Heavy sighs of relief could be felt this weekend on both the PGA and European Tours, as worthy victors claimed titles at the Valero Texas Open and the Shenzhen International. Check out all the headlines from Sunday plus the winning gear available now at GolfOnline.

After 180 professional starts Kevin Chappell has finally managed to secure his first PGA Tour win. Claiming victory at the Valero Texas Open and narrowly escaping the need for a playoff against Brooks Koepka with a birdie on the 18th. Finishing with an impressive 12-under 276 Chappell was visibly pumped after sinking the winning putt.

When asked how it felt to finally have a PGA Tour title under his belt, Chappell told reporters, “I’m just excited I don’t have to answer that question again, what do I have to do to win.”

Over on the European Tour it was Bernd Wiesberger’s time to shine at the Shenzhen International. The 31-year-old has been enjoying great form over the past few months with multiple top-10 finishes but until yesterday hadn’t managed a win since July 2015. The Austrian proved he was capable of sealing the deal after winning the 1st hole of a sudden death playoff against England’s Tommy Fleetwood to secure his fourth European Tour title.

“I’m feeling a bit relieved now I have to say,” Wiesberger told reporters afterwards. “I’ve had a stretch of really good events the last couple of months and it’s really nice to have a trophy again.”

Adding, “We have really good players out here, all up for it, playing well and throwing a lot at me. At the end of the day I’m just glad I got myself into the spot where I could play for the title.”

Here’s a look at all the gear Wiesberger’s using to maintain his top form.
