Montevideo, Uruguay (Sports Network) - Jose de Jesus Rodriguez birdied the second playoff hole on Sunday to win the Roberto de Vicenzo Invitational Copa NEC.

Rodriguez closed with a 4-under 68 to end at 17-under-par 271. He was joined there by third-round leader Timothy O'Neal (72) and Sebastian Saavedra (69).

The trio returned to the 18th hole at Club de Golf Uruguay for the first extra hole, and they all made par.
