DES MOINES, Iowa - Brandt Jobe won the PGA Tour Champions event Sunday by one shot, finishing at 14-under 202 for his first victory in 19 years.

South Africa's Schwartzel had five birdies and a bogey in his four-under par 66 while Colombia's Muñoz carded a 67 that featured four birdies and a bogey. I've been in contention the last three or four years, have not won it.

"I'm one-for-one defending titles, so that's a pretty good stat", he joked after securing his second PGA Tour victory at the age of 24.

Coming off a tied for second at the Memorial Tournament, Fowler had a double-bogey at the par-four 13th and a seven at the 15th.

In a keenly-fought contest, which at one point included nine players tied for the lead, Berger picked up a birdie on 15 to move clear.

Starting on the back-nine, Power birdied the 10th and followed it up with another on the 13th.

The players in or near the lead figure to have an added advantage this weekend, with temperatures nearing 100 degrees and strong wind gusts expected.

"It was nearly like I was a rookie today because I saw".

Daniel Berger went back-to-back at the St. Jude Classic after triumphing by a stroke.

Graeme Storm of England shot a 69 to stay within two strokes of Aguilar, while Sweden's Johan Carlsson and England's Oliver Fisher were another stroke behind in third. The Englishman joined a group of four at 5-under 139, which included 2012 victor Bernd Wiesberger.

Unfortunately, none of Cameron Percy (72-72), Stuart Appleby (72-73), Steve Bowditch (74-74) or Curtis Luck (72-77) - whose tournament came undone with a couple of water balls en route to a quintuple-bogey nine on the 12th - will be around for the chase after the cut was made at two over.

South Korean Kim Meen-whee has set a new career high on the PGA Tour with a runner-up finish.

Jodi Ewart Shadoff of England (69) was one shot back in fourth place.

Reavie's round of 65, consisting of three birdies and an eagle, surged him up the leaderboard, while Schwartzel would have been sole leader had he not bogeyed his penultimate hole.
