Martin Piller wins Web.com Tour's Boise Open
BOISE, Idaho (AP) Martin Piller completed a wire-to-wire victory Sunday in the Boise Open for his fourth career Web.com Tour title.
Piller shot a 4-under 67 at Hillcrest Country Club for a 28-under 256 total, the second-lowest 72-hole score in Web.com Tour history and the third-best mark in relation to par.
Steve Wheatcroft set the record of 255 in the 2011 Prince George's County Open, finishing at 29 under, and Daniel Chopra was 30 under on a par-72 course in the 2004 Henrico County Open.
Piller broke the tournament mark of 24-under 260 set last year by playoff winner Wheatcroft and Steven Alker. The 29-year-old Dallas player won by six strokes to tie the event record.
Piller earned $144,000 to jump from 52nd to fourth on the money list with $198,852, enough to earn a PGA Tour card next season. His wife, Gerina Piller, is an LPGA Tour player.
The former Texas A&M star opened with rounds of 61, 63 and 65 to break the 54-hole record at 189 and match the mark for relation to par at 24 under.
