WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS -

Swedish golfer Jonas Blixt won the Greenbrier Classic Sunday by two strokes.

Blixt shot a 3-under 67 following a 3 hour rain delay.

Blixt rose to the top after battling with 5 other golfers over the five final holes to grab up the $1.1 million dollar winner's check. With this win Blixt will also get to compete in the British Open and get a spot in next year's Masters.

Blixt was behind by 4 shots at the start of the final round and finished at 13 under. Johnson Wagner lead the third round with Australians Steven Bowditch and Matt Jones, and Jimmy Walker all tied up for second.

Blixt grabbed the lead with a 9-foot birdie putt on hole No. 16 and got his second PGA tour win with two pars.

Round 4 of The Greenbrier Classic was delayed by 3 hours because of rainstorms.
