Stenson wins with course record

Justin Thomas hits from the bunker during the final round of the PGA Championship in August 2017. The Fed Ex Cup isn't the only trophy at stake over the next five weeks

"I didn't hear any roars on 18 so I thought I had a two-shot cushion", Stenson told CBS Sports' Frank Nobilo of playing the final hole on Sunday.

Schniederjans also shot 64 to finish in second place on 21-under, the 24-year-old keeping up the pressure on Stenson with three birdies in his final four holes.

Na finished in a tie for fourth with Ryan Armour and Rory Sabbatini but was a full five strokes behind Stenson.

Showing why he is the highest-ranked player in the tournament, Sweden's Stenson finished the way he started his round, with string of four birdies over six holes.

Just as important as the birdies was the fact he didn't tally a single bogey on the back nine after posting two during a stretch of inconsistent play on the front. After a par, he birdied the next three holes to get to five-under for the day. Injuries hindered him early in the season, but Stenson didn't quite have the same magic this summer that he displayed past year. They added up to a tournament record - and his first victory of the year. The solo second is the best finish of his career, and fifth inside the top 10. Webb Simpson was 18 under after a 67.

Armour and Simpson are at 13-under 127 halfway through the PGA Tour's final event of the regular season. "Sometimes it's just a coincidence why you decide to go to a tournament and make a change in your schedule, and this time it certainly worked out for a lot of good". "And for more guys on tour, it's not every week that you have a chance to win".

This means they are very capable of outscoring any team that tries to attack them but at the very time very miserly in defense. Do I think he can play successfully for me? Conte added: "No-one put a gun to my head and said, "You win or you go away".

Na had six birdies and a bogey in his round of 65, while Schniederjans recovered from a bogey on the third with six birdies, only to drop another shot on the 16th to join the chasing pack.

"It took me by surprise a little bit", Ogilvy said of the emotion. "I like the position I'm in".

Texan Johnson Wagner is a further shot back on -14 after carding a five-under-par 65 whilst another United States trio of Richy Werenski, Harold Varner III and Davis Love III are on -13.

Davis Love III " the 53-year-old player who has won this tournament three times, most recently in 2015 " matched Martin Flores and Rick Lamb with a 64.

Love, already the third oldest victor after his success here two years ago, surged into contention with an outward nine of four-under 31, but he stalled on in the inward half. "I feel like I'm starting to hit it better". "You got to think your way around the course. I miss-hit the shots and I went for a big 7-iron (at No. 7) and didn't catch it by any means and paid the price for it", Stenson said.
