BOGOTA, Colombia -- Bhavik Patel fired an even-par 71 on Sunday to finish in sixth place (10-under) at the Colombia Championship at Country Club de Bogota.
Web.com Tour rookie Patrick Cantlay fired a 5-under 66 and pulled away from fellow third-round co-leader Jim Renner to win by four strokes at 18-under.
Patel, a Bakersfield High graduate, shot 68, 66 and 69 in the first three rounds and was in fourth place entering the final round. He shot 3-over on the front nine Sunday, including a double-bogey 6 on the par-4 fourth hole, before recovering to shoot 3-under on the back.
Patel, who played college golf at Fresno State and is a rookie on the Web.com Tour, missed the cut at last week's Panama Claro Championship.
