BEACHWOOD, Ohio (AP) — Bryson DeChambeau won the Tour Finals-opening DAP Championship to wrap up a PGA Tour card for next season.

The 22-year-old former SMU player beat Andres Gonzales with a 5-foot par putt on the second hole of a playoff at Canterbury Golf Club. DeChambeau and Gonzales each birdied the 18th on the first extra trip down the par-4 hole, eliminating Nicholas Lindheim and Argentina’s Julian Etulain.

“It’s a big patience test for me, and I think I passed,” DeChambeau said.

DeChambeau shot a 1-over 71 in windy conditions to match Gonzales (68), Lindheim (66), and Etulain (67) at 7-under 273.
