With some of the world's best players chasing him, Max Homa remained composed as he claimed his maiden PGA Tour title by three shots at Quail Hollow with a final round four-under 67 to finish on 15-under-par.

Defending champion Jason Day of Australia shot 74 and is in a tie for 28th includes Lucas Glover, the 2011 champion at Quail Hollow, who had a 72, while 2017 Wells Fargo champion Brian Harman is tied for 42nd after a 69. "It means a lot to do it under pressure, and job security is great". Homa never flinched, effectively sealing it with a long shot up the hill and onto the green at the par-5 15th for a two-putt birdie, saving par to keep a three-shot lead going to the final hole and drilling his tee shot down the fairway.

McIlroy began the day two off Max Homa's lead and looking for his third title at Quail Hollow. McIlroy made double bogey at No. 8, and then went over the green on No. 9 for a bogey and a 70.

"I knew in the back of my mind if I made that putt, I win this golf tournament", he said.

Dufner, a five-time victor on the PGA Tour who matched his career-low round, was the victor of 2013 PGA Championship. I think it's similar here.

Three consecutive par putts from just over five feet kept Homa s lead intact, the last of them coming at 14 after a rain delay drenched the course.

England's Justin Rose was sixth on 205 after a 68 while Englishman Paul Casey fired a 66 to stand on 206 with Ireland's Seamus Power, who shot 69.

"I didn't beat myself today", said Dahmen, who could hardly have been happier for the victor and was looking forward to a big night on the town. "I like how I played, I like my chances and I like where I'm standing after three days". "After I made double, then I got nervous because I didn't want to shoot myself out of this thing".

Dahmen will be in the penultimate group with Perez. He started play Saturday with a par putt on his fourth hole.

That's when the second horn sounded to stop play. That was his last mistake.

That wasn't enough to qualify for next week's US PGA via a mini money list, but he still earned crucial FedExCup points to move from 117th to 101st - rising 78 places over the past three weeks - with the top 125 keeping their cards. Weiskopf won the old Kemper Open three times on this course before the tournament moved to Washington.

McIlroy said the key for him Sunday will be patience, something he learned after winning the Players Championship earlier this year.

"I told myself I'm right in the thick of the tournament but you have to stay patient and nearly let it come to you rather than try to chase it", McIlroy said about The Players Championship.

Another shot behind was a group that include Sergio Garcia, who shot 30 on the front nine in the morning on his way to a 65, and Rickie Fowler, who had a 66.

Rory McIlroy says that he has found the greens at Quail Hollow Club the most challenging this week due to the firmness and trickiness in play.
