Rory Sabbatini managed an even-par 70 on Sunday to hold off Y.E. Yang and win The Honda Classic.

Sabbatini, who won for the sixth time on the PGA Tour, finished at nine-under- par 271.

Yang carded a four-under 66 to take second at minus-eight.

Jerry Kelly closed with a 67 to end alone in third at seven-under-par 273. Ricky Barnes (67) took fourth at minus-four on the Champion Course at PGA National.

Sabbatini led by five at the start of the round, but his lead was down to one through 15 holes. He birdied the 16th to regain a two-stroke cushion. Yang birdied the last to finish one back.
