Graham DeLaet of Canada started slowly and finished with two birdies for a 69 to finish alone in third and lock up a spot on his first Presidents Cup team for the International squad.

Garcia had a two-shot lead at the start of the final round and gave it away quickly, starting with a three-putt for bogey on the par-5 second hole. He missed several short putts and went out in 39, falling too far back to catch up.

Stenson, who hit his second shot into the hazard on the second hole to make bogey, atoned for that mistake with three straight birdies to take the lead, and he kept the mistakes to a minimum on the back nine.

Stricker was two shots behind and had a long eagle putt on the 18th. Behind him, Stenson hit his approach into the bunker on the 17th. Right when the tournament was in doubt, Stenson holed the bunker shot to effectively wrap up the win.

“I’m really pleased with how I bounced back,” Stenson said.

He was talking about his early bogey, but he could have been talking about his career. The big Swede already made one great comeback to reach No. 5 in the world. He was outside the top 200 and his game in disarray at the start of the 2012 season. But he pulled himself out of another slump, and this win took him to No. 6 in the world ranking.
