SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. —

Stallings won Sunday in San Diego for his third tour title. “That venue and that event was very special and a huge stepping stone in my career,” he said.

Stallings is getting over an illness that also hit his wife and son.

“Honestly, if you asked me yesterday, I’d say there is no way I’m playing in the tournament,” he said. “The Mayo Clinic and the tournament got me hooked up with some good doctors and nurses, all kind of IVs and fluid and stuff like that. I’m a completely different person than I was yesterday.”

Patrick Reed is coming off a victory two weeks ago in California in the Humana Challenge. Riding a self-described “putting coma” at La Quinta, Reed opened with three straight 9-under 63s and closed with a 71 for a two-stroke victory.
