Cameron Champ shoots 64, takes 4-stroke lead in Jackson

Cameron Champ is probably the longest driver the US PGA Tour has seen, but his putter won him the Sanderson Farms Championship in Mississippi.

The 23-year-old Californian, in only his ninth tour start, took a wire-to-wire victory with a final-round four-under par 68 to finish 72 holes at the Country Club of Jackson in MS on 21-under 267.

"It means everything", Champ said after a final round 68 in which he was forced to use a spare driver after cracking his regular club shortly before teeing off.

Champ completed the tournament on 21-under 267, while Conners also carded 68 for second place on 17-under.

"Today was a new experience for me", Champ said. "The back side I put it all together and brought it home". Champ clinched the victory with a 158-yard shot from the rough on No. 18 that came within seven feet of the hole to set up a birdie putt. He cruised through the first six holes at 1 under, but back-to-back bogeys on Nos.

For Champ, the week started with an impressive 7-under 65, and he improved on that in Round 3 with an 8-under 64.

Corey Conners of Listowel, Ont., was second, matching Champ with a 64 to get to 13 under. The 26-year-old Canadian had three birdies on the front nine, and his birdie putt on the par-4 No. 9 had him in serious contention.

Cameron closed out in style with another birdie at the last for a four-under-par 68. "I had a couple 15-foot par putts and bogey free is always nice". Adam Svensson (72) of Surrey, B.C., was tied for 58th.

Nick Taylor (71) of Abbotsford, B.C., and Ben Silverman (71) of Thornhill, Ont., were tied for 36th at 5 under.
