Bryson DeChambeau drained a massive eagle putt on the way to winning the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in Las Vegas by one stroke on Sunday.

Locked in battle with defending champion Patrick Cantlay, DeChambeau’s putt from just inside 60 feet on 16 helped him to a final round of 66 and combined 21-under-par 263.

Cantlay (65) finished alone in second with Sam Ryder (62) in third a shot further back and Rickie Fowler (63) tied for fourth on 17-under.

DeChambeau, 25, will climb to number five in the world after picking up his fifth PGA Tour win.

“I was just coming out here to try to kick the rust off. I was able to play some great golf,” DeChambeau told reporters. “I didn’t putt my best but I was still able to get it done. I’m pretty proud of that.½

Cantlay hit the front with a birdie on 16 but lost it with a bogey at the next coupled with DeChambeau’s eagle.

He lamented a poor bunker shot at 17 that hurt his chances.

“When I dug my foot in (the bunker) it didn’t have a bunch of sand. Obviously, when I hit my shot there was more sand under the ball,” Cantlay said.

“It was a tricky one, I just hit a poor shot.”

Three-times major champion Jordan Spieth carded a final round 72 to finish 14 strokes behind the winner while Graemem McDowell finished with a round of 70 to tie for 41st at nine under.
