GREENSBORO, N.C. – J.T. Poston kept racking up birdies and pars – but no bogeys – at the Wyndham Championship. They added up to his first PGA Tour victory and a first-time-in-decades achievement. Poston shot an 8-under 62 on Sunday for a one-stroke victory at the tour’s regular-season finale. He tied Henrik Stenson’s 2-year-old tournament record at 22-under 258 and became the first player since Lee Trevino in 1974 to win a 72-hole stroke-play event on tour without any bogeys or worse. ”I probably haven’t had that many bogey-free rounds this year,” Poston said. ”To be able to do four in a row is pretty special and finish it off with a 62 on Sunday is pretty awesome.” The native North Carolinian began his round three strokes back, took the lead for good with – what else? – a birdie on the par-5 15th hole, then finished with three straight pars to earn $1,116,000 and 500 FedEx Cup points. Webb Simpson was at 21 under after a 65. Byeong Hun An, who held or shared the lead after each of the first three rounds, three-putted the 18th for a bogey and a 67 to finish two shots back. Trying to force a playoff with a birdie, he nearly holed a 60-footer but had it run well past. ”Nothing was really working at the end,” An said. ”I just ran out of juice.” Full-field scores from the Wyndham Championship Full coverage of the Wyndham Championship Poston, a former Western Carolina golfer playing a 100-mile drive from his hometown of Hickory, became the third player in 11 years with strong local ties to win at Sedgefield Country Club. He joined 2008 winner Carl Petterson – a Swede who grew up in Greensboro – and Simpson, the 2011 champion who’s from Raleigh and played college golf at Wake Forest. ”To be able to do it here in North Carolina, with a lot of friends and family, I don’t think I could have drawn it up any better,” Poston said. Poston closed the gap with An with three birdies and an eagle on the front nine. Then came the key hole: No. 15. Poston took sole possession of the lead with a birdie on that hole after placing a bunker chip 6 feet from the flagstick. An, playing two groups behind Poston, sent his tee shot on that hole into the weeds. He took a penalty stroke, then landed his third shot left of the green, left his chip 35 feet short and dropped to 20 under after two-putting for his first bogey of the tournament. ”The bogey was definitely the killer, I think, because I knew I needed to make a birdie there,” An said. After a birdie on the next hole and a par on 17, An needed to finish with a birdie to force a playoff. He sent his tee shot into the trees and recovered by landing his second shot 60 feet from the pin. Simpson, who finished second for the second straight week, earned his seventh top-10 finish at this tournament since 2010 and climbed to No. 9 on the playoff points list, earning $550,000 in bonus money as part of the inaugural Wyndham Rewards Top 10 program. ”Honestly, it wasn’t even on the radar going into Memphis (last week),” Simpson said. ”I was too far back, I thought, unless I did something crazy. So yeah, it was on my mind this week.” Nine players started this tournament with a shot at some of that cash, but only Simpson and Paul Casey came away with some. Casey finished eighth on the points list and earned $600,000. The other annual subplot at Sedgefield focused on the players on the playoff bubble. Two players who began the tournament outside the top 125 – No. 129 Patton Kizzire and No. 134 Andrew Landry – played their way into the field for The Northern Trust next week in New Jersey. An average of 2.7 players played their way into the top 125 in this tournament’s previous dozen years as the tour’s final pre-playoff event. ”I definitely knew what I was playing for,” Kizzire said.
