0 comments

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - Australia's Cameron Percy won his first Web.Com Tour title Sunday, birdieing the final two holes for a one-stroke victory over four players in the Price Cutter Charity Championship.

The 40-year-old Percy, a five-time winner on the Australasian Tour, closed with a 5-under 67 to finish at 21-under 267 at Highland Springs. He earned $121,500 to jump from 33rd to 12th on the money list with $217,347. The top 25 after the final two regular-season events will earn 2014-15 PGA Tour cards.

"It feels unbelievable," said Percy, making his 131st start on the tour. "I've been playing well for a while. To get out with a win feels fantastic."

Brandt Jobe, Zac Blair, Michael Kim and Carlos Sainz Jr. tied for second. Jobe finished with a 65, Blair had a 66, and Kim and Sainz shot 67. Kim was penalized a stroke on No. 18 for lifting his ball in the rough.

  • "I was in the first primary cut and it's been muddy all week," Kim said. "I wanted to check if there was mud on the ball anywhere for the lay-up. I marked it, I picked it up, and I put it back right where it went. The rules official came over because we weren't' sure if that was a penalty or not. And he told me it was a one-shot penalty. ... It's pretty disappointing."

    Percy drove into the left rough on the par-5 18th and hit a hybrid from 208 yards through the green. After a free drop from a sprinkler head, Percy got up-and-down for the victory.

    "It's amazing what goes through your head," Percy said. "I got lucky that ball was next to the sprinkler."
