Meanwhile, Andrew Landry won the event for his first PGA Tour victory.

A final-round 69 marked a career-best finish for Mullinax, who is playing this season on conditional status and whose lone prior top-10 this season came after he Monday qualified for the Valspar Championship.

"It took a lot of hard work to get to this point", Landry said.

Ravens out on Dez Bryant after signing Willie Snead
The Saints pried Meredith away from the Bears in a similar fashion to the Ravens taking Snead from the Saints. Snead averaged 939 yards and 3.5 touchdowns during his first two seasons with New Orleans.

Landry's first putt rolled an uncomfortable eight feet past the cup but, after Mullinax missed his effort for birdie, Landry's par putt dropped in the centre to ensure his first PGA Tour win at the age of 30. However, he chunked his second shot on the short par-4 17th into a greenside bunker and eventually bogeyed to fall two shots off the pace with just one hole to play.

Walker ended the week in outright fourth on 14 under and one shot ahead of two-time victor Zach Johnson, who ran up a scrappy six at the last to complete a disappointing 72.

Jimmy Walker finished in fourth place on 14 under after a final round 67, while a disappointing even par 72 saw Johnson claim fifth position on 13-under par.

"I didn't hit that great a wedge shot", Landry said of his approach.

"It's awesome. It's a lot of fun to be standing among the best players in the world on that leaderboard", Niemann said. He earned his tour card a year ago on the Web.com Tour, and lost a playoff to Jon Rahm in January in the CareerBuilder Challenge. "Just try to keep it up and hope to play well for the next weeks".
