SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - Kyle Stanley knew exactly how Spencer Levin felt. Taking advantage of Levins final-round meltdown, Stanley rebounded from a devastating loss to win the 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 dont want to wish that upon anybody. Hes 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 $1,098,000 for his first PGA Tour title. "You go from a very low point to a high point," Stanley said. "Im not sure I expected to maybe recover this quickly. ... I think the biggest challenge was seeing if I could put last week behind me. I think I did." Ben Crane had a 66 to finish a stroke back. Levin, six strokes ahead entering the round and seven in front after one hole, shot a 75 to finish two strokes behind Stanley. "It just wasnt my day, obviously," Levin said. "But I gave it away, simple as that. You have a six-shot lead and lose, you gave it away. My hats off to Kyle. He played a great round. He went and got it. But if youve got a six-shot lead and dont win, then I think its on the player with the lead, for sure." In tears seven days ago in San Diego after blowing the big lead -- dropping the final strokes with a triple-bogey 8 on the final hole -- and losing to Snedeker in a playoff, Stanley cried again Sunday -- this time tears of joy. "I just want to thank my mom and dad. Theyve done a lot for me. Im speechless," Stanley said in the scoring area moments after the victory. At Torrey Pines, Stanley led by seven shots early in the final round, and still had a four-shot lead as he stood on the tee at the par-5 18th. But his third shot had too much spin and didnt get high enough on the green, spinning down the slope and into the water. He three-putted from 45 feet for the triple bogey, then lost to Snedeker on the second playoff hole when his 5-foot par putt caught the right edge of the cup. "Im never going to forget that," Stanley said. "But I think it makes this one a lot sweeter, just being able to bounce back. Im kind of at a loss for words. Im very grateful for the support Ive gotten. Its unbelievable. Unbelievable turnaround." The 24-year-old Stanley, one of the tours longest hitters at only 5-foot-11 and 165 pounds, birdied the par-5 13th and par-4 14th to take a one-stroke lead at 15 under. On No. 13, the bearded former Clemson star powered a 376-yard drive just through the desert area to set up the tying two-putt birdie. "Got a really good break there, not quite sure how that ball ended up where it did," Stanley said. "We only hit 9-iron in there." On 14, he hit a 325-yard drive down the middle and holed a 12-footer to take lead. "Kind of a chip wedge in there," he said. Levin, winless on the PGA Tour, birdied the 14th to regain a share of the lead, but dropped back with a double-bogey 7 on the par-5 15th. "I just didnt have it," Levin said. "Maybe I was looking ahead too much and trying too hard. What are you going to do? I tried my best." On 15, Levins drive bounced off the cart path on the right and ended up against cactus in the desert area. He took an awkward stance near the cactus and got the ball back into the second cut just off the fairway with a hockey-style shot with his driver. After his caddie removed pieces of the cactus from Levins shirt and pants, the fiery chain-smoker hit his third shot in the water short and right of the green. "I pushed it a little bit, but I guess I didnt hit enough club," Levin said. "I thought 4-iron would go over the green and 5-iron didnt carry." Stanley, playing two groups ahead of Levin, parred the final three holes, playing a great recovery shot from under cactus to the right of the short par-4 17th. He birdied Nos. 2, 3, 8, 9 and 11 to get to 13 under, and within three strokes of the faltering Levin. Levin birdied No. 4 to reach 18 under, but bogeyed Nos. 4 and 6 and dropped two more strokes on Nos. 11 and 12 to let Stanley into the mix. Stanley, though, wasnt fully aware where he stood. "I didnt pay much attention to the leaderboards until maybe four or five holes left," Stanley said. "Once I made a couple birdies there on the back nine, I figured I was maybe getting close. But I didnt really think about it too much today. I made the mistake of thinking about it probably all of the final round last week. So, this week, I just kind of tried to just let it happen." D.J. Trahan had a 66 to finish fourth at 12 under, and Brendan Steele (64) was another stroke back along with Kevin Na (65) and Bubba Watson (70). Graham DeLaet (71) of Weyburn, Sask., finished in a tie for 55th at 1 under, while David Hearn (74) of Brantford, Ont., was in a tie for 65th at 1 over. DIVOTS: The crowd was announced at 58,447, bringing the seven-day total to 518,262. A tournament-record 173,210 watched play Saturday. The tournament record for a week of 538,356 was set in 2008. ... Phil Mickelson shot a 73 to tie for 26th at 6 under. "I just couldnt quite get it going," the former Arizona State star said. ... Mark Wilson, the 2011 winner, closed with a 64 to tie for 19th at 7 under. Tyler Seguin Jersey

