RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) Trey Mullinax won the Rex Hospital Open on Sunday for his first Tour title, shooting a 3-under 68 for a two-stroke victory.

''It's just unreal. I can't believe it,'' Mullinax said.

The 23-year-old former Alabama player finished at 14-under 270 at TPC Wakefield Plantation. He earned $117,000 to jump from 33rd to fourth on the money list with $154,486. The top 25 at the end of the regular season will earn PGA Tour cards for next season.

After playing the front nine in 2 over, Mullinax birdied the next three holes, chipped in from 20 feet for eagle on the par-5 15th and two-putted from 45 feet for par on the par-4 18th.

Brady Schnell was second after a 72. He bogeyed the final two holes, three-putting from 50 feet on the par-4 17th and hitting into the back bunker on 18.

JT Poston had a 69 to finish third at 11 under. Cameron Percy (67) and Dominic Bozzelli (73) followed at 10 under.
