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

    Day five of the New Orleans Saints training camp at the Greenbrier brought much different temperatures than the Saints are used to at their home site in Louisiana.Long sleeves, long pants, and even some jackets could be spotted at training camp. Not your typical summer day in West Virginia with unseasonal highs for this time of year, and far from what the Saints are used to."When you start to sweat and then the wind blows you're like, oh we aren't in Louisiana are we? There's a little bit of ...

    It was the second day of practice with pads and through there's still no full contact, the addition brings a level of intensity."It's always a little different to come out here and hit, but that's how you have to prepare for football.

Some competing for a spot on the roster, others for a starting job."It's definitely a competition, I mean we are both...
