Mahan failed to acquire enough points to make this year's Ryder Cup team, but this win will certainly put him in contention for a captain's pick. "To get a win in an event like this, and the timing that it was, it feels unbelievable," Mahan said after his round.

Six players held a share of the lead of Sunday, but it was Mahan's putting, especially on the back nine where he rolled in three straight birdies on 15 through 17, that helped him pull away from the field.
