Stefani fires 64 to win Midwest Classic
Stefani began the day in a tie for 13th place, four shots off the lead. But he
turned in a flawless round at Nicklaus Golf Club at LionsGate, carding seven
birdies — including five on the back nine.
That put him at 17-under-par 267, and nobody else matched the score.
Luke List (67) and Russell Henley (68) shared second place at minus-15.
Third-round leader Matt Weibring began his round with a double bogey, and
seemingly rebounded when he made the turn at 17-under after draining five
However, he bogeyed four of five holes from the 11th to fall out of
contention. Weibring carded an even-par 71 and tied for fourth, at minus-14
James Nitties, the 2011 champion, also struggled, though his bogeys came right
after or before birdies. He carded a 2-over 73 to end at 11-under, good enough
for a share of 11th.
