Check out the top 10 moments from A Military Tribute at the Greenbrier Classic including Xander Schauffele's first career PGA TOUR victory and Stuart Appleby's historic final-round 59.

From Tony Finau’s perspective, it’s not a matter of it. Just when.

It’s been more than two years since the big-hitting Finau broke through with his first PGA TOUR win, beating Steve Marino in a playoff at the Puerto Rico Open. Given his length off the tee and the continued development of other parts of his game, it seemed only a matter of time until his second win.

This week’s event, a Military Tribute at The Greenbrier, will be his 65th start since that first victory. Finau has 15 top-10 finishes, including a pair of runner-ups this season, but he’s still waiting for that second victory. No need to press the urgency button, though.

Decisions by most of the world's elite golfers to skip the PGA Tour's stop in West Virginia have been a boost for younger players like Xander Schauffele.

Schauffele had a one-stroke victory over Robert Streb at The Greenbrier resort last season, which ended with the 24-year-old from San Diego winning the Tour Championship and earning Rookie of the Year honors.

This year, nearly all of the two dozen rookies on the tour are in the field at A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier, which starts Thursday on the Old White TPC in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia.

Jordan Spieth's victory celebration after winning the 2017 Travelers Championship was just as entertaining as the shot itself. A celebratory display like that could be considered one best golf celebrations of all-time. Here are seven more of the best golf celebrations through the years:

James Hahn, 2013 Waste Management Phoenix Open

Although Phil Mickelson would go on to win this tournament, Jordan Hahn's recreation of the dance craze Gangnam Style after he birdies the 16th hole in the final round at the Briarwood Golf Club deserves a trophy of its own.


 

Xander Schauffele opened the Travelers Championship with a 3-under 67 using TaylorMade P750 irons. But it was the set he didn't have in play that had equipment enthusiasts talking this week.

Greg Moore, GolfWRX's roving photographer, managed to snap photos of an unreleased set of Callaway prototype irons in Schauffele's bag on Wednesday.

Normally a set of iron on TOUR is a heavy-handed hint that something new is in the retail pipeline. Only this particular cavity-back iron comes on the heels of Callaway's release of Epic Pro and an updated X Forged that both fit the requirements of a better player or professional.

Even more curious was the fact that Schauffele was the only player in the field at TPC River Highlands testing the iron.

So what's the deal with the prototype?

Any list that dives into the "greatest" at anything is sure to spark a debate.

Who's on the list and at what number? That's fine, even healthy, in fact. Ranking lists are, after all, a subjective matter.When it comes to a list ranking the greatest golfers of all time, there are so many factors that come into play.
