Alex Aragon rallies for victory

MIDLAND, Texas -- Alex Aragon had a 6-under 66 and came from five shots back in the final round to win the WNB Golf Classic.

Aragon finished at 16-under 272, one better than Byron Smith (70) and three in front of Brice Garnett (71).

"This is sweet. It's a little sweeter in the sense that I feel I played a lot better to win this tournament," said Aragon, who won the TPC Stonebrae Championship this same week one year ago.

"Last year conditions took out half the field and you didn't have to play great the whole time. It validates the first one. It validates everything."

Will MacKenzie (72) tied for fourth place, four back along with third-round leader Edward Loar (75) and his playing partner Nick Flanagan (74).

Aragon was thrilled after finishing his day, though the 54-hole leaders were still an hour behind him.

"I really didn't miss a shot all day. It was unbelievable," he said. "I just putted great all day. I started out making everything. I was hitting it really close on the front nine, which isn't easy to do on a day like today. It was about as good as I can play."
