Mickelson, Fowler among top names at St Jude Classic


Daniel Berger will head to the US Open with confidence after surprising himself by becoming the fourth player to retain his title at the St Jude Classic in Memphis on Sunday.

South Africa's Schwartzel had five birdies and a bogey in his four-under par 66 while Colombia's Muñoz carded a 67 that featured four birdies and a bogey.

Berger, 24, is the fourth repeat victor at St. Jude and the first since David Toms did it in 2003 and '04.

Phil Mickelson was also in the mix on Sunday, but veered off track with a triple-bogey on the 12th hole to trickle back.
