Graeme McDowell sees hopes disappear in Texas Open

Chappell birdied three of his final five holes and finished with 1-under 71 Saturday, giving him a one-stroke lead after three rounds of the Texas Open.

Kevin Chappell made an eight-foot putt on the final hole to win the Valero Texas Open by one stroke on Sunday.

Shot of the day: Chappell appeared to feel the nerves on No. 17 when he failed to convert a great birdie chance, but he steeled them on the final hole when he rolled in the winning putt from just over 8 feet with Koepka warming up nearby on the range. Before Chappell came down the 18th hole, Koepka had birdied the hole with a 3-foot putt to tie him. Chappell, a six-time PGA runner-up who was seventh at the Masters two weeks ago, put approaches at the par-5 14th and par-4 17th inches from the cup to set up birdies and sank a 12-foot birdie putt at the par-3 16th to seize the lead.

No less than seven players are a further shot back on -6 with Ryan Palmer, Carl Pettersson, Martin Laird, Kevin Tway, Bud Cauley, Tony Finau and Cameron Smith all in contention for the title. With this win, you just have to control the spin, you know.

South Africa's Branden Grace, a renowned good wind player, shot 70 to move to seven under alongside another American John Huh.

Christian McCaffrey, Leonard Fournette 'both fit' our offense — Panthers GM
McCaffrey would give the Panthers and Cam more than Fournette and it may be a little gamble, but it's worth it. That said, McCaffrey's number one attribute is his pure athleticism, which is on full display in this video.

Wiesberger, who started the third round at Genzon Golf Club with a four-shot advantage, offset two bogeys with five birdies for 15-under 201 overall. "Obviously the golf course hit me in the chin real hard early". He picked up the nearly obligatory birdie at the 17th but a bogey at the last saw him finish four shots from Chappell's lead although not without hope of contending for the title tomorrow.

"It says something about me and the growth that I've made", he was quoted as saying by pgatour.com. The 30-year-old made six birdies compared to only two bogeys in his final round.

The win is the first on the PGA Tour Champions for Singh, and it's the second for Franco.

Austrian Bernd Wiesberger beat England's Tommy Fleetwood in a playoff on Sunday to win the Shenzhen International in China.

Wiesberger's 71 featured par saves on the 12th and 17th and almost hit the pin with his approach to the last hole but was forced to settle for a par and a trip back up the 18th.
