KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Martin Piller won the News Sentinel Open on Sunday at Fox Den to give himself a chance to earn a PGA Tour card through the regular-season money list.
The 28-year-old Piller, married to LPGA Tour player Gerina Piller, shot an 8-under 63 for a two-stroke victory over former Texas A&M teammate Bronson Burgoon.
Piller finished at 22-under 262 for his third career Web.com Tour title. He earned $99,000 to jump from 134th to 29th on the money list with $120,676, with the top 25 after the Portland Open next week earning 2014-15 PGA Tour cards.
Burgoon matched the course record with a 62 after shooting a 64 on Saturday.
