Scott Stallings wins Greenbrier Classic
PGA Tour rookie Scott Stallings won his maiden title via a playoff at the Greenbrier Classic in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia on Sunday.

The 26-year-old native of Worchester, Mass., sank a 7 foot putt for birdie on the first extra hole, beating Bob Estes and Bill Haas who couldn’t match his efforts on the 18th.

''To be a champion in such a great event is a huge blessing,'' Stallings said.

While the other two could manage par with longer distance, Stallings stepped up to take his first tour victory. He flipped his putter, and then embraced his caddie.

Along with the title, Stallings takes home a check for $1.08 million and place in the Bridgestone Invitational.

''I've wanted to do this since I was a little kid,'' Stallings said. ''I was that little boy running around chasing autographs and yelling at guys because they wouldn't stop and sign my golf balls.''

In its second year, the course was increased over 200 yards in length and the reseeded greens much less kinder to approach shots.

Former champ Stuart Appleby and marquee player Phil Mickelson both failed to make the cut, and the lowest round of the tournament was a 62 by Anthony Kim on Saturday.

Stallings started the day a stroke off the lead but three bogeys on the front nine seemed to put him out of the running.

 However, a run of four birdies after the turn, and a 103-yard wedge to within a foot of the hole on the 16th brought him to 10 under. 

A birdie on the final hole, and he had sealed his playoff place.
