DeChambeau Proud To Win First PGA Title At JDC

Bryson De Chambeau has won the John Deere Classic and earned a spot in next week's British Open

Bryson DeChambeau, 23, sank a 14-foot birdie putt at the final hole to win the John Deere Classic.

The Open will be DeChambeau's first after losing the exemption he earned with his US Amateur victory when he turned professional after earning Low Amateur honours at the 2016 Masters. Continuing to play the aggressive style that got him to the cusp of a championship ultimately backfired a bit, especially on the par-five 17th-a hole that was asking to be birdied.

Bryson DeChambeau took that advice to heart. OK, well not too long as you now have an Open Championship date this week. "It's pretty special to win here at the John Deere".

However a birdie at the eighth was the kick-start he needed as he completed the back nine holes in six under, to finish on 18 under, one shot ahead of Rodgers.

DeChambeau played well all weekend, and he started Sunday's round with sole possession of second place at 11-under.

The 23-year-old says he's proud his first win game at TPC Deere Run. Lamb was 13 under for the final two rounds but was done in by pedestrian efforts in the first two rounds.

The other end of the spectrum were holes 2, 10 and 14.

The uncharateristic slip up from the German saw him pipped for the title at Caves Valley Golf Club in Baltimore by American Scott McCarron.

"I've been wanting to go for a long time". Twenty under would have done it.

Ireland's Seamus Power tied for 25th after signing off with a 67, while English qualifier Sam Horsfield shot a closing 71 to finish down in a share of 55th. At TPC Deere Run he's a cumulative 168-under since 2000 with a win and now seven top-10 results.

"It's just really gratifying to know the work we're doing in one of the smallest markets on the PGA tour is having such a great impact". "Just couldn't get it in there", Stricker said.

The Victorian was the highest placed Australian after finishing with rounds of 69, 69, 66 and 67 for a 13-under total.

The effort leaves Gunn sitting 21st on the money-list as he battles to secure a PGA Tour spot alongside Russell Knox and Martin Laird.

"Yeah, that's incredible, " said DeChambeau recalling early PGA Tour exposure in the Quad-Cities.

Defending champions Scotland finished fifth in the European Men's Team Championship in Austria.

England won the women's event in Portugal, beating Italy 5.5-1.5 in the final at Montado.

DeChambeau reacts to his birdie putt at the final hole.

The triumphed with a net 70.5 in an event featuring a group of 42 men and women over the back nine at this week's Open Championship venue.
