NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. (AP)—
Nick Watney has won for the second time this year on the PGA Tour. He made big par putts early and enough birdies to pull away for a two-shot victory in the AT&T National.
Watney, who won a World Golf Championship at Doral in March, closed with a 4-under 66 on Sunday. He goes to No. 10 in the world and leads the FedEx Cup standings and PGA Tour money list for the first time.
K.J. Choi made a charge on the back nine and caught Watney with a 35-foot birdie putt on the 14th. But on the next hole, Choi made double bogey from a terrible spot in a bunker.
Rickie Fowler, who shared the lead with Watney, shot 74 and finished nine shots behind.
