MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Ben Crane won the St. Jude Classic by a stroke Sunday for his first PGA Tour title since 2011 despite closing with a 3-over 73.
    
Crane went wire to wire for his fifth career victory. He played 30 holes on the last day because of rain delays at TPC Southwind. He finished the final 12 holes of his third round in the morning to lead by three shots entering the final round. He two-putted for bogey on the final hole to win.
    
Crane had a 270 total, with Troy Merritt (71) at 271. Webb Simpson (65), Matt Every (70) and Carl Pettersson (69) were at 272. Ian Poulter (64) was among four at 273.
    
Phil Mickelson, among those tuning up for the U.S. Open at Pinehurst, left winless in his 20th event since the British Open. He tied for 11th after a 72.
