Kevin Chappell made an eight-foot putt on the final hole to win the Valero Texas Open by one stroke.

Chappell carded a four-under 68 in the final round to finish at 12-under for the tournament, edging Brooks Koepka at TPC San Antonio to earn his first PGA Tour victory in his 180th career start.

Koepka, a member of the US Ryder Cup team last year, was aiming for his second PGA Tour win. He had the best round of the day with a 65. Before Chappell came down the 18th hole, Koepka had birdied the hole with a three-foot putt to tie him.
