July 17, 2017


Number of Tour victories for second-year pro Bryson DeChambeau, who birdied his final two holes Sunday to win the PGA Tour’s John Deere Classic. DeChambeau, 23, finished at 18-under 266 at TPC Deere Run in Silvis, Ill., edging Tour rookie Patrick Rodgers (70) by one stroke. Wesley Bryan (64) and Rick Lamb (66) tied for third at 16-under 268. DeChambeau, who won the 2015 NCAA title while at Southern Methodist before winning that summer’s U.S. Amateur, was making his 40th Tour start. He also earned the final spot for this week’s British Open via the Open Qualifying Series.


Deficit, in strokes, that Scott McCarron erased with a final-round 6-under 66 on Sunday to win the Constellation Senior Players Championship. McCarron finished at 18-under 270 at Caves Valley Golf Club in Owings Mills, Md., to edge Bernhard Langer (73) and Brandt Jobe (72) by one stroke. It is the second victory of the Champions Tour season and first senior major championship for McCarron. Langer had won three consecutive Senior Players titles and the first two majors of this year.


Number of starts on the Tour that Brice Garnett needed for his first victory. Garnett shot a final-round 6-under 65 on Sunday for a 21-under 263 total to win the Utah Championship at Oakridge Country Club in Farmington, Utah. Abraham Ancer (63), Austin Cook (65) and Rob Oppenheim (69) tied for second at 20-under 264. Garnett moves up to 12th on the money list and assures a return to the PGA Tour, which he played during the past three seasons, when he made 39 cuts in 72 starts, with four top-10 finishes.
