WATCH: Kevin Chappell follows winning putt with epic celebration

Kevin Chappell was 8 feet, 2 inches away from his first career PGA Tour victory, and when his ball found the cup the emotions finally emptied.

Chappell shot a four-under 68 to win the Valero Texas Open on Sunday, but he needed to birdie the par-5 18th to avoid a playoff against Brooks Koepka, who grabbed the clubhouse lead with the lowest round of the day (65).

But the 30-year-old Chappell didn't need a playoff. Watch his winning putt below, which was followed by an epic celebration.
