Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

"Brian Stuard" in now trending on Twitter higher than "Bobby Night," which seems like a win for everyone involved.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Like many of us, Brian Stuard didn't make a single bogey this weekend. Unlike the rest of us, he actually played golf.

Jason Sobel ESPN Senior Writer 

After being shortened to 54 holes due to weather delays, the Zurich Classic needed another two in a playoff to determine a champion. Brian Stuard withstood Jamie Lovemark and Byeong-Hun An for a first career PGA Tour victory that comes with a two-year exemption, seven-figure paycheck and invitation to next year's Masters Tournament.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Brian Stuard on the win: "Playing out of the 125-150 category and then winning this week, that makes this year and next year easy, I guess."

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Brian Stuard is your Zurich Classic champion, his first career PGA Tour victory. He'll now play in the 2017 Masters for the first time, too.

John Buccigross @Buccigross

Life changing win for Brian Stuard in New Orleans. Oakland University grad. Never stop believing in yourself.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Re: Last tweet. Yes, Ben An won on Euro Tour. Yes, that win at Wentworth was bigger than this. And yes, I was only talking PGA Tour wins.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

The Zurich Classic will NOT be decided in 54 holes. A 3-man playoff between Jamie Lovemark, Brian Stuard, and Byeong-Hun An is about to start. Looking at the radar, I'd recommend a winner be crowned quickly.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Zurich Classic heading to a playoff: Jamie Lovemark, Byeong-Hun An and Brian Stuard. Somebody's getting a first career win today.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

First rule of golf, kids: Never leave a birdie putt to win your first PGA Tour title short. Jamie Lovemark just broke that rule.
