Rookie Grayson Murray gets first PGA Tour win

OPELIKA, Ala. — Grayson Murray unhappily found himself with a couple of extra days to prepare for the Barbasol Championship — and ended up with a breakthrough victory.

After missing the cut last week in the John Deere Classic, the rookie won his first PGA Tour title Sunday. He holed a 5-foot par putt on No. 18 for 3-under 68 and a one-stroke victory at 21-under 263, a tournament record.

"I was in control," Murray said. "I didn't get out of my game plan once."

Chad Collins closed with 68 to finish second, two days after posting one of the tournament's two rounds of 60. Among the three tied for third at 19 was third-round leader Scott Stallings, who shot 71 a day after shooting the other 60.

LPGA: In-Kyung Kim shot 8-under 63 for a four-stroke victory over Lexi Thompson (66) at 21-under 263 in the Marathon Classic at Sylvania, Ohio. Kim became the second two-time winner on the tour this season, joining So Yeon Ryu. Third-round leader Nellie Korda shot 74 to tie for eighth at 12 under in a group of five that included Seminole's Brittany Lincicome (70).
