WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) — Angel Cabrera won the Greenbrier Classic on Sunday for his first non-major victory on the PGA Tour, closing with his second straight 6-under 64 for a two-stroke victory over George McNeill.

Cabrera, the 44-year-old Argentine whose only other PGA Tour victories came in the 2007 U.S. Open and 2009 Masters, built a three-shot lead before making things interesting with a pair of late bogeys. He finished at 16-under 264 at Old White TPC.

McNeill shot a season-best 61 for his fourth top-10 of the season and first since mid-March.

Webb Simpson had a 63 to finish third at 10 under.

Third-round leader Billy Hurley III bogeyed four of the first six holes to fall out of contention. He shot 73 and finished in a seven-way tie for fourth at 9 under.

Bud Cauley (64), Bradley (66), Brendon Todd (66), Chris Stroud (69), Cameron Tringale (69) and Will Wilcox (69) also finished at 9 under.

The leading four players among the top 12 not already exempt for the British Open earned spots in the July 17-20 tournament at Royal Liverpool. Those spots went to McNeill, Stroud, Tringale and Hurley.

FRENCH OPEN

SAINT-QUENTIN-EN-YVELINES, France (AP) — Graeme McDowell rallied to successfully defend his French Open title, overcoming an eight-stroke deficit in rainy conditions for a one-shot victory.

McDowell, from Northern Ireland, closed with a 4-under 67 to finish at 5-under 279 total on Le Golf National's Albatross Course, the site of the 2018 Ryder Cup.

American Kevin Stadler, the leader after each of the first three rounds, finished with a 76 to tie for second with Thailand's Thongchai Jaidee (72).
