MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Brian Gay played his way into the U.S. Open in his last possible chance, winning the St. Jude Classic in wire-to-wire fashion.

Gay earned his berth at Bethpage Black with his second win in his last five events and third of his career. He beat David Toms and Bryce Molder by five strokes Sunday to grab the Open exemption as a multiple winner in the last calendar year.

He grabbed the $1,008,000 winner's check in runaway style, too.

Gay led by only a stroke after each of the first three rounds, then shot a third straight 4-under 66 to pull away. He birdied three of the first six holes to take all the suspense out of the final round.
