Patrick Cantlay takes out the BMW Championship after an epic battle with fellow American Bryson DeChambeau. A birdie on the final hole of regulation was enough to get Cantlay into a playoff with Bryson, 4 shots clear of the nearest competitor Sungjae Im. It was the first time in PGA Tour history that two players have finished a 72 hole tournament at -27 or better.

Thankfully though, the entertainment didn’t stop there! It took a further 6 holes to separate the two. The playoff itself was filled with ups and downs, including DeChambeau having to take a penalty drop on the fourth hole just to scramble a par to halve Cantlay. The next saw both players hit their tee shots to within 6 feet of the hole on the par 3 17th. Coming back down the 18th, Cantlay was able to cosy his approach shot 17 feet from the hole. This resulted in a clutch birdie putt, leaving DeChambeau having to hole his 9-footer to extend the playoff.  His putt slide past the hole, giving Cantlay a hard-earned victory.

This win places Cantlay atop the FedEx Cup Standings heading into next weeks Tour Championship at East Lake and a two-shot head start over last weeks’ winner Tony Finau.
