NOTES: The PGA Tour travels to West Virginia this week for The Greenbrier Classic at The Old White TPC. The course is part of The Greenbrier Resort in White Sulphur Springs. Seven of the top-25 players in the world are in the field - Bubba Watson (3), J.B. Holmes (13), Patrick Reed (15), Louis Oosthuizen (18), Paul Casey (23), Kevin Na (24) and Bill Haas (25). The purse increased $200,000 from last year to $6.7 million, with the winner receiving $1,206,000. Watson is a 2-time winner this season, capturing the WGC-HSBC Champions and the Travelers Championship last week. He is currently fifth on the money list with over $3.9 million in earnings. Former world No. 1 Tiger Woods is playing in this event for the second time. He missed the cut here in 2012 in his only previous appearance. Woods is playing for the first time since missing the cut at the U.S. Open two weeks ago after carding rounds of 80-76. The Old White TPC is located in the Allegheny Mountains of West Virginia. Sam Snead was the resort's pro for 29 years and served as Golf Professional Emeritus from 1993 until his death in 2002. Snead recorded his final hole-in- one in 1995 on the 18th hole. Fellow Hall of Famer Tom Watson became the Golf Professional Emeritus in 2005. Last year, Angel Cabrera closed with a 6-under 64 in the final round and rallied to win by two strokes over George McNeill. Cabrera ended at 16-under- par 264. This was his third PGA Tour win, but first in a regular tour stop. His other two victories were in major championships. With Cabrera's come-from- behind win, that means all five winners of this tournament have rallied in the final round to win the title. In 2013, Jonas Blixt endured a lengthy weather delay in the final round to win as darkness descended. Entering the final round four strokes behind Johnson Wagner, Blixt finally teed off just after 5 p.m. ET after rain halted play at the Old White TPC Course for three-plus hours. When the skies cleared, Blixt countered five birdies against two bogeys in fading light, taking the lead for good with a birdie at the par-4 16th. The 29-year-old Swede parred his final two holes and finished the tournament at 13-under-par 267 for his second PGA Tour win in his 38th start. In 2012, after missing a potential winning putt on the second playoff hole, Ted Potter, Jr. birdied the third extra hole to defeat Troy Kelly. Potter, who earned his first PGA Tour title, fired two rounds of 6-under 64 on the weekend to reach 16-under-par 264 after 72 holes with Kelly. In 2010, Stuart Appleby shot a 59 in the final round to win by one stroke over Jeff Overton, becoming the fifth player in PGA Tour history to reach golf's magic number. It was the first 59 a PGA Tour player carded on a par-70 course and moved Appleby to 22-under 258 for the tournament. The veteran Australian emerged from a 4-year winless drought for his ninth tour title. Appleby joined David Duval as the only players to shoot 59 in the final round to win a tournament. Duval accomplished the feat at the 1999 Bob Hope Classic. Next week, the PGA Tour heads to Illinois for the final tune-up for the British Open, the John Deere Classic in Silvis, where Brian Harman captured the 2014 title. 06/30 17:44:35 ET
