Klauk finished with a 69, and Atwal shot a 74. Chris Smith (74) was fourth at 1 under, and Bill Lunde (71) followed at even par.
Sunday's scoring average was 73.677, making it the toughest single day in tournament history. The cumulative scoring average was 72.982.
"It's almost like U.S. Open conditions here," Dunlap said. "The wind blows and the golf course gets firm. You know that scoring won't be that far under par. It's the same every year. Par is always a good on this course.
"To win on this golf course is very rewarding. This essentially gives me a two-year exemption. This sets me up for the rest of the year and gets me about halfway to earning my PGA Tour card for next year."
The Mexico Open is next week at Tres Marias in Michoacan.
