GREER, S.C. (AP) Richy Werenski won the BMW Charity Pro-Am on Sunday for his first Tour title, finishing with his second straight 6-under 65 for a two-stroke victory.

Werenski, the 24-year-old former Georgia Tech player who won the Golf Channel's ''Big Break'' series last year, birdied the par-5 15th and 16th holes and closed with two pars at the Thornblade Club. He finished the three-course event at 21-under 265.

Based in Bluffton, South Carolina, Werenski made $121,500 to jump from seventh to second on the money list with $258,958 - more than enough to earn a PGA Tour as a top-25 finisher in the regular season. He tied for second this season in the Club Colombia and El Bosque Mexico championships.

Zack Sucher (65), Brian Campbell (66) and Brett Drewitt (66) tied for second. Third-round leader Brandon Hagy (69) was fifth at 18 under.
