Golf-Chappell finally wins on PGA Tour in 180th career start

April 23 (Reuters) - Kevin Chappell birdied the final hole on Sunday for his first victory on the PGA Tour, by one stroke over fellow American Brooks Koepka at the Texas Open.

Chappell sank an eight-foot putt at the par-five 18th for his breakthrough triumph in his 180th start on tour, and six previous runner-up finishes.

He carded a closing 68 to finish on 12-under-par 276, while Koepka charged home with a 65 for second place on 11-under at TPC San Antonio. (Reporting by Andrew Both in Cary, North Carolina; Editing by Clare Fallon)
