GREENSBORO: Brandt Snedeker won the Wyndham Championship by three shots on Sunday after his only remaining threat C.T. Pan drove out of bounds at the final hole.

Snedeker and Taiwan’s Pan were tied until Pan’s mistake at the par-four 18th led to a double bogey and afforded Snedeker the luxury of needing only a bogey at the hole.

Snedeker instead finished in style with a birdie to complete a wire-to-wire victory.

He opened with a 59, and closed with a five-under-par 65 at Sedgefield Country Club.

Snedeker finished at 21-under 259 for his ninth PGA Tour victory.

Pan (66) tied with American Webb Simpson (62) for second on 18 under in the final regular season event before the PGA Tour’s playoffs start on Thursday.
