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.
