Scott Stallings

In 2009, Scott Stallings, a former all-American golfer at Tennessee Tech, attend the PGA Tour's Qualifying School for the first time.

He missed earning a PGA Tour card by a single stroke.

He was back the next year to earn it, only to find out the PGA Tour is no picnic, missing five straight cuts in 2010 before finally tying for 42nd at the Puerto Rico Open.

Stallings' entire career has been a case study that nothing comes easy on the PGA Tour, even for the most talented golfers in the world.

His first PGA win came at the Greenbrier Classic in July 2011. Leading throughout, he struggled down the stretch and had to pull out the victory in a three-man playoff with Bob Estes and Bill Haas.

That victory was enormous, as it got him into, among others, the 2011 PGA Championship and the 2012 Masters. His second title came at the 2012 True South Classic.

The Farmers Insurance Open title he won last weekend is another showcase of what happens when you work hard and work persistently on your golf game.

Stallings shot an opening-round 72 at Torrey Pines, while other golfers were hitting 66s and 65s, putting him almost double-digit strokes out of first place after 18 holes.

But he never had a bad round, hitting even par 72s on the longer South Course, and a 67 and a final round 68 on the shorter North Course to rally from three strokes back to the one-shot victory.
