Appleby wins the Greenbrier Classic

Australian Stuart Appleby has won the inaugural Greenbrier Classic to beat Jeff Overton by one stroke.

His 59 round was only s the fifth in PGA Tour History, but the second in four weeks: Paul Gaydos shot 59 at the John Deere Classic

Appleby trailed Overton by seven shots at the start of the day. His round included 9 birdies and an eagle. Three of his birdies on the last three holes which he putted from 15, 10 and 11 feet.

He narrowly avoided a play-off with Overton, who just missed a birdied putt on the 18th.

His 11 under final round put him 22 under for the tournament, and Overton who shot a final round of 67, 21 under.

It is his Appleby’s first victory in four years, when he won the 2006 Houston Open. Since then he has played 110 tournaments. He has played for 11 straight weeks now and will play again at next week’s Bridgestone Invitational in Akron, Ohio.

"I was quite comfortable," Appleby said. "It's not a nerve-racking thing to be involved in. I had a lot of opportunities and I made them. It was great to do that to win the tournament."

Brendon de Jonge finished in third place at 17 under.
