Mansfield's Oliver Wilson revealed his delight after earning his best US PGA Tour finish at the WGC-CA Championship.

Wilson, 28, shot a 66 in the final round in Florida to earn a tie for fifth place with Camilo Villegas.

"It feels pretty good to be honest," admitted Wilson after his bogey-free final round at Doral.

"Saturday was one of my best rounds for a while, shooting level. I ground it out and it gave me a chance to do what I did on Sunday. It worked out well."

He added: "I'm feeling good. I'm not playing loads but I have got a few good tournaments coming up, obviously the Masters is the main one that I want to prepare for.

"But I'm looking forward to it, it is my first time there and I'm sure it will be a lot of fun."

US world number two Phil Mickelson won his second title of the year in Florida, finishing one shot ahead of Nick Watney.
