WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. -- Jonas Blixt wasn't having the type of year he had envisioned -- until the final round of the Greenbrier Classic came along.
The Swede shot a three-under 67 Sunday to win the rain-delayed tournament by two strokes.
Blixt emerged from a five-player chase over the final five holes to pick up the $1.1-million winner's cheque. He also shot from 139th to 39th in the Fed-Ex Cup points standings.
"This is what I play for," Blixt said. "I play to win. It just confirms that if you do the right things, if you work hard, dreams can come true."
Among the perks for his victory are a spot in next year's Masters.
Blixt also will move to around No. 50 in the next world ranking, which is used as the alternate list -- from which about eight will be selected -- to fill the field for this month's British Open.
