Greenbrier Classic Golf

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) – Angel Cabrera won the Greenbrier Classic on Sunday for his first non-major victory on the PGA Tour, closing with his second straight 6-under 64 for a two-stroke victory over George McNeill.

Cabrera, the Argentine whose only other PGA Tour victories came in the 2007 U.S. Open and 2009 Masters, built a three-shot lead before making things interesting with a pair of late bogeys. He finished at 16-under 264.

McNeill shot a season-best 61 for his fourth top-10 of the season and first since mid-March.

Webb Simpson had a 63 to finish third at 10 under.

Third-round leader Billy Hurley III bogeyed four of the first six holes to fall out of contention. He shot a 73 and finished in a seven-way tie for fourth at 9 under.

Former Kansas State golfer Robert Streb finished in 71st at +3, and Topeka-native Gary Woodland finished in 72nd at +5.
