SILVIS, Ill. (AP) — Lucas Glover is a winner again after 10 long years. It all came together over the back nine at the John Deere Classic.

The former U.S. Open champion birdied five of his last seven and finished with a par save from the bunker. That gave him a 64 and a two-shot victory over Ryan Moore and Kevin Na. It was his first PGA Tour victory after 244 official starts. Glover’s last win was in 2011 at Quail Hollow.

The victory returns him to the Masters. He already was in the British Open next week at Royal St. George’s.
