Daniel Berger celebrates after going back to back at TPC Southwinds

Memphis, Tenn. - Defending champion Daniel Berger started the day three

shots behind the lead, but after making hard work on the opener (he needed

to chip in on the first for par) he righted the ship. A final round 66 at TPC

Southwinds was enough to reach 10 under par and clip Charl Schwartzel

and South Korean Whee Kim by a stroke - becoming only the fourth player

ever to repeat in Memphis (Hill, Trevino and David Toms are the others).


"We hear a lot about the young guns and about Justin Thomas and Jordan

Spieth, but I feel like I kind of get forgotten a little bit," Berger said. "I'm

pretty good, so I'm just going to try and keep doing my thing and see if I

can't get a few more. I played really great through the first couple days

but I didn't make as many putts," Berger said. "Then the last couple days

they just started to fall and that was the big difference."



Both Schwartzel who shot a final round 66, and Whee Kim with 67 finished

tied at -9.
