On Other Tours: Barber wins first, Stiles take Tennessee, Blake wins in Washington

While Lydia Ko, Nick Watney and Paul Lawrie were winners on Sunday in their respective tournaments, three other players were crowned winners on major tours.

Here are a few quick recaps:

Web.com Tour: Darron Stiles picked up his fifth Web.com Tour win, taking the News Sentinel Open in Tennessee by one shot at Fox Den C.C. over three players, including Scott Gardiner, D.J. Brigman and Nicholas Thompson, at 18 under par.

A birdie at the 14th hole gave Stiles a lead he would not lose. It's the second time he has won this event, doing so a decade ago. Stiles had not won a tournament since the '06 Rheem Classic on the Web.com Tour.

John Daly finished in a four-way tie for sixth, three shots behind Stiles.

Champions Tour: Jay Don Blake is a winner on the Champions Tour, defeating Mark O'Meara with a birdie on the second hole of a sudden-death playoff at the Boeing Classic at TPC Snoqualmie Ridge in Snoqualmie, Wash. The pair finished regulation at 10 under through 54 holes.

For Blake, it is his third Champions Tour won - all coming in the last two seasons.

NGA Tour: Rookie Blayne Barber picked up his first professional win on Sunday, taking the ICE Recycling Environmental Classic on the NGA Tour at the Country Club of South Carolina. Barber posted a 23-under-par total in Florence to win in his second NGA Tour start by one over Andrew Loupe.

Barber, who turned pro this summer from Auburn, beat the LSU product in what may be a precursor to the college football season starting this week.
