Garnett wins Web.com finale, tops 25 PGA Tour qualifiers
NORTH PLAINS, Ore. (AP) Brice Garnett won the WinCo Foods Portland Open on Sunday to take the Web.com Tour money title and top the 25 PGA Tour qualifiers.
Garnett closed with a 6-under 65 for a four-stroke victory over four players in the regular-season finale. He finished at 18-under 266 on Pumpkin Ridge's Witch Hollow Course and earned $144,000 to jump from 11th to first on the money list with $368,761.
Garnett pulled away with birdies on five of the last eight holes in a back-nine 30. He won the Utah Championship last month for his first Web.com Tour title.
David Skinns (64), Sam Ryder (65), Ben Silverman (66) and Abraham Ancer (69) tied for second and each made $52,800. Ryder, Ancer and Silverman had already locked up top-25 finishes on the money lst, with Ryder moving from sixth to second with $314,306, Ancer from ninth to third, and Silverman from 14th to 10th. Needing a win Sunday to earn a PGA Tour card, Skinns jumped from 115th to 58th to get a spot in the Web.com Tour Finals - the four-event series that will determine another 25 PGA Tour cards.
No players moved into the top 25. Roberto Diaz took the last PGA Tour card with $157,823, edging Keith Mitchell by $6,379. Diaz closed with a 70 to tie for 43rd at 5 under and earn $2,800. Mitchell, part of a four-way tie for the lead after a third-round 62, had a 70 to drop into a tie for sixth at 13 under - missing out on a card by a stroke.
