Video: Kyle Stanley's remarkable rally

For a second straight week, a golfer collapsed down the stretch of a PGA Tour event. Amazingly, last week's victim was this week's benefactor.

Kyle Stanley started the final round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open trailing by eight shots, but a 66 combined with 54-hole leader Spencer Levin's 75 added up to his first tour win. More importantly for the rising star, it washed the bad taste out of his mouth from a final-hole meltdown at Torrey Pines the week before. Here are the highlights from this remarkable turnaround:

Now it's Spencer Levin who is left winless after two close calls (He also lost in a playoff at the Mayakoba Classic last year). Getting over blowing a seven-shot lead on a Sunday will be hard, but as we saw yesterday, it doesn't have to take long.
