Snedeker claims first PGA victory
US rookie Brandt Snedeker
Snedeker birdied four of the last six holes to claim victory
FINAL ROUND LEADERBOARD:
(US unless stated)
-22 B Snedeker
-20 T Petrovic, J Overton, B Mayfair
-19 C Pettersson (Swe)
-18 G Kraft

US rookie Brandt Snedeker captured his first PGA title after claiming a two-stroke victory in the Wyndham Championship in North Carolina.

Snedeker, who started the day five strokes off the lead, fired a nine-under par 63 featuring 10 birdies.

He finished two strokes clear of compatriots Tim Petrovic, Jeff Overton and Billy Mayfair.

Petrovic needed a birdie at the 18th to force a play-off but missed out after making a bogey.

Snedeker's win gives him a two-year US PGA exemption and a place at next year's Masters, an event he has previously only played as an amateur.

"One of my goals was to go back as a pro," he said. "To go ahead and realise that right now, I've got goosebumps."
