Wiesberger won the Ballantine's Championship in April.
"It's fantastic," Wiesberger said. "My first win in Korea was great. But this victory in front of my home crowd can only be topped by winning a major."
Overnight leader Thorbjorn Olesen dropped to fifth place after the Dane shot 74 with three bogeys on the back nine.
Wiesberger had four birdies in five holes around the turn. His tee shot at the 17th hit a tree and bounced to leave him in a good position to get onto the green. At the 18th, he made a 50-foot putt on the final hole.
He is the second Austrian winner of the event after Markus Brier in 2006.
