Blixt wins rain-delayed Greenbrier Classic by 2
By JOHN RABY
WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) Jonas Blixt shot a 3-under 67 on Sunday to win the rain-delayed Greenbrier Classic by two strokes.
The Swede emerged from a five-player chase over the final five holes to pick up the $1.1 million winner's check. He also gets a spot in the upcoming British Open and next year's Masters for the victory.
Blixt overcame a four-shot deficit at the start of the final round and finished at 13 under. Third-round leader Johnson Wagner (73), Australians Steven Bowditch (68) and Matt Jones (68), and Jimmy Walker (71) tied for second.
Blixt went ahead with a 9-foot birdie putt on No. 16 and wrapped up his second tour win with two pars.
Play on the Old White TPC course was halted for three hours due to thunderstorms.
