Farmers Insurance Open 2012 Final Results: Kyle Stanley Falls Apart, Brandt Snedeker Wins In Playoff

The 2012 Farmers Insurance Open in La Jolla ended in dramatic fashion on Sunday afternoon. Kyle Stanley, who entered the final day of play with a five-stroke lead and at one point on Sunday led by seven, collapsed on the 18th hole and lost the eventual playoff against Brandt Snedeker, who took home the trophy.

Snedeker entered the final day in second place, six strokes behind Stanley as the golfers teed off on Sunday. Stanley still held a four-stroke lead when teeing off on the 18th hole, but lost a ball in the water and triple-putted to a triple-bogey and an 8 on the hole, leading to a playoff against Snedeker.

Stanley three-putted again on the second playoff hole, including missing a five-foot putt. As a result, Snedeker won the tournament, the second time he has won a PGA Tour event by overcoming a five-stroke deficit. Here are the highlights from Stanley's collapse and Snedeker's victory.
