CROMWELL, Conn. (AP) — Fredrik Jacobson closed out his first PGA Tour title on Sunday, shooting a 66 in the final round of the Travelers Championship.

Jacobson, who joined the tour eight years ago and has three career wins in Europe, had just one bogey in the tournament and finished at 20-under par, two shots off the course record.

John Rollins and Ryan Moore each shot a 63 on Sunday and tied for second. Moore missed a 4-foot par putt on 18 that would have kept him tied for the lead.

Nineteen-year-old UCLA star Patrick Cantlay, who shot a course-record 60 on Friday — the lowest round ever by an amateur in a tour event — finished at 11 under par after shooting 72 and 70 over the weekend.
