WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. - Angel Cabrera won the Greenbrier Classic on Sunday for his first non-major victory on the PGA Tour, closing with his second straight 6-under 64 for a two-stroke victory over George McNeill.

Cabrera, the 44-year-old Argentine whose only other PGA Tour victories came in the 2007 U.S. Open and 2009 Masters, built a three-shot lead before making things interesting with a pair of late bogeys. He finished at 16-under 264 at Old White TPC.

McNeill shot a season-best 61 for his fourth top-10 of the season and first since mid-March.

Webb Simpson had a 63 to finish third at 10 under.

Third-round leader Billy Hurley III bogeyed four of the first six holes to fall out of contention. He shot 73 and finished in a seven-way tie for fourth at 9 under.

Bud Cauley (64), Bradley (66), Brendon Todd (66), Chris Stroud (69), Cameron Tringale (69) and Will Wilcox (69) also finished at 9 under.

The leading four players among the top 12 not already exempt for the British Open earned spots in the July 17-20 tournament at Royal Liverpool. Those spots went to McNeill, Stroud, Tringale and Hurley.

FRENCH OPEN

SAINT-QUENTIN-EN-YVELINES, France (AP) — Graeme McDowell rallied to successfully defend his French Open title, overcoming an eight-stroke deficit in rainy conditions for a one-shot victory.

McDowell, from Northern Ireland, closed with a 4-under 67 to finish at 5-under 279 total on Le Golf National's Albatross Course, the site of the 2018 Ryder Cup.

American Kevin Stadler, the leader after each of the first three rounds, finished with a 76 to tie for second with Thailand's Thongchai Jaidee (72).

Stadler had a chance to win on the last hole, but he missed a long birdie putt. He then failed to force a playoff when he missed a 3-foot par try.

LADIES EUROPEAN MASTERS

DENHAM, England (AP) — South Korea's I.K. Kim won the Ladies European Masters, closing with a 3-under 68 for a five-stroke victory in the final event before the Women's British Open.

Kim had an 18-under 270 total at Buckinghamshire for her first victory since the LPGA Tour's 2010 Lorena Ochoa Invitational. Australia's Nikki Campbell was second after a 67.

Northern Ireland's Stephanie Meadow, the former University of Alabama star playing her second event as a professional, matched the course record with a 63 to tie for third at 11 under.

The Women's British Open starts Thursday at Royal Birkdale.

NOVA SCOTIA OPEN

HALIFAX, Nova Scotia (AP) — Canada's Roger Sloan won the Nova Scotia Open for first Web.com Tour title, holing a 5-foot par putt on the first hole of a playoff with Derek Fathauer.

The 27-year-old Sloan, a former Texas-El Paso player from Merritt, British Columbia, played 37 holes Sunday after high wind from Tropical Storm Arthur wiped out third-round play Saturday.

Sloan closed with rounds of 71 and 70 to match Fathauer at 11-under 273 on Ashburn Golf Club's New Course. Fathauer had rounds of 71 and 66.

Sloan earned $117,000 to push his season total to $149,303.

John Mallinger shot 67-73 to finish third at 8 under.
