row, he birdied the 17th to move back to minus-9, then parred the last to get into the extra session.

Garrido had a bogey and 11 pars through 12 holes in the final round. He poured in three consecutive birdies from the 13th, however, to move to 9-under. Garrido then parred the last three to end alongside Fernandez.

Third-round leader Matias O'Curry (71) and Bruce McDonald (67) shared third place at minus-8.

Oscar Fraustro (69), Clodomiro Carranza (71) and Michael Buttacavoli (74) tied for fifth at 7-under-par 277.
