Highlighted by a final-hole eagle, Matthew Wolff produced a Sunday 65 to secure his maiden PGA Tour title in dramatic fashion at the 3M Open.

Wolf, the 54-hole co-leader, finished his final day in Minnesota with one bogey against five birdies and a title-clinching eagle to post 21-under and edge Bryson DeChambeau and Collin Morikawa by a single stroke.

Wolf’s victory marks the second consecutive week on the PGA Tour that the tournament winner had not qualified through a standard exemption. Lashley made the Rocket Mortgage field as a last-minute alternate after failing to Monday qualify, while Wolf relied on a sponsor’s invite.

“I’m speechless right now. It’s something that, you know, I’ll definitely remember as not only my first win, but that putt and to do that with all the nerves and trying to get my Tour card was pretty special to me. You know, I had the same celebration when I won the National Championship at Oklahoma State. I kind of stepped and yelled “Come on!” So it was cool to see that. And like I said, it still hasn’t settled in, but just a dream come true.”
