(Reuters) – Bryson DeChambeau became the first player to win consecutive tournaments on the PGA Tour this season when he clinched a two-stroke victory over Justin Rose at the Dell Technologies Championship on Monday.

DeChambeau opened a four-stroke lead early on the back nine en route to a four-under-par 67 at TPC Boston in Massachusetts.

The American finished at 16-under 268, while Englishman Rose birdied four of the final six holes to claim second place with a 68.

DeChambeau’s victory in the second PGA Tour playoff event, following his previous win at the Northern Trust, increased his lead in the FedExCup standings with two tournaments left.

The 24-year-old is expected to be named a captain’s pick on Tuesday as part of the United States team for this month’s Ryder Cup in Paris.
