DAVIDSON, N.C. (AP) Adam Hadwin won the Chiquita Classic on Sunday to jump from fourth to second on the money list after the second of four events in the Web.com Tour Finals.

The 26-year-old Canadian, the Chile Classic winner in March, closed with a 4-under 68 for a two-stroke victory over John Peterson. Hadwin finished at 18-under 270 at River Run.

Hadwin earned $180,000 to push his season total to $473,667. He wrapped a PGA Tour card with his fourth-place finish on the regular-season money list and is competing with the other top-25 players for PGA Tour priority, with the final leader getting a spot in The Players Championship.

Nos. 126-200 in the FedEx Cup standings and Nos. 26-75 from the Web.com Tour's regular-season money list are playing for 25 PGA Tour cards based on their earnings in the four tournaments.

Peterson shot a 68. He earned $108,000 and has made $127,600 in the first two Web.com Tour Finals events, more than enough to regain his PGA Tour card after finishing 179th in the FedEx Cup standings.

Third-round leader Greg Chalmer had a 75 to drop into a tie for eighth at 12 under. The 40-year-old Australian was finished 132nd in the FedEx Cup standings.
