Golf-Swede Stenson wins by one stroke in Greensboro

Aug 20 (Reuters) - Henrik Stenson clinched a one-stroke win at the Wyndham Championship on Sunday for his first victory since the British Open last year.

The Swede reeled off three consecutive birdies from the 15th hole to take the lead before parring the demanding last, sinking his winning putt from inside three feet to edge young American Ollie Schniederjans at Sedgefield Country Club.

Stenson carded 64 to finish at 22-under-par 258 for his sixth PGA Tour victory.

Schniederjans also shot 64 for 21-under, while another American, Webb Simpson, finished four shots back in third place.

Davis Love III, at 53 seeking to become the oldest winner in tour history, finished eight shots adrift in a tie for 10th.
