Brian Harman Wins John Deere Classic

Posted: Updated: Jul 13, 2014 10:31 PM
Brian Harman won his first PGA Tour title on Sunday, pulling away from veteran Zach Johnson, to win the John Deere Classic.

Harman had a 5-under 66 in the final round for a 22-under-262 total and a one-stroke victory over Johnson to win the $846,000 prize, along with the last exemption for next week's British Open.

Harman, a 27-year old Georgian in his third full season on the PGA Tour, withstood Johnson's challenge by making three birdies beginning at No. 14 to get to 23 under with two holes to play. Johnson, playing four pairs ahead of Harman, birdied the 17th to get within a stroke, but ran out of holes.

Jhonattan Vegas raced into a tie for third with a closing 65, ending up tied with Jerry Kelly at 265. Scott Brown and Tim Clark tied for fifth at 266.
