Angels Cabrera shoots a 64 to win the Greenbrier Classic by two strokes over George McNeill

Angel Cabrera won the Greenbrier Classic on Sunday for his first non-major victory on the PGA Tour, closing with his second consecutive six-under-par 64 for a two-stroke victory over George McNeill at the Old White TPC in White Sulphur Springs, W.Va.

Cabrera, an Argentine whose only other PGA Tour victories came in the 2007 U.S. Open and 2009 Masters, built a three-shot lead before making things interesting with two late bogeys. He finished at 16-under 264.

McNeill shot a season-best 61 for his fourth top-10 finish this season and first since mid-March.

Webb Simpson had a 63 to finish third at 10 under.

Third-round leader Billy Hurley III bogeyed four of the first six holes to fall out of contention. He shot a 73 and finished in a seven-way tie for fourth at nine under.

Graeme McDowell overtakes Kevin Stadler to win French Open

Graeme McDowell of Northern Ireland made the best of tough conditions to retain his French Open title by firing a four-under 67 in the final round to win by a stroke at Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines.

In pouring rain, McDowell made five birdies and a bogey for the lowest round of the day to finish at five-under 279.

Overnight leader Kevin Stadler made three birdies and dropped eight shots for a 76 to share second place with Thongchai Jaidee, who shot a 72.

Stadler had a chance on the last hole to become the first American to win the tournament since Barry Jaeckel in 1972, but he missed a long birdie putt to force a playoff.

Australia's Nikki Campbell was second after a 67.
