J.T. Poston fired an 8-under 62 on Sunday to come from behind and win the Wyndham Championship for his first career PGA Tour title.

The 26-year-old North Carolina native entered the day three shots behind 54-hole leader Byeong Hun An but quickly erased the deficit by playing his first eight holes at 5-under, helped by an eagle on No. 5. He added three more birdies on the back nine to post a 22-under for the tournament.

Poston went bogey-free for the week at Sedgefield Country Club - a course located less than 100 miles from his hometown of Hickory, N.C. - to become the first player since Lee Trevino in 1974 to win a 72-hole PGA Tour event without bogeying, according to the 15th Club's Justin Ray.

An held a share of the lead after each round at Wyndham Championship but relinquished his spot at the top of the leaderboard with a 3-under 67 on Sunday. He bogeyed his final hole to drop into third place.

Webb Simpson birdied his final hole of the week to jump into a solo second-place finish. He's now been the runner-up in back-to-back years at the Wyndham Championship.

Here's how the top of the leaderboard finished:
