John Deere Classic 2022: JT Poston goes wire-to-wire for victory

Three strokes ahead entering the day at TPC Deere Run, Poston closed with a 2-under 69 for a three-stroke margin over fellow British Open qualifiers Christiaan Bezuidenhout and Emiliano Grillo.

It is hard,” Poston said. “Wire-to-wire, having the lead for so long that it’s just hard not to think about that fine line all week. I tried to stick to the game plan.

Poston finished at 21-under 263. He opened with rounds of 62, 65 en 67.

Bezuidenhout shot a 66, and Grillo had a 69.

I just knew I needed a solid week,” Grillo said. “I just needed to play well and go up the rankings and have a job for next year. That was more important for me than going to the Open. Now I get both, so that’s pretty special.

Christopher Gotterup, the former Rutgers player in the field on a sponsor exemption, het 'n 66 to tie for fourth at 17 under with Scott Stallings (70).

Just more validation that I do belong out here,” Gotterup said. “En eerlik, I didn’t have my greatest stuff this week. Hit it amazing, but just putted pretty poorly until coming down the stretch.

Poston birdied the first three holes, bogeyed Nos. 5 en 6 and parred the next 10. He made a 4-footer for birdie on the par-5 17th and parred the 18th.

I was just trying to breathe,” Poston said. “I was really. I think there were a lot of nerves, a lot more than the first few days. I was just battling through them. I think after today, after this week, I feel like knowing I can play with those nerves and I can still win, still shoot a solid score considering the pressure and trying to win out here.

The 29-year-old player from Hickory, Noord-Carolina, won a week after tying for second in Connecticut in the Travelers Championship. He also won the 2019 Wyndham Championship.

The British Open is July 14-17 at the Old Course at St. Andrews.

I can’t wait,” Poston said. “I’ve always wanted to play in one of those at any venue, but first one to be in St. Andrews and the 150th, I can’t wait to get there and see what it’s like.
