DeChambeau wins John Deere, books Open berth

CHICAGO (AFP) - 

Bryson DeChambeau drained a 14-foot birdie putt at the 72nd hole on Sunday as his storming back nine lifted him to a first US PGA Tour title at the John Deere Classic.

The 23-year-old had six birdies coming in as he rallied for the victory over a faltering Patrick Rodgers, punching his ticket to next week's British Open in the process.

DeChambeau carded a final-round 65 for an 18-under par total of 266 at TPC Deere Run in Silvis, Illinois.

He finished one stroke in front of Rodgers, who started the day with a two stroke lead but fell behind DeChambeau with a bogey at the par-five 17th and couldn't come up with a birdie at the last to force a playoff.

Rodgers signed for a 70 that put him in 267, alone in second and one shot in front of Wesley Bryan and Rick Lamb.

Bryan closed strong with a 64 and Lamp carded a 66.
