Bryson DeChambeau had a classy move after losing the PGA Championship on Sunday.

DeChambeau shot a 7-under 64 in the final round of the PGA Championship at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Kentucky to finish the event 20-under par. Though he had surged into a tie for the top spot, Xander Schauffele made a birdie putt on 18 to win the event for his first career major.

After Schauffele got done celebrating on the green and was walking to sign his scorecard, DeChambeau popped up to congratulate his colleague. DeChambeau shook Schauffele’s hand in what CBS announcer Jim Nantz described as a “class” move.

DeChambeau showed no hard feelings despite finishing second. It would be hard for him not to be proud of his performance considering the 64 he carded Sunday was his best round of the event.

Schauffele has now won his first career major, and he did so by becoming the 11th wire-to-wire winner of the PGA Championship. He started strong with a record 62 in the first round on Thursday, and he finished strong as well with a 65 on Sunday to finally break through for his first major.
