Jonas Blixt overcame a four-shot deficit and shot a three-under 67 to secure his second-career victory at the Greenbrier Classic. It was an emotional win for the Swede, who earned a spot in the field for next year’s Masters — he won the Frys.com Open last fall, which didn’t come along with the coveted invite because it was a Fall Series event. 

Meanwhile, Johnson Wagner, who had a two-shot lead going into the final round, didn’t get the job done, posting a three-over 73, which was somewhat uncharacteristic. In past occasions when Wagner has been the frontrunner, he’s closed the deal. (Maybe he shouldn’t have shaved off his legendary ‘stash?) He ended up in a four-way tie for second with Jimmy Walker, who also didn’t play his best on Sunday, Steven Bowditch and Matt Jones.

Apologies for the brevity of this post, but I got sick at dinner and still haven’t packed for my three-week adventure in Scotland/Ireland (#humblebrag), so I’ll be back with more pensive thoughts when I’m free.
