Lingmerth wins Web.com Tour event

POTOMAC, Md. (AP) - Sweden's David Lingmerth won the Web.com Tour's Neediest Kids Championship on Sunday to wrap up a 2013 PGA Tour card, closing with a 4-under 66 in cold and damp conditions for a one-stroke victory over Casey Wittenberg.

Lingmerth finished at 8-under 272 at TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm and earned $108,000 to jump from 27th to seventh on the money list with $249,043, more than enough to guarantee a top-25 finish.

``It feels fantastic,'' the 25-year-old former Arkansas player said ``I've been working my whole life for an opportunity to play with the big boys. This is huge because I've been close a few times. It took me a little while, but this feels great.''

Wittenberg shot a 69, missing a 40-foot birdie try by inches on the final hole. He earned $64,800 to regain the money lead with $407,453 with three events left.

Lingmerth won his first professional title.

``I was really calm all day,'' he said. ``You've really got to golf your ball out here. The key ingredient this week was that I finally got to make some putts. I knew I wasn't putting up to my ability this year and I finally found a feeling that I like.''

The temperature barely cracked 50 degrees.

``I was actually fist-pumping in the car coming over this morning,'' he said. ``I knew it was going to be lousy weather. This is a good day in Sweden.''
