Stanley's victory came at the expense of Spencer Levin who shot 4 over par on the final day to lose his lead. Errant drives down the stretch led to his demise. One of his drives went into a cactus bush in which he used his putter to remove his ball. He received a thorn in his side for his effort, only to have his next shot come up short of the green and land in a water hazard.
The Waste Management Open boasts one of the most entertaining tournaments year in and year out. With the famed Stadium Hole, number 16—a par 3 that is entirely enclosed inside of a stadium—the result is loud cheers for good shots and even louder boos for shots that are not so fortunate.
