Former Boise State golfer Graham DeLaet shot a 4-under 68 on Sunday and finished in a tie for second place at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines in San Diego, Calif.

DeLaet finished 8-under for the tournament to tie K.J. Choi, Jason Day, Pat Perez and Marc Leishman.

Scott Stallings was in the 18th fairway at Torrey Pines, 222 yards from the front of the green, needing a birdie to give himself a shot at outright victory . That’s when his caddie told him, “Let’s see what you’ve got.”

Stallings hammered a 4-iron that narrowly cleared the water and set up two putts from 40 feet for a birdie. It gave him a 4-under 68 and a one-shot lead that turned into a victory when no one could catch him.

His final birdie capped off a wild day at Torrey Pines, one that didn’t include Tiger Woods or Phil Mickelson for the first time in two decades.
