The American, 32, claimed his third PGA Tour title - and a first since 2008 - after a closing 71 proved good enough for a one-shot triumph at Quail Hollow.
Holmes underwent brain surgery in 2011 after being diagnosed with structural defects in the cerebellum and required a second operation after complications.
He then broke an ankle whilst rollerblading in March last year and had been playing on Tour with a medical exemption.
But his win on Sunday ends any worries over his future playing rights, with the Kentucky native now jumping from 242 to number 68 in the world.
Meanwhile, Felipe Aguilar produced a sensational birdie-eagle finish to snatch victory at The Championship in Singapore - his second career triumph on the European Tour.
The Chilean holed his approach at the 18th to deny Anders Hansen and David Lipsky by a single stroke and, as a result, rises 79 places to 130th in the world rankings.
