Grayson Murray claims first PGA Tour title at Barbasol Championship

OPELIKA, Ala. (AP) — Rookie Grayson Murray won the Barbasol Championship on Sunday for his first PGA Tour title, holing a 5-foot par putt on the final hole for a one-stroke victory.

Murray closed with a 3-under 68 to edge Chad Collins on Grand National's Lake Course. The 23-year-old former Wake Forest and Arizona State player set up the winning par with a nearly 50-foot putt from below the hole. He finished at 21-under 263.

Collins closed with a 68 two days after posting one of the tournament's two rounds of 60. A tap-in for par on No. 18 left him waiting to see if Murray would stumble.

Brian Gay had a 65 to tie for third at 19 under with third-round leader Scott Stallings (71) and Tag Ridings (69). Stallings shot 60 on Saturday.

Amateur Sam Burns of LSU tied for sixth at 18 under after a 66.
