Top 5 Moments from the Greenbrier Classic

Posted: Updated:
 The Greenbrier Classic is one of the most exciting events of the year in West Virginia and this year was no different.       

Here's a look at the top 5 moments from the week.

Number 5: John Daly's pants.

Daly's closet must be as colorful as a box of Lucky Charms.  Which may have been the theme for his bright green clover printed ones.  But, he didn't stop there.  You could spot him an mile away when he channeled his inner pink panther rocking the head-to-toe pink on pink get-up.  For America's birthday, he sported the stars and stripes making sure everyone knew he is 100% American.

Number 4: Livin' La Vida Lopez.

Actor and comedian George Lopez hit the links and brought the funny to the fairway.  He practiced his putt and signed autographs.  Who needs a reporter when Lopez and his caddy Michael Collins take over the 59 airways to hold their own interview. 

Number 3: Beards with attitude.

White Sulphur Springs got a taste of hollywood, or should I say, Louisiana.  Jase Robertson and Justin Martin of A&E's show Duck Dynasty took the Pro-Am by storm.  They weren't duck hunting but rather looking for birdies.  

Number 2: Hole-In-One payout.

Bud Cauley's ace on hole 18 meant one thing, money.   Greenbrier resort owner Jim Justice announced that for the first Hole-In-One on the 18th he would give everyone on the green and in the grandstands a $100 bill.  With a bag of money in hand, he came through on his promise.  So everyone on the green, saw the green.

Number 1- Cabrera captures the title.

The 2009 Masters champion Angel Cabrera was given another green jacket Sunday. After a great final round performance he finished 16 under par on the tournament landing him on the top of the leaderboard.  With the 5th winner of the Greeenbrier Classic named, the 2014 springhouse trophy found a new home
