Kevin Chappell celebrated his first PGA Tour title after winning the Valero Texas Open.

The 30-year-old American, who has six runners-up finishes to his name, finally went one better with a one-shot victory over compatriot Brooks Koepka in San Antonio.

Chappell, the overnight leader, got the job done as he birdied the final hole to card a four-under-par 68 and avoid a play-off with Koepka.

He told the pgatour.com: "I am excited that I don't have to answer that question of, 'What do I have to do to win again'. There is some excitement and a lot of joy right now.

"I was really calm all day, I never freaked out. Playing the last hole was simple, make a four and I win the tournament."

Koepka had fired himself into contention with an impressive 65, which included eight birdies and one bogey.

Kevin Tway and Tony Finau were a shot further back on nine-under, with Australian Aaron Baddeley on eight under.
