What's In The Winner's Golf Bag: Bryson DeChambeau at The 2017 John Deere Classic - Great Golf Blog

SILVIS, Ill. (AP) — Third-round leader Patrick Rodgers knew that it would take a ton of birdies Sunday to win the John Deere Classic.

Bryson DeChambeau took that advice to heart.

DeChambeau overcame a four-stroke deficit to beat Rodgers by a stroke for his first PGA Tour title — and a spot next week in the British Open.

The 23-year-old DeChambeau birdied four of the final six holes at TPC Deere Run for a 6-under 65 and an 18-under 266 total. In 2015, the unconventional former SMU star became the fifth player to win the NCAA individual title and U.S. Amateur in the same year.

Kevin Chappell made an 8-foot putt on the final hole to win the Valero Texas Open by one stroke on Sunday. Chappell shot a 4-under-par 68 to finish at 12 under for the tournament, edging Brooks Koepka at TPC San Antonio to earn his first PGA Tour victory in his 180th career start. 

Second-round co-leader Tony Finau was in a position to tie Koepka when he birdied four of five holes on the back nine, but his par-bogey finish left him to settle for a final-round 69 and a third-place tie with Kevin Tway at 9 under.
