Ben Martin won the Mylan Classic on Sunday for his second Web.com Tour title of the year, shooting his third straight 4-under 67 for a five-stroke victory.

The 25-year-old former Clemson player had a 17-under 267 total at Southpointe Golf Club. He earned $121,500 to jump from fourth to second on the money list with $396,249.

Martin also won the United Leasing Championship in a playoff July 1 in Newburgh, Ind. He took a four-stroke lead into the final round.

"I got a text from my friend Charles Warren who told me that if I went out and shot the best round of the day today I'd probably be OK," Martin said. "My caddie and I talked about playing today like I was one shot behind. Starting off with a four-shot lead, sometimes you can get defensive."

Martin has five top-six finishes in his last six starts and 13 top-30 finishes in 17 events this year.

"At the start of the year consistency is one of the things I wanted to work on," Martin said. "My coach used to tell me that great golf is playing consistently good golf. I've had some runs before but this is the most consistent I've ever played. It's fun to keep this going."

Former U.S. Amateur champion Kelly Kraft had a 64 to finish second.
