A week after his historic collapse at the Farmers Insurance Open, Stanley started the day eight strokes off the lead. He got off to a good start with consecutive birdies starting at par-4 second hole and when he added a birdie at the par-4 eighth he was four strokes off the lead. On the back nine, Stanley went on a run of three birdies in four holes starting at the par-4 11th, which earned him a one-stroke lead. He was soon tied for the lead after Spencer Levin made a 13-foot birdie putt at the par-4 14th, but on the par-5 15th a poor teeshot by Levin resulted in a double-bogey.
Playing partner Ben Crane pulled within a stroke of the lead by the final hole, however Stanley got a free drop from the tents after his wild teeshot and he was able to scramble for a two-putt par for the victory. The improbable comeback is the first career victory for Stanley, plus he has earned spots in the Masters, WGC-Bridgestone and the PGA Championship.
