Spain’s Sergio Garcia won the rain-disrupted Wyndham Championship by two strokes Monday, securing a Ryder Cup berth with his first US PGA Tour title since 2008.

Garcia, one of 38 players returning to the course Monday to complete a final round halted by rain, carded a 66 for an 18-under par total of 262.

It was Garcia’s first US title since he won the 2008 Players Championship, and his first title worldwide since his back-to-back victories on the European Tour last October.

Garcia started the week at 11th on the World Points List, with the top 10 on the list earning automatic berths on the European Ryder Cup team to take on the United States in September.

The points for the victory took him to fifth, and with just one more eligible event remaining at Gleneagles he can’t be pushed out of the top 10.
