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.
