The victory is DeChambeau's first on the PGA Tour and as well as a cheque for 1million United States dollars, he has also qualified for the Open Championship at Royal Birkdale.

Another player dominating the back nine was DeChambeau, who put up back-to-back birdies three different times in that nine-hole stretch, on Nos.

On Friday, though, he caught fire after a slow start, nailing a 50-foot chip-in for birdie at his 12th and a 50-foot birdie putt four holes later.

"I wanted to believe in myself again for the final two rounds and I did".

Rodgers, who teed off with a two-stroke lead, had five birdies and four bogeys as he finished runner-up. He had eagled No. 2 and birdied No. 8, but gave a stroke back with a bogey on the 503-yard par-4, a hole he also bogeyed in the third round.

The story of the day, however, was the stunning collapse by Langer.

Not bad for just 10 starts as he juggles time on PGA TOUR Champions, the PGA TOUR and his Presidents Cup duties.

Savannah's Gene Sauers shot a 6-under-par 66, to finish in a tie for ninth at 10 under par.

Hansen says winning the Best Social Media Activation award is the icing on top of the cake for a tournament that was voted as the Best PGA Tour Event in 2016. Seeking his third major win of the year, the 59-year German had a one-shot lead before dropping his tee shot in the water on No. 17.

"I thought that putt was going to get us into a playoff", Tucker admitted.

McCarron's victory at the Allianz Championship in February wasn't almost as exciting as this one, which came to fruition because Langer came apart just when it seemed he was well on his way to making history.

"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".

Catriona Matthew finished joint-44th on six-over after a closing 72 with Charley Hull tying for 21st after a last-day 73. After making the turn at even par after just one bogey and one birdie on the front nine, DeChambeau kicked it into high gear on the back. He won his first championship in a playoff on Sep. The run began in 2014 at the Fox Chapel Golf Club in Pittsburgh, continued in 2015 at the Belmont Country Club in MA and stayed alive past year at the Philadelphia Cricket Club. "I couldn't event tell you some of the other guys that are on the leaderboard", Stallings said. "It feels like it's been a long time coming, even though I'm 23". Twenty under would have done it. "But it's easier said than done".

Bubba Watson shot a 68 to finish at 9 under.
