Bryson DeChambeau rolled in a 58-foot eagle putt from off the green at 16 on Sunday (Monday in Manila) on the way to a one-shot victory in the US PGA Tour's Shriners for Children Open in Las Vegas. By the 16th, three birdies in four holes put him in to the outright lead, but it was then that a costly mistake from the bunker on 17 that swung the tournament in DeChambeau's favour.

And with Cantlay unable to save par at the 17th, DeChambeau suddenly found himself in possession of a two-shot lead.

One hole behind Cantlay, DeChambeau made his eagle putt to take the lead.

Cantlay, trying to defend his title after earning his first PGA Tour win here past year, finished second at 20-under after a final-round 6-under 65. It was his first victory of the new season and fifth overall.

"I realize something has to come to me and I had to get through it, and I knew it was at the 13th hole", said Hataoka of the putt that saved her round.

"I was just coming out here to try to kick the rust off".

Hataoka offset a pair of bogeys with seven birdies at the Seta Golf Club to finish at 14-under 202, two strokes ahead of compatriots Momoka Ueda, Saki Nagamine and Spain's Carlota Ciganda, who all shot 68.

"I knew going into today I was hitting it really well".

"It's a tough day for me", Li said.

"It was manageable. Every time I clenched my fist a little bit too hard or hit a shot that was a little bit too steep, I definitely felt a pull on it".

"When I dug my left foot in it didn't have much sand, and obviously when I hit my shot there was more sand under the ball", he said.

Sam Ryder was one shot behind when his second shot to the par-5 16th bounced off a knob and back into the water.

Fowler reeled off six birdies in eight holes after the turn as the fan-favourite roared into a tie for fifth with Abraham Ancer and Robert Streb, while Glover's tournament ended in miserable fashion as he found two hazards on the closing hole and ran up a triple-bogey seven which saw him slide to 15 under par.

Peter Uihlein, overnight co-leader with DeChambeau, slumped to a share of 23rd after a closing 75, to finish just one shot better off than Australian Tour rookie Cameron Davis (67), who tied for 28th.

Graeme McDowell finished in tied 41 on nine under.
