Max Homa (USA) lines up his putt on the 18th hole during the final round of the Wells Fargo Championship golf tournament at Quail Hollow Club.

He answered with a shot into 12 feet on the par-5 seventh for eagle, a wedge to 6 feet for birdie on the next hole and solid golf the rest of the way.

Homa took - actually seized - that chance.

Dahmen and Homa each dropped a shot over the last three holes for a 70.

Rose would, in fact, finish 3rd, one behind Dahmen while Sergio Garcia, Paul Casey, Rickie Fowler and Jason Dufner tied for 4th.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Robby Shelton won the Nashville Golf Open Benefitting the Snedeker Foundation for his first Web.com Tour victory, beating Scottie Scheffler with a birdie on the first hole of a playoff.

"I worked hard to get here and it feels good to know what this feels like, " Homa said.

Sunday's round didn't come without some stress for Homa, however.

Storms moved in sooner than expected causing two delays, each lasting a little more than an hour and making a firm Quail Hollow play slightly softer.

"(I am) over the moon, man", Homa, the 2013 American collegiate individual champion, said in a greenside interview after punching his ticket for the year's second major, the PGA Championship starting on Thursday at Bethpage in NY. I think I'm on my fourth or fifth putter this year.

But after patiently parring his first six holes, he came apart at the seams, dropping three shots in a four-hole, mid-round stretch to forget.

Graham says Mueller can testify about his conversation with Barr
Barr, who was appointed by Trump, testified on Wednesday for four hours to the Senate Judiciary Committee. I didn't know that a President could ask an attorney general to open an investigation.

He gave one of those shots back on No. 16, where he made his first and only bogey of the day. Two seasons ago, he made only two cuts in 17 tournaments, missing the 54-hole cut in one of them and finishing last at an opposite-field event in the other.

He had no trouble on the nervy 18th hole, hitting his drive straight down the middle, twirling his club confidently after his follow through. He wrapped it up with a 10-foot par putt to finish at 15-under 269. And he capped it all off with a 40-foot birdie putt on the peninsula green at the par-3 17th.

Dufner, the 2013 PGA Championship victor, closed with a double bogey to fall back after lurking within reach much of the day.

"I'm just getting to that point where I'm kind of settled with everything", the 42-year-old Dufner said. "I mean, I'm good enough to win out here".

Justin Rose carded a 68 and was third on 11 under, while playing partner Rory McIlroy, two back overnight, was eight adrift in a tie for eighth after a 73.

McIlroy had only one birdie through nine holes as he missed several putting opportunities, but Seamus Power claimed a couple of birdies to move to -8 and keep himself in touch with the leaders. In any case, McIlroy went intruder twofold intruder on 9 and 10 and didn't make his first birdie until the thirteenth. All of a sudden, McIlroy was seven strokes back and out of contention.

After the 62-minute postponement, Homa sank his short standard putt on 14 and his lead was three with four to play.

Homa was able to stay above the fray, even while several players made runs that, as it turned out, started too late to worry the leader.

Homa won for the first time in his 68th start as a pro and the victory gets him a two-year exemption, a spot at the PGA Championship in two weeks at Bethpage Black and the Masters next April.

"See how it goes being in the heat of it on Saturday and Sunday", Dufner said. Check in for highlights from every tournament plus player interviews, player profiles, tournament previews, swing analysis and all the greatest shots and fantastic moments.
