Pat Perez won the third PGA title of his career with a four-shot victory in the CIMB Classic in Malaysia.

The 41-year-old American went into Sunday's final round in Kuala Lumpur boasting a four-shot lead and a three-under-par 69 was enough to secure the trophy as he finished on an impressive 24 under for the week.

When asked if the win could change things for him, Perez said: "I'm not going to change anything.

"I'm still not going to work out, will still enjoy myself, have a bad diet! I've got my group of friends and I'm not going to change anything.

"I'll work hard and take it a day at a time. I'm not getting ahead of myself, I don't look to the past, I'm just doing it."

Perez's fellow compatriot Keegan Bradley fired a 67 to finish second on 20 under for the tournament, while PGA Rookie of the Year Xander Schauffele had to settle for third place following a par round of 72.

I'll work hard and take it a day at a time. I'm not getting ahead of myself, I don't look to the past, I'm just doing it.

Englishman Paul Casey finished in a share of seventh after a final round seven-under 65 moved him to 14 under.

Meanwhile, Dustin Johnson is 7/1 to win the opening major of 2018 at the Masters, while Jordan Spieth is priced at 15/2 and Rory McIlroy is available at 9/1.
