Swede rallies to win Greenbrier Classic

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, West Virginia - Sweden’s Jonas Blixt shot a 3-under 67 Sunday to win the rain-delayed Greenbrier Classic by two strokes.

Blixt emerged from a five-player chase over the final five holes to pick up the $1.1 million winner’s check. Among the perks for his victory are trips to this month’s British Open and next year’s Masters.

He overcame a four-shot deficit at the start of the final round and finished at 13-under 267. Third-round leader Johnson Wagner (73), Australians Steven Bowditch (68) and Matt Jones (68), and Jimmy Walker (71) tied for second at 11 under. AP
