SAN DIEGO (AP) - Scott Stallings made birdie on the par-5 18th hole at Torrey Pines to win the Farmers Insurance Open on Sunday.

Stalling was three shots behind going into the final round, and one of eight players who had a chance in the final hour of the tournament. He narrowly cleared the water with his second shot on the 18th and easily got up-and-down for a 4-under 68.

Gary Woodland appeared to have the best chance to catch him until he hooked his drive into a canyon on the 17th and made double bogey.

Stallings won for the third time in his career and earned a spot in the Masters. He also will move high enough in the world ranking that he likely earned a spot in the Match Play Championship next month.
