WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Casey Wittenberg won the Wichita Open on Sunday for his second Nationwide Tour victory of the season, closing with a 5-under 66 for a two-stroke victory over Justin Hicks and Jim Herman.

Wittenberg, also the Louisiana Open winner, finished at 18-under 266 at Crestview Country Club. He tied for 10th last week in the U.S. Open.

Wittenberg earned $108,000 to jump from 10th to second on the money list with $240,019. The final top 25 will earn 2013 PGA Tour cards. He also could earn an immediate promotion with a third victory.

Hicks shot a 67, and Herman had a 70.
