Ollie Schniederjans wins Webcom Tour event in Wichita
WICHITA, Kan. (AP) Ollie Schniederjans won the Air Capital Classic on Sunday for his first Web.com Tour title, beating amateur Collin Morikawa and J.J. Spaun with a birdie on the second hole of a playoff.
Schniederjans shot a 3-under 67 to match Morikawa and Spaun at 17-under 263 at Crestview Country Club.
Schniederjans matched the course record with a 61 on Saturday to take a two-stroke lead into the final round. The 23-year-old former Georgia Tech star earned $112,500 to jump from 14th to third on the money list with $245,713, more than enough to wrap up a PGA Tour card as a top-25 finisher in the regular season.
In April in Colombia, Schniederjans lost a playoff to Brad Fritsch in the Servientrega Championship.
Morikawa, the Pac-12 freshman of the year at the University of California, shot his second straight 63. He played the final five holes of regulation in 5 under, with an eagle on the par-5 14th and birdies on the par-4 15th, 16th and 18th.
Spaun finished with his second 64 in a row. He also played the final five holes of regulation in 5 under, with an eagle on 14 and birdies on the next three.
Brandon Hagy was fourth at 16 under after a 65.
