Davis Love III's long victory drought is over. Tiger Woods will have to wait a while to get another chance.
Love won the Wyndham Championship on Sunday to become the third-oldest winner in PGA Tour history, while Woods' season came to an abrupt end.
The 51-year-old Love closed with a six-under-par 64 for a one-stroke victory over Jason Gore.
"Any victory now is going to be really sweet when you're over 50," Love said.
The dominant storyline all week at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, N.C., was the presence of Woods, who needed a victory to earn a spot in the FedEx Cup playoffs opener next week.
He was poised to challenge Sunday, starting just two strokes off the lead. But he only had one birdie during his first 10 holes, dropping way off the pace with a triple bogey on the par-four 11th. Woods shot a 70, finished four strokes back and ended at No. 178 in the standings, well outside the cut-off of 125.
"I gave myself a chance, and I had all the opportunity in the world today to do it," Woods said. "I didn't get it done."
Now comes a break before his next tournament, the Frys.com Open in October in Northern California. It's the first event of the tour's 2015-16 season. "This is my off-season right now," Woods said.
Love — who started at No. 186 — played himself into the Barclays by earning 500 FedEx Cup points and $972,000 in prize money.
At 51 years, 4 months, 10 days, Love trails only Sam Snead and Art Wall on the tour's age list. Snead won the last of his eight Greensboro titles at Sedgefield in 1965 at 52 years, 10 months, 8 days, and Wall took the 1975 Greater Milwaukee Open at 51 years, 7 months, 10 days.
Love finished at 17-under 263. Gore, the third-round leader, shot a 69. Scott Brown (68), Charl Schwartzel (66) and Paul Casey (67) were two strokes behind Love, who won for the first time since the 2008 Children's Miracle Network Classic in Florida.
Southern Methodist senior Bryson DeChambeau won the U.S. Amateur at Olympia Fields, Ill., to become the fifth player to win the tournament and NCAA individual title in the same year.
DeChambeau, from Clovis, Calif., beat Virginia junior Derek Bard of New Hartford, New York, 7 and 6 in the 36-hole final at Olympia Fields.
Jack Nicklaus (1961), Phil Mickelson (1990), Tiger Woods (1996) and Ryan Moore (2004) are the only other players to sweep the NCAA and Amateur titles in a season.
DeChambeau had a 2-up lead after the morning round, and won seven holes in a nine-hole stretch to go 8 up with eight holes to play.
Ko wins again
Lydia Ko won the Canadian Pacific Women's Open for the third time and first as a professional, beating Stacy Lewis with a par on the first hole of a playoff.
The 18-year-old Ko finished with an even-par 72 to match Lewis at 12-under 276 at Vancouver Golf Club. Lewis, also a playoff loser this year in the ANA Inspiration, had a 67.
Ko won in 2012 at Vancouver Golf Club at 15 years, 4 months to become the LPGA Tour's youngest winner and fifth amateur champion. The New Zealander successfully defended her title in 2013, also as an amateur, in Edmonton, Canada. She has three victories this year to push her career total to eight.
Billy Andrade won the Boeing Classic for his second Champions Tour victory and first in an individual event, overcoming trouble early in the final round for a one-stroke victory in Snoqualmie, Wash.
Andrade closed with a one-over 73 to finish at nine-under 207 at TPC Snoqualmie Ridge. He opened with rounds of 69 and 65 to take a three-stroke lead into the final round.
The 51-year-old Andrade teamed with Joe Duran to win the Legends of Golf in April for his first Champions Tour title. Andrade won four times on the PGA Tour.
