Andrew Landry kept his nerve to take his first PGA Tour title at the Valero Texas Open with a four-under-par final round of 68.

Landry, who shared the overnight lead with Zach Johnson on 13 under, birdied four of the first six holes and then the 10th to reach 18-under with seven to play.

However, a bogey five at the 11th coupled with a charge which saw Trey Mullinax – who had posted a course record 62 on Saturday – reduce his lead to a single shot with three birdies in four holes around the turn, set up a potentially dramatic conclusion.
