Davis Love III fired a closing round of 64 to take a one-shot victory at the Wyndham Championship on Sunday.
The US Ryder Cup captain recovered from an opening dropped shot to card four birdies, two eagles and just one other bogey as he posted 17-under at Sedgefield Country Club in North Carolina.
Overnight leader Jason Gore had a putt at the last to force a play-off but could not convert and his closing 69 left him one adrift of the veteran.
Charl Schwartzel, Paul Casey and Scott Brown shared third on 15-under, while multiple major winner Tiger Woods could only manage a level-par 70 on Sunday to give him a tie for 10th.
The day belonged to Love, though, as he recorded his third victory in Greensboro and in doing so earned a place in the FedEx Cup play-offs.
The 51-year-old’s triumph sees him become the third-oldest winner in PGA Tour history and afterwards he admitted even he was surprised by his success.
“Any victory now when you’re over 50 is really sweet,” he said. “It’s hard to believe.”
