J.T. Poston has won the Wyndham Championship for his first PGA Tour title, shooting an 8-under 62 for a one-stroke victory over Webb Simpson.

Poston tied Henrik Stenson's 2-year-old tournament record at 22-under 258.  He became the first player since Lee Trevino in 1974 to win a 72-hole stroke-play event on tour without any bogeys or worse.

The native North Carolinian began his round three strokes back and eventually took the lead for good with a birdie on the par-5 15th hole.
