Luke List won the South Georgia Classic on Sunday for his first Nationwide Tour title, closing with a 4-under 68 for a two-stroke victory over Brian Stuard.

For some golfers, the biggest prizes aren't their tournament wins but their wives and girlfriends.

The former Vanderbilt player finished at 16-under 272 at Kinderlou Forest, and earned $112,500.

''It feels fantastic,'' said List, surrounded by his parents, grandparents and girlfriend. ''It's hard to describe. I really put my head down, especially on the weekend. I knew where I was all day and it was nice to perform under the pressure. Hopefully, this will be a turning point for me and I can get a few more this year.''

Stuard finished with a 66. Three-time PGA Tour winner Woody Austin, tied for the third-hole lead with List, had a 73 to drop the third, five strokes back.

List averaged a field-best 329 yards off the tee on the 7,781-yard course, the longest on the tour.

''This course sets up so well for me that I just told myself to stay out of your way and do the right things,'' List said. ''Out here with my length I just had so many opportunities. This is a long course but I had a lot of wedges where I could give myself those 15- to 20-footers. I never felt stressed out there.''
