    America’s Jim Herman claimed a third PGA Tour title on Sunday evening when he won the Wyndham Championship in North Carolina.

    Poised for an interesting final round at the Sedgefield Country Club as players prepared for one final fight in order to seal their spots in the FedEx Cup playoffs, Herman came almost out of nowhere with a final-round 63.

    He became only the second player older than 40 to win on Tour this season as he edged Billy Horschel by one stroke with a winning score of 21 under par.

    His display of seven under on Sunday was deemed good enough as Horschel could only settle for a five-under-par 65 to conclude with.

    Overnight leader Si Woo Kim found the going a bit tough on Sunday after being in impressive form all week. In the end, the South Korean had to settle for an even-par round of 70 – finishing in T3, alongside Webb Simpson, Kevin Kisner and Don Redman.

    South Africa’s Dylan Frittelli made one final charge up the leaderboard and concluded his week with a decent three-under-par 67, to finish the event on 13 under par and in T20.

    Countryman Christiaan Bezuidenhout also delivered a good showing for his final round on Sunday as he finished with a two-under 68 and in T37 for the week.
