Henrik Stenson birdied four of the last six holes as he won the Wyndham Championship by one shot with a closing round of 64.

That took him to 22 under for the tournament, breaking the course record which had been set by fellow Swede Carl Pettersson in 2008 and matched last year by Si Woo Kim.

He finished one shot clear of Ollie Schniederjans, and four clear of Webb Simpson in third place.

It was Stenson’s first victory since the 2016 Open, and came in the final event of the PGA Tour’s regular season.

Stenson carded two bogeys alongside four birdies to make the turn in 33, and found himself in a tie with Schniederjans after a birdie on the 13th.

But he enjoyed three straight birdies from the 15th to the 17th to edge clear, hanging on as Schniederjans birdied the 17th and 18th.

“I didn’t hear any roars on the 18th, I thought I had a two-shot cushion until I came down here and saw Ollie had birdied the 17th and 18th, so he pushed me all the way to the end,” Stenson said on the PGA Tour website.

“It was a tight race and on the back nine it was anyone’s tournament. Lucky for me I managed to put my foot down and make a couple of birdies coming home.”

Stenson had begun the day with a one-shot lead over Schniederjans, Simpson and Kevin Na, but the latter two were unable to sustain the challenge.

Simpson had two bogeys in a round of 67, while Na’s 68, which included three bogeys on the back nine, dropped him into a three-way tie for fourth alongside Ryan Armour and Rory Sabbatini.