The back-and-forth thriller featured eight lead changes, none more unlikely than Ross Evans splitting the uprights from 27 yards out to give the Horned Frogs a 48-47 edge after they trailed by 24 entering the final 15 minutes. Robert Griffin III had one last drive in him, however, as the quarterback led the Bears (1-0) into field goal range with an 11-play, 60-yard march in the final 4 1/2 minutes. "Thats a big-time [drive]. Thats not easy to do when you have zero momentum," Baylor head coach Art Briles said. "Our guys really just kept fighting, kept believing and persevered." Jones, who earlier had missed two extra points, connected on a 37-yarder with 1:04 to play. Mike Hickss interception in the final seconds sealed the memorable win, Baylors first over a ranked opponent since 2004. "It was kind of tense, really. [But] I felt relaxed, I felt good and confident in my team, the field goal unit and confident in myself," Jones said. Griffin torched a usually stout TCU defense for 359 yards and five touchdowns, hitting Kendall Wright 12 times for 189 yards and two scores. Wright even threw a touchdown to Terrance Williams, whose 42-yard hookup with Griffin gave the Bears a seemingly comfortable 47-23 lead with 6:10 remaining in the third quarter. Casey Pachall, tasked with replacing the winningest quarterback in TCU history in Andy Dalton, nearly pulled off a remarkable comeback by throwing three of his four TDs in the fourth quarter while converting a pair of two-point tries. "I was very happy with what [Pachall] did. I was very happy with the offense as a whole. They put up 38 points against a Big 12 defense," TCU head coach Gary Patterson said. His 19-yard connection with David Porter pulled TCU within 47-45 with 7:11 on the clock. The two-point conversion failed, but Griffin fumbled on the first play of the next possession, leading to Evans go-ahead field goal with 4:27 showing. After two incompletions to start the ensuing drive, Griffin and Wright switched roles, as the quarterback hauled in a 15-yard pass over the middle to move the chains on a double pass. Three first downs moved the ball to the TCU 26-yard line, and after Terrance Ganaway gained six yards on three rushes, Jones came in and kicked the game- winner. Pachall completed four straight passes to move into Baylor territory with time winding down, but his forced attempted into double coverage was brought in by Hicks, who fell to the ground with two seconds to play, effectively ending the roller coaster affair. The Horned Frogs led the nation in defense the previous three seasons. They allowed 12 points per game and 228 yards of total offense en route to a 13-0 campaign last year, including a Rose Bowl win over Big Ten champ Wisconsin. The Bears, though, exceeded those numbers by the end of the first quarter just one year after getting dismantled, 45-10, by its intra-state rivaal.dddddddddddd Baylor, which ended a 16-year bowl drought by making it to the Texas Bowl last season, opened the scoring with a trick play, as Wright caught a screen pass behind Griffin and lobbed a 40-yard TD to an uncovered Williams just 2:17 into the game. Greg McCoys ensuing kickoff return of 73 yards set up Pachalls nine-yard run to paydirt. Though the extra point was blocked, TCU went ahead on Matthew Tuckers four-yard touchdown run with 5:46 remaining in the opening stanza. Baylor answered right back with Griffin finding Wright in the right corner of the end zone for a 35-yard score off a play-action fake. Evans booted a 44-yard field goal to cap a flurry of first-quarter scoring that continued in the second with Wright and Logan Brock trading respective 28 and 23-yard touchdown catches in the first three minutes. Darius Jones 55-yard kickoff return gave Baylor good field position, and on the third play of the drive, Griffin hit Jordan Najvar for a 14-yard score. Jones ensuing point after was blocked. After Evans missed a 41-yard field goal, Ganaway ended an eight-play, 76-yard drive with a two-yard run up the middle off a direct snap, giving the hosts a 34-23 lead at halftime. Evans was wide right on another 41-yard attempt on the first possession of the third quarter. The errant kick came after a chop blocking penalty negated a gain that had moved TCU inside Baylors five-yard line. While McCoy set up several scores with 229 kick return yards, the speedster was beaten down the left sideline by Lanear Sampson en route to a 64-yard score on a perfectly-thrown ball by Griffin with 8:49 left in the third. Jones missed the extra point, but it took little away from Baylors momentum. Following a three-and-out, Griffin quickly struck again, hitting Williams for a 42-yard TD over the middle for a 47-23 advantage. "We played so badly on defense, especially at the corner position, that we just couldnt overcome it. Youve got to give Baylor all the credit, and youve got to understand that they did a great job," Patterson said. The Horned Frogs went down swinging, as Pachall connected with Brock in the end zone on 4th-and-goal from the one in the opening minute of the fourth. Pachall ran in the two-point try, then found Josh Boyce for a nine-yard TD a little more than three minutes later, cutting the deficit to 47-39 following another successful two-point completion.
