Daniel Berger retains Memphis title in Tennesse on Sunday
Daniel Berger was successfully able to retain his Memphis title as he won the FedEx St Jude Classic title in Tennesse. The 24-year-old now becomes the fourth golfer to do so, following the footsteps of David Toms, Dave Hill and Lee Trevino. Last year, Daniel claimed his maiden PGA Tour title at the tournament and was quite good to repeat the same this year. Rafael Cabrera-Bello was the joint overnight leader with Berger, and it was until the final round that Daniel had to wait to celebrate his second PGA Tour victory. Cabrera-Bello finished two shots behind Daniel as did Americans Billy Horschel, Braden Thornberry, Chez Reavie and Kevin Chappell. Stewart Cink was close to his first PGA Tour title since 2009 but lost track as he faced trouble on the back nine. McGregor v Mayweather odds and bets by SBAT.
