Bryson DeChambeau completed the first stage of his mission by winning the Northern Trust.

The next one is up to Ryder Cup captain Jim Furyk.

Staked to a 4-shot lead, DeChambeau never let anyone closer than 2 shots, ended the threat with consecutive birdies and closed with a 2-under 69 for a 4-shot victory over Tony Finau on Sunday in the FedEx Cup opener in Paramus, N.J.

DeChambeau won for the second time this year, both times against some of the strongest fields. He moved to the top of the FedEx Cup standings and was all but assured of being one of the top five seeds at the Tour Championship who have a clear shot at the $10 million bonus.

Also on his mind is playing for no money at all at the Ryder Cup.

DeChambeau narrowly missed earning one of the eight automatic spots for the U.S. team when he missed the cut at the PGA Championship. Furyk makes three of his four captain’s picks a week from Tuesday, and it will be tough to ignore a 24-year-old Californian with victories at the Memorial and a FedEx Cup playoff event.

He moves to No. 12 in the world.

Finau closed with a 68 to finish alone in second.

Billy Horschel (68) and Cameron Smith (69) tied for third at 13-under 271, 5 shots off the lead.

Tiger Woods, coming off a runner-up finish at the PGA Championship, never got anything going. He closed with a 70 and tied for 40th, 14 shots out of the lead.

Akron native Harold Varner III had a 4-under total and tied for 40th. Ryan Armour (Walsh Jesuit, Ohio State) had a 6-over total and tied for 78th.

LPGA Tour

Brooke Henderson became the first Canadian to win the country’s national championship in 45 years, closing with a 7-under 65 for a 4-stroke victory in the CP Women’s Open at chilly and rainy Wascana Country Club in Regina, Saskatchewan.

The 20-year-old Henderson, from Smiths Falls, Ontario, finished at 21-under 267, capping the emotional victory in front of a large, adoring gallery with a short birdie putt on the par-4 18th.

Jocelyne Bourassa is the only other Canadian to win the national championship, accomplishing the feat in 1973.

Henderson earned $337,500 for her second victory of the season and seventh of her LPGA Tour career, one short of Sandra Post’s record for Canadians.

Angel Yin was second after a 68. Jennifer Song (67) was 6 back at 15 under.

Champions Tour

Scott Parel won the Boeing Classic for his first PGA Tour Champions title, birdieing the final six holes on the front nine in a 9-under 63.

Five strokes behind Kevin Sutherland and Ken Tanigawa entering the round, Parel beat Sutherland by 3 strokes at the Club at Snoqualmie Ridge in Snoqualmie, Wash.

Parel opened with a birdie on the par-4 first, parred the next two and birdied the final six holes on the front nine. He rebounded from a streak-ending bogey on the par-4 10th with a birdie on the par-4 11th. He also birdied the par-4 16th, and made a curling, downhill 40-footer for another birdie on the par-3 17th.

Parel finished at 18-under 198.

European Tour

Andrea Pavan produced a strong finish on the way to a 5-under 67 to win the Czech Masters for his first European Tour title in Vysoky Ujezd, Czech Republic.

Sharing the overnight lead with three-time major champion Padraig Harrington, the 29-year-old Italian was 2 strokes off the pace when he birdied the par-4 14th in the final round to reduce Harrington’s advantage to 1 shot. Pavan jumped into the lead with another birdie on the par-3 16th after the Irishman dropped a shot on No. 15.

Pavan then birdied No. 17 to close at 22-under 266 for a 2-stroke victory over Harrington at the Albatross Golf Resort near Prague.

Web.com Tour

Robert Streb won the Web.com Tour Finals-opening Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship to regain full PGA Tour status, beating Peter Malnati with a par on the first hole of a playoff in Columbus.

Streb closed with an even-par 72 in scattered showers to match Malnati at 12-under 272 on Ohio State University’s Scarlet Course. The 2015 McGladrey Classic winner for his lone PGA Tour title, Streb earned $180,000.
