SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- And then they were tied.
Kyle Stanley, who lost a five-stroke lead in the final round of last week's Farmers Insurance Open, has just pulled even with Spencer Levin, who was leading by six at the start of Sunday's play at the Waste Management Phoenix Open.
Stanley two-putted for birdie at the 13th hole after a massive 376-yard drive. Levin, on the other hand, was in the process of making his second straight bogey -- each time failing to get up and down from a greenside bunker.
Stanley and Levin are 14 under while Ben Crane is a shot back along with PGA TOUR rookie John Huh.
The last player to lose in a playoff and win the following week is David Toms. Toms lost to K.J. Choi at last year’s PLAYERS Championship and then won the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial seven days later.
