Luke Guthrie Wins WNB Golf Classic
MIDLAND (AP) – Luke Guthrie rallied to win the WNB Golf Classic on Sunday for his second straight Web.com Tour title, closing with a 6-under 66 for a one-stroke victory.
Guthrie, the 22-year-old former Illinois player who turned professional this year after the NCAA tournament, had a 17-under 271 total at Midland Country Club.
Coming off a victory last week in the Boise Open, he earned $99,000 to jump from fourth to first on the money list with $382,463. The final top 25 on the list will earn 2013 PGA Tour cards.
Guthrie has six top-10 finishes in seven starts on the developmental tour, losing a playoff to Ben Kohles in Columbus, Ohio, and tying for third in Omaha, Neb. The two-time Big Ten champion also has earned $284,672 in three PGA Tour starts, all top-20 finishes. He tied for fifth in the John Deere Classic in July.
New Zealand’s Danny Lee and Australia’s Cameron Percy tied for second. Lee, the third-round leader, finished with a 72, and Percy shot a 70.
