Noh secures PGA card with Web.com Tour win

COLUMBUS, Ohio - South Korea's Seung-Yul Noh won the third of four Web.com Tour Finals series events Sunday to wrap up a PGA Tour card.

The 22-year-old Noh closed with a 2-under 69 for a five-stroke victory in the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship. He finished at 12-under 272 on Ohio State's Scarlet Course and earned $180,000 to take the series lead with $210,125.

The bulk of the series field is made up of players in the top 75 on the Web.com Tour money list and Nos. 126-200 in the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup standings. The top 25 on the Web.com regular-season money list are assured PGA Tour cards for the 2013-14 season, while the other players are fighting for 25 additional cards through earnings in the finals.

Noh was 160th in the FedEx Cup standings. He opened the series with a seventh-place tie in Fort Wayne, Ind., and missed the cut last week in Davidson, N.C. Noh has two victories on the Asian Tour - the 2008 China Classic at age 16 and the 2010 Malaysian Open.

Edward Loar was second at 7 under after a 65. Playing for a top priority ranking after finishing fourth on the Web.com money list, he's sixth on the series list with $119,200.

John Peterson followed at 6 under after a 66. After finishing 30th on the Web.com money list, he's fifth in the series with $164,000 to guarantee a PGA Tour card.

Ben Martin (67), Chesson Hadley (71) and South Africa's Tyrone Van Aswegen (73) tied for fourth at 4 under. Martin was second on the Web.com money list, Hadley third, and Van Aswegen 49th.

Adam Hadwin of Abbotsford, B.C. carded a final round 70 to finish in a tie for 37th. The result leaves him 88th in the Finals series money list with one event to be played.

The series will end Sept. 26-29 with the Web.com Tour Championship in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. The money leader in the four events will be fully exempt and earn a spot in The Players Championship.
