Angel Cabrera entered the final round in second place thanks to a pair or 68's on over the first two days and a 64 on Saturday that placed him in second place. Playing in the final group Sunday, the big hitting Argentine made three birdies on the front nine to vault up the leaderboard.
On the backside, Cabrera birdied 11 and 12 to take a one shot lead. Now on the 492-yard par four 13th, Cabrera unleashed a 308-yard drive right down the middle. From there Cabrera launched an 8 iron from 176 that found the bottom of the cup for an eagle two. Cabrera cruised to the finish line from there, carding a final round 6-under par 64 that gave Cabrera a two stroke victory at the Greenbrier Classic.
Cabrera relied on FJ ICON and StaSof en route to the victory.
Adding to his two major triumphs, this is Cabrera's third PGA Tour victory.

Fabrizio Zanotti survived a four man FJ playoff to capture the BMW International Open at Golf Club Gut Lärchenhof.As regulation play ended four players sat at 19-under par for the first 72 holes. Zanotti, who fired a final round 7-under par 65, faced off against Gregory Havret (DryJoys Casual), Rafael Cabrera Bello, world number two Henrik Stenson.
Each player split with par on the first sudden death hole. On the following hole Stenson (FJ ICON and Pure Touch Limited), Cabera Bello (D.N.A.), and Zanotti split with birdies. They followed suit the third time around by each birdieing again. On the fourth playoff hole Cabrera Bello's tee shot found the water and Zanotti and Stenson split with pars. Now playing the fifth playoff hole Stenson's tee shot found the water, he then pitched into a bunker and promptly conceded the victory to the 31 year old Paraguayan.
This week the FJ Apparel team was on location in Wisconsin with Steve Stricker shooting new layering images for an upcoming campaign.
Here are some behind the scenes shots of the action.
Kevin Streelman began the day four strokes back of the 54-hole lead and his front nine one over par total left him even further behind than when he started.
On the back nine Streelman put on a clinic, making seven straight birdies on the closing seven holes to streak to the top of the leaderboard and take a one stroke clubhouse lead. With a few groups behind him, Streelman would have to wait for his playing competitors to finish their rounds to see if his 15-under par total would hold up. No one could match, giving Streelman the victory.
Streelman relied on FJ Sport and SciFlex en route to the victory.
Streelman's seven straight birdies is now the PGA Tour record for consecutive closing birdies by a winner.
