Kyle Stanley shoots a 6-under, 65 and wins his first PGA TOUR event.
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.-- Kyle Stanley knew exactly how Spencer Levin felt.
Taking advantage of Levin's final-round meltdown, Stanley rebounded from a devastating loss to win the Waste Management Phoenix Open on Sunday, overcoming an eight-stroke deficit in a comeback as unlikely as his collapse last week at Torrey Pines.
"I really feel for him, experiencing that," Stanley said about Levin, echoing what Brandt Snedeker said about Stanley last week.
"You don't want to wish that upon anybody. He's a very good player. Way too good of a player to not bounce back or recover."
Stanley closed with a bogey-free 6-under 65, holing a 4-foot par putt on the par-4 18th to finish at 15-under 269. He earned 500 FedExCup points, enough to put him atop the latest standings, and $1,098,000 for his first PGA TOUR title.
