2012 Waste Management Phoenix Open Final Results: Spencer Levin Falters, Kyle Stanley Finishes Strong To Win

Just a week ago, Kyle Stanley was just a day removed from a huge meltdown that cost him a win. He blew a three-shot lead on the final hole to eventually lose on the tie-break. This week at the TPC Scottsdale, he came into the final round of play tied for fifth place, while Spencer Levin had a commanding six-stroke lead.

This week, Stanley was on the other end of the picture. He charged hard and played a great final round, while Levin fell apart. Stanley shot a -6 65 on the day to finish the tournament -15 to give him a one-shot win over Ben Crane to become the 2012 champ.

Stanley did not bogey a single hole and had six birdies on the day.

Where Stanley stood a week ago, Levin stands now, although his meltdown did not come on the last hole. It was throughout the day. He had four bogeys and a double bogey, finishing the round four-over par. He finished in third place, two shots back.

The two biggest names in the tourney -- Phil Mickelson and Rickie Fowler -- finished tied for 26th with a -6 for the weekend.
