Kyle Stanley was up three strokes with his ball in the middle of the 18th fairway at the Farmers Insurance Open yesterday when he completely collapsed.First he over-spun his approach shot off the green, down a slope, and into the water.

He still had a chance to make double bogey and win the tournament with a three-foot putt, but missed it.

He lost the playoff to Brendt Snedeker two holes later.

The Farmers people already had Stanley’s $1,080,000 first-place check written up. With the loss, his winnings went down to $648,000.

Stanley was up seven strokes on Snedeker at one point yesterday. Brutal way to lose.

Here are the highlights (fast forward to the 1:03 mark for the collapse):
