Overnight co-leader Sean O'Hair settled for a 1-over-par 35-36=71 in the final round of The Greenbrier Classic to conclude at 10-under 270, good for a nine-way tie for 13th place.
O'Hair, playing in the final pairing with Jason Bohn, was part of a four-way tie for first after 54 holes. The 32-year-old, looking to avenge a playoff loss earlier this season at the Valspar Championship, got off to a horrible start, squaring bogeys at the par-4 first and at the par-4 sixth respectively. In each instance, he couldn't find the surface on his third shot from inside of 44 yards. He circled birdie from 17'1" at the ninth to turn in 1-over. It would be his only par breaker of the round, finishing with nine consecutive pars. In total, O'Hair landed nine (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, but struggled to get the ball close to the hole, resulting in 1.929 putt per GIR. The 32-year-old entered the week 61st in the FedExCup standings and concluded the week 58th, collecting 54 points in his seventh top-25 finish of the season on 20 starts.
Overnight co-leader Jason Bohn back-pedaled to a 1-over-par 35-36=71 in the final round of The Greenbrier Classic to finish up his fourth appearance over the Old White TPC at 10-under 270, good for a share of 13th place.
Bohn, coming off a career-low 9-under 61 in round three, was vying to become the first person to make the cut on the number and go on to win, joining Carl Pettersson at the 2010 RBC Canadian Open. It didn't work out that way for the 42-year-old, as he overshadowed two birdies with three bogeys to drop off the pace. Bohn landed six greens in regulation on a 1-over outward nine, but his shortest look at birdie was from 24 feet. He didn't circle his first birdie until a 12'0" roll on the par-4 10th. His longest dropped putt on the day came at the par-5 12th, from 13'1", and it was to save par after his approach found the water. He squared consecutive bogeys at 14 and 15 to knock him out of the title chase. Bohn did have two other good looks from inside 12 feet for birdies at 13 and 18, but couldn't get either to go. His struggles weren't off the tee box, where he piped 14 (of 14 fairways), but rather the 11 greens in regulation and his inability to hit it closer to the target.
Overnight co-leader Bryce Molder stalled out to an even-par 34-36=70 in the final round of The Greenbrier Classic to conclude at 11-under 269, good for a seven-way tie for sixth place and two shots out of a playoff.
Molder, vying for his second career PGA TOUR title (2011 Frys.com Open), began the final round in a four-way tie for the lead. The 36-year-old, playing in the penultimate pairing with S.J. Park, never got much of anything going, exchanging one birdie at the par-3 second with one bogey at the par-4 sixth. He concluded his round with 12 consecutive pars. The lack of a charge wasn't the result of his ball-striking, landing 13 (of 14) fairways and hitting 16 greens in regulation. Molder ranked first in strokes gained: putting thru three rounds, but his flat stick abandoned him on Sunday, clocking in at -1.697 in the putting stat over his final frame. He didn't have many realistic scoring chances however, with his lone conversion at the third, from 4'5", his only birdie putt from inside 12 feet on his entire loop. Molder's T6-finish was his second top 10 on the season (19 starts). His previous best at The Old White TPC in two prior appearances was T17 in 2013.
David Hearn crafted a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the final round of The Greenbrier Classic to match Kevin Kisner, Robert Streb and Danny Lee's 13-under 267 total and then lost on the second playoff hole to Lee.
Hearn came to the 18th hole needing birdie to win in regulation but missed from 12'3", settling for his second career playoff appearance (loss 2013 John Deere Classic). The Canadian matched Lee's birdie on the first playoff hole (par-3 18th), calmly draining nearly the exact same putt that would have won it for him in regular time, thereby eliminating Kisner and Streb. The 36-year-old made a mess of the second sudden-death hole however (par-5 17th), opening the door for Lee to take the title with par. Hearn began the day at 10-under (T5) and one shot off the 54-hole lead. He outbalanced two bogeys with five birdies at Nos. 4, 7, 10, 13 and 16, concluding the week first in strokes gained: putting, and T1 in strokes gained: total. The 36-year-old's runner-up pushed aside his previous season-best T6 at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans as well as a personal-best T12 at the 2012 Greenbrier.
At 9-under-par 68-70-67-66=271, Chez Reavie was among seven golfers to share 22nd place at The Greenbrier Classic.
He closed with five birdies against just one bogey at The Old White TPC today. After starting the season 3-for-13 with zero top 25s, Reavie has strung three top 25s together. Today's haul included $60,395.72 and 46 FedExCup points. He'll head to the John Deere Classic with eight starts remaining on his Major Medical Extension to earn $399,078 or 185.167 FedExCup points and retain status. Don't rule out another strong week. Reavie recorded top 15s in two of his last three appearances in the Quad Cities.
Abraham Ancer posted a 3-under-par 34-34=68 in the final round of the Nova Scotia Open and survived a playoff against Bronson Burgoon to capture his first career Web.com Tour win in just his 18th attempt.
Acner finished the week at 13-under 271 and moves from 39th to fourth on the Web.com Tour money list. That will assure him of a 2015-16 PGA TOUR card. He was lucky just to earn a spot in the playoff, as he had to birdie the par-4 18th just to join the fun. He repeated the feat in the first playoff hole, ousting Burgoon with the birdie. Ancer had four birdies on his card in regulation to go with a long bogey at Ashburn GC. He turned pro in 2013 after a collegiate career at Oklahoma, so his imminent ascent to the PGA TOUR via the Web.com Tour at the end of the season has taken very little time.
Greg Owen capped his week at The Old White TPC with a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of The Greenbrier Classic to post 11-under 269, good for an exemption into The Open Championship.
Owen started the day outside the top 10, and then traded five birdies with two bogeys. He hit 17 greens in regulation, failed to salvage par on the other hole and added a three-putt bogey at the par-3 eighth hole. The top four, not otherwise exempt, inside the top 12 and ties today punched tickets to St. Andrews. The Englishman was one of five tied for sixth place not already exempt, but after David Hearn (T1) and Danny Lee (T1) secured the first two spots, Owen wrangled his for having the second-best Official World Golf Ranking (194th). James Hahn (T6) is 106th, so he received the other berth. The trio that failed to collect consisted of Bryce Molder (248th), Andres Romero (315th) and Chad Collins (350th). Of today's qualifiers, only Owen (seven appearances) and Hearn (one appearance) have competed in the season's third major.
Danny Lee carded a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of The Greenbrier Classic to match Kevin Kisner, Robert Streb and David Hearn at 13-under 267, and then won with par on the second playoff hole.
Like Kisner and Hearn, Lee had an outside chance to win in regulation at the last, but missed a 20-footer. The eventual champ exchanged birdies with Hearn on the first playoff hole (par-3 18th) to eliminate Kisner and Streb. Hearn made a mess of the second playoff hole (par-5 17th), opening the door for Lee to capture his first PGA TOUR title (95th career start as a pro). Lee began the day at 10-under, one swing back. On his round, he hit 13 greens and registered 1.692 putts per GIR, leading the field in that stat. Interestingly, he never joined the lead until circling his fourth birdie of the day at the 17th. In his previous two appearances at Greenbrier, Lee missed the cut in 2012 and finished T16 in 2014. In addition to full status on the PGA TOUR through 2016-17, he's now exempt into the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and PGA Championship this summer. Of course, he also collected a berth into next week's Open Championship.
