we’re going to have a chance.’ I stuck with him all throughout the day, and he did an incredible job.” He rallied with four birdies on the first five


holes on the inward nine, and then hit a 103-yard wedge within a foot of the hole on the par-4 16th to move to 10-under before getting into trouble when he drove into a water hazard and bogeyed the par-5 17th. But he righted himself by making a five-footer for a birdie on No. 18. After signing his scorecard, Stallings eschewed the customary cart ride to the tee for the playoff, electing to run instead.


“Running from the back of the green to the


tee to go to the playoff is something I’ll never forget,” he said. “I’ve been working with a trainer for about a month, so he should be proud.” Maybe he should get an award for the “Best


Sprint of the Year.” The playoff loss was difficult for Estes, who was coming back from a wrist injury which limited his play earlier in the season. “I felt like I did everything exactly right,” Estes said. “I just didn’t make the birdie putt on 18.” ■

Among the distinguished contributions for which The Greenbrier is known, the facility is perhaps most proud of its longstanding history of social responsibility through many and varied gifts to local, state and national charities. Through its Badges for Charity program, more than 100 non- profit organizations will receive 30 percent of the proceeds of each weekly badge sale. The Badges for Charity program will generate hundreds of thousands of dollars for organizations in West Virginia, Virginia and across the country. The Greenbrier Classic will have a tremendous impact on its communities, and these contributions are expected to resonate for years to come.

The Old White TPC The Greenbrier, one of America’s most esteemed hotels, has a long golf history. Its four 18-hole courses are The Greenbrier, designed by Seth Raynor and renovated by Jack Nicklaus, The Old White TPC, The Meadows and The Snead (its private resident’s-only course). The Greenbrier Classic is played on The


Old White TPC course. It was named for the Old White Hotel, which welcomed guests from 1858 to 1922. The course was designed by Charles Blair Macdonald, who modeled several holes from some of the most famous holes in Scotland. For example, the Old White’s No. 8 hole was styled after the Redan at North Berwick, No. 13 after the Alps at Prestwick, and No. 15 after the Eden hole at the Old Course at St. Andrews.
