Stadler Edges Watson to Win WM Phoenix Open

(SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.) -- Kevin Stadler has finally won on the PGA Tour.

The 33-year-old son of former PGA great Craig Stadler won the Waste Management Phoenix Open Sunday when Bubba Watson missed a five-foot putt on the 18th that would have sent the tournament into a playoff.

"I was a little weird way to win a golf tournament," Stadler said. "I fully expected him to make the putt. I would have rather made mine to win it."

Stadler finished the day shooting a 3-under 68, giving him a one-stroke victory over Watson and Graham DeLaet.

The win means that Stadler qualifies to play in the upcoming Masters, meaning he and his dad will become the first ever father-son combination to play in the same Masters.

Stadler earns his first win in 239 career PGA Tour starts and finishes the four-day tournament shooting a 16-under 268.
