Many traditionalists have issues with a golf course that ends on a par three. The Greenbrier is one of two courses on the PGA Tour that finish with a par three. East Lake Country Club is the other. But if you’re looking for excitement, sometimes a par three is just what you need.
Ask Scott Stallings if he thinks finishing on a short par three is acceptable. You won’t get any argument. Stallings, a rookie on Tour this year used the par three eighteenth to his advantage today.
Needing to make birdie to get into a three man playoff, Stallings was up to the task as he rolled it in during regulation and joined Bill Haas and Bob Estes back on the eighteenth tee for the playoff.
Once again he stuck it close and rolled his rock for a tournament clinching birdie. Stallings is the sixth rookie to win on The PGA Tour this year and if you want to see one excited golfer check out Stallings as his putt drops in. It can’t get much better than this.
