Green began the final round at the Oceanico Victoria Club seven shots adrift of overnight leader Pablo Martin of Spain, but the left-hander from Australia took a clubhouse lead of 18-under 270 and never was caught.
It was Green's third victory on the European Tour, but his first since the 2007 BA-CA Open in Austria.
Martin finished in a three-way tie for sixth at 15 under after a 75.
