Texas Open: Andrew Landry earns first PGA Tour victory

Texas Open: Andrew Landry earns first PGA Tour victory

Zach Johnson, seeking his first victory since the 2015 British Open, closed with a six-foot birdie putt to seize a share of the lead Saturday at the PGA Texas Open.

"We'll take it", a relieved Landry said in a greenside interview.

Landry, who shared the overnight lead with Zach Johnson on 13 under, birdied four of the first six holes and then the 10th to reach 18-under with seven to play.

Landry shot a final-round 4-under 68 to win by two strokes over Trey Mullinax and Sean O'Hair.

Mullinax left himself a nine-foot birdie putt while Landry needed to two-putt from 50 feet for the victory but rolled his first putt eight feet past the cup.

Justice Secretary David Gauke said the Government needs to make the case to MPs for leaving the customs union as part of Brexit.

Mullinax closed with a 69 a day after breaking the AT&T Oaks Course record with a 62. "I know my game's there, I'm playing really well", Mullinax said. "This week I make a change and my putting was working really well". The 30-year-old opened some eyes when he went shot for shot with Jon Rahm in a playoff defeat back at the CareerBuilder Challenge, but since that time he had missed the cut in four straight starts before a T42 at the RBC Heritage last week. After two birdies and two bogeys on the front nine, Johnson caught fire on the back side, sinking 20-foot birdie putts at the par-4 11th and 15th holes and a 17-foot birdie putt at the par-5 14th as well as his closer at the par-5 18th.

Chilean 19-year-old Joaquin Niemann, the former world amateur number one making his professional debut, fired his second 67 in a row to finish sixth on 276.

"It helps because you get yourself in that situation and you continue to learn", Landry said.

"It's awesome. It's a lot of fun to be standing among the best players in the world on that leaderboard", Niemann said. Just my putter wasn't good enough.

The 23-year-old from Thailand shot a 3-under 68 for a 272 total Sunday at Wilshire Country Club in the tour's return to Los Angeles after a 13-year absence.
