>>Dann Lee Wins At Greenbrier in Playoff

Danny Lee parred the second playoff hole on Sunday to defeat David Hearn and win The Greenbrier Classic.

Lee (67) and Hearn (67) were joined at 13-under-par 267 by Robert Streb (65) and Kevin Kisner (64).

The foursome headed back to the par-3 18th. Streb and Kisner both knocked their tee shots over the green. Lee and Hearn found the putting surface and had similar lines as they did in regulation.

Kisner had a brutal lie in the rough and went right under his chip twice. After pitching on, he marked, but knew he was finished. Streb's chip ran by the hole as well.

 width=They were eliminated as Lee poured in an 18-footer for birdie. Hearn matched Lee from a few feet closer.

Lee and Hearn went back to the par-5 17th on the Old White TPC Course at The Greenbrier for the second extra hole. Both players hit their tee shots left.

Hearn hooked his second shot from the trees and it stopped in the grass on top of a fairway bunker. Lee laid up into the fairway, then hit his third to about 60 feet. Hearn chipped down the fairway, then saw his fourth land within feet of the cup, but it bounced off the back of the green.

Lee lagged his birdie chance within two feet. Hearn 2-putted from over the green for bogey, then Lee tapped in for par and the win.

Russell Henley fired a 7-under 63 to set the early clubhouse lead. Henley ended alone in fourth at 12-under-par 268.

Bryce Molder, who was one of four co-leaders entering the final round, closed with an even-par 70. He was joined in sixth at minus-11 by Chad Collins (69), Greg Owen (67), Andres Romero (67), James Hahn (66), Brendon Todd (68) and David Lingmerth (68).

Lee, Hearn, Hahn and Owen all qualified for the Open Championship.

Tiger Woods closed with a 3-under 67 to end at 7-under-par 273. The final round was Woods' best of the week as he hit 12-of-14 fairways and 15-of-18 greens in regulation in a bogey-free round.
