This week: The Greenbrier Classic, Thursday through Sunday, The Old White TPC, White Sulphur Springs, W.Va.

Stanley’s fourth-round score: 4-under-par 66.

Position: Stanley (8-under 272) finished tied for eighth, two strokes behind winner Scott Stallings (270). Gonzales (3-over 143) missed the cut, and Putnam withdrew midway through his second round Friday.

Recap: Lots of good came out of a great week, and a furious finish Sunday for the Bellarmine Prep graduate. He now has two top-10 finishes in his past three appearances. He moved into the top 40 in the FedEx Cup playoff standings, which means he will be around at least two of those events. And he easily cracked the $1 million level in season earnings. Stanley posted back-nine eagles on both par-5 holes from off the green – the 12th (12-foot chip-in) and 17th (33-foot putt from behind the green), then hit his 9-iron tee shot on the finishing hole just right of the cup, and he sank a 10-footer for a final birdie.

Next for Stanley: Reno-Tahoe Open starting Thursday at Montreux Golf and Country Club in Reno, Nev.
