Bryson DeChambeau won his second FedEx Cup play-off event in as many weeks with victory at the Dell Technologies Championship at TPC Boston.

The 24-year-old American carded a final-round four-under-par 67 to win by two shots from England’s Justin Rose.

DeChambeau started the second of four end-of-season play-offs leading the FedEx Cup after winning last week’s Northern Trust.

The third event begins on Thursday in Pennsylvania.

Rose’s three-under-par 68 saw him take second position, one shot ahead of Australian Cameron Smith.

World number one Dustin Johnson, who is second in the FedEx Cup standings, finished in a tie for seventh, five shots off the lead.

DeChambeau’s win in Massachusetts makes him the second player – after Vijay Singh in 2008 0 to win the first two legs of the FedEx Cup play-offs.

He is projected to move to number seven in the world rankings.

“It’s such an honour to be able to do it so early in my career,” he told Sky Sports.

“That’s something I’ve been working on doing for a long time and hopefully I can get closer to that number one spot.

“If I keep doing my game its going to be tough to beat,” he added.

European Ryder Cup team-mates Rory McIlroy and Tyrrell Hatton finished tied for 12th at 10 under after one-under and two-over final rounds respectively.

Fourteen-time major winner Tiger Woods started the day just outside the top 10 but an even-par 71 saw him finish tied for 24th on seven under.
