MIDLAND, Texas (AP) Andrew Putnam won the WNB Golf Classic for his first Web.com Tour title Sunday when high wind wiped out the final round at Midland Country Club.
The 25-year-old Putnam completed seven holes and had an eight-stroke lead when play was stopped shortly after noon with sustained wind of 28 mph and gusts to 43 mph. The gusts reached 50 mph about an hour later.
Putnam, a former Pepperdine player from Tacoma, Wash., shot an 8-under 64 on Saturday to reach 20 under and open a seven-stroke advantage.
Putnam earned $108,000 to jump from sixth to second on the money list with $248,273, more than enough to earn a spot on the 2014-15 PGA Tour. His older brother, Michael, is on the PGA Tour this season and after winning the Web.com Tour money title last year.
Sweden's Richard S. Johnson and Australia's Rod Pamlping tied for second.
