J.T. Poston shot a final-round 69 at TPC Deere Run to claim a three-shot victory at the 2022 John Deere Classic.

The North Carolina native’s final day in Silvis, Illinois featured a scorecard comprised of two bogeys against four birdies, highlighted by a hat trick of gains to start on Nos. 1, 2 and 3, en route to a four-day score of 21-under par.

“Yeah, it feels great to get another win,” said Poston. “You know, they don’t come easy out here, and I really wanted to get that second win to sort of validate Wyndham, so it feels good to get it out of the way.

“Like you said, been playing some great golf the last few weeks, and really going back to April I felt pretty good about my game. I felt like this was coming, and it’s nice to get it done here at the John Deere where it’s just a great spot.”

For his second career PGA Tour title, Poston earned $1,278,000 and 500 FedExCup points, which moved him to No. 32 on the money list and 22 on points. He also picked up 24 world ranking points and is expected to crack the top 60 for the first time in his career.
