SCOTTSDALE, AZ (CBS5/AP) -

Kevin Stadler won the Phoenix Open on Sunday for his first PGA Tour title when playing partner Bubba Watson missed a 5-footer for par on the final hole.

Stadler, the 33-year-old son of PGA Tour winner Craig Stadler, closed with a 3-under 68 for a one-stroke victory over Watson and Canadian Graham DeLaet.

Stadler won in his 239th PGA Tour start, earning a spot in the Masters, a tournament his father won in 1982. The Stadlers are the ninth father-son winners in tour history.

Stadler finished at 16-under 268 at TPC Scottsdale. Raised in Colorado, he played in Denver Broncos colors, wearing an orange shirt and blue pants and hat.

Watson shot a 71, and DeLaet had a 65.

On Saturday, the tournament set an all-time, single-day record. An estimated 189,722 golf fans showed up for the third round.   

The previous single-day attendance mark of 179,022 was set last year also during the third round.

It marked the third consecutive year that the tournament has set an attendance record during the third round.
