Bryson DeChambeau, the golf scientist, has won the John Deere Classic in Illinois and with it a place in this week's The Open.
The 23-year-old, a former US amateur champion, shot a 65 to finish at 18–under-par to win his first PGA Tour tournament in his professional 40th start.
Patrick Rodgers had led by two strokes after the third round, but bogeyed the par–five 17th to finish on 17 under, one shot behind clubhouse leader Bryson.
DeChambeau said on his victory: "I don't even know what it means right now, I've been working so hard in my whole life to do this.
"Finally it's happened, it's incredible."
