Grayson Murray wins Web.com Tour event in Ohio
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Grayson Murray won the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship on Sunday and Cameron Smith and Kevin Tway wrapped up PGA Tour cards.
Already guaranteed a PGA Tour card with an 18th-place finish on the Web.com Tour's regular-season money list, Murray closed with a 3-under 68 to beat Smith by a stroke in the third of four events in the Web.com Tour Finals. Tway tied for third with third-round leader Martin Flores.
Murray finished at 12-under 272 on Ohio State's Scarlet Course and earned $180,000 to jump from 11th to second with $407,963 on the PGA Tour priority list among the 25 card-earners from the Web.com money list. The former Wake Forest and Arizona State player will be 23 on Saturday.
Murray lost in a three-man playoff in August in the Web.com Tour event in Wichita, Kansas.
Smith also shot a 67. After finishing 157th in the PGA Tour's FedEx Cups standings, the Australian made $108,000 to go from 48th to third with $114,910 in the series race for 25 more PGA Tour cards.
Tway had a 67 to match Flores (74) at 10 under. Tway was 27th on the Web.com money list. His $58,000 check moved him from 52nd to ninth with $63,975, more than enough to secure one of the 25 cards. The last PGA Tour card went at $33,650 in 2013, $36,312 in 2014 and $32,206 last year.
Flores earned a card with a fifth-place finish on the Web.com money list. He's fifth on PGA Tour priority list with $346,313, with regular-season money counting in the total.
