FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) Sweden's Henrik Norlander won the Web.com Tour Finals-opening Hotel Fitness Championship on Sunday to wrap up a PGA Tour card.

Norlander shot a course-record 10-under 62 at Sycamore Hills to beat Michael Thompson and third-round leader D.H. Lee by three strokes. The 28-year-old former Augusta State player finished at 19-under 269 and earned $180,000 after finishing 47th on the Web.com Tour's regular-season money list.

Thompson closed with a 65, and Lee had a 71.

The four-event series features the top 75 players from the Web.com Tour money list, Nos. 126-200 from the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup standings and non-members of the tour who earned enough money to have placed in the top 200 had they been eligible to receive points.

The top 25 players on Web.com regular-season money list earned PGA Tour cards. They are competing against each other for PGA Tour priority, with regular-season earnings counting in their totals and the final leader getting a spot in The Players Championship. The other players are fighting for another 25 cards based on their earnings in the series.
