Jonas Blixt endured a lengthy
weather delay on Sunday and fired a 3-under 67 to win the Greenbrier Classic
as darkness descended.

Entering the final round four strokes behind overnight leader Johnson Wagner,
Blixt finally teed off just after 5 p.m. ET after rain halted play at the Old
White TPC Course for three-plus hours.

When the skies cleared, Blixt countered five birdies against two bogeys in
fading light, taking the lead for good with a birdie at the par-4 16th. The
29-year-old Swede parred his final two holes and finished the tournament at
13-under-par 267 for his second PGA Tour win in his 38th start.

Wagner carded a 73 and suffered his first loss on Tour when holding the 54-
hole lead. He finished in second place alongside Jimmy Walker (71), Matt Jones
(68) and Steven Bowditch (68) at 11-under.

While he failed to secure his fourth PGA Tour win, Wagner did snap out of a
recent slump which saw him post six missed cuts and a withdrawal in his
previous seven events.

Defending champion Ted Potter, Jr. shot 67 and tied for sixth with Brian
Stuard (67) and Pat Perez (69) at minus-9.
