Badds makes good, wins FBR Open

Australian Aaron Baddeley claimed the lead on Sunday for his second TOUR victory at the FBR Open. Third round leader Jeff Quinney had a 3 stroke gap on the rest of the field, but went bogey-bogey on the 17th and 18th holes to fall to Badds. Baddeley finished the week at 21 under par.

Quinney was in control for most of Sunday's round, but missed a key put on the 15th that probably would have led him straight to victory. Despite Quinney's failure to convert key putts, Aaron Baddeley can remember winning this tournament, not Quinney losing it. Badds made the shots and the putts when they were needed most, ending with a spectacular shot on 18th while Quinney dumped his ball into a bunker on the drive and the approach shot.

The FBR Open nearly resulted in a playoff as John Rollins shot 63 to end his week at 20 under par. Rollins would have took the lead had he not found the drink coming down the stretch. Without a slight meltdown, Rollins could have fired a 60 in the clutch.

The final player in the last pairing on Sunday, Brett Quigley, had a disappointing day as he slowly drifted away from contention.

Aaron Baddeley is starting to find his stride on the PGA Tour. After winning the Verizon Heritage last year, Badds found his second win in his current home state. Quinney was not so lucky as the Arizona State graduate found no home court advantage on Sunday.
