WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. -- Jonas Blixt wasn't having the best of seasons. He entered The Greenbrier Classic with just eight cuts made in 16 events.

How fortunes can change.

Blixt, 29, carded a final-round, 3-under 67 to make up a four-shot deficit over the final 18 holes to win The Greenbrier Classic by two strokes on Sunday, just minutes before the sun set behind the West Virginia mountains.

Blixt, who won for the first time on the PGA TOUR at last year's Frys.com Open, holed a key birdie on the 16th and two-putted from 45 feet on the par-3 18th for his second career victory. Blixt finished at 13 under and picked up 500 FedExCup points and earned an invitation to the Masters with his victory.

"Just so many dreams come true," he told CBS afterward. "Just one week and the whole year kind of turns around."

Afternoon thunderstroms delayed play for more than 3 hours Sunday afternoon. While the leaders didn't tee off until after 5 p.m. ET, the tournament was completed.

Jimmy Walker (71), Johnson Wagner (73), Matt Jones (68) and Steven Bowditch (68) tied for second place at 11 under.
