Chris Wilson Wins First Web.com Tour Title

SPRINGFIELD, MO (AP) – Chris Wilson won the Price Cutter Charity Championship on Sunday for his first Web.com Tour title, beating Scott Harrington with a birdie on the first hole of a playoff.

Wilson, the former Northwestern player who missed the cuts in 11 of his previous 13 tour starts this year, birdied the final hole of regulation for a 5-under 67 to match Harrington, also a former Northwestern player, at 21-under 267.

Harrington shot a 68, also birdieing the final hole of regulation at Highland Springs, but hit his second shot into the water on the par-5 closing hole in the playoff.

Wilson made $112,500 after entering the week with only $6,486 in earnings.

Andy Winings shot a 65 to finish third at 20 under.

Ben Kohles, the winner of the previous two events in his first two starts as a professional, tied for 60th at 8 under.
