The former University of Minnesota player beat Matt Bettencourt with a par on the third hole of a playoff.

La'Cassie birdied the final two holes for a 4-under 67 to match Bettencourt at 21-under 263 at Champions Run. Bettencourt also finished with a 67.

La'Cassie earned $144,000 to jump from 33rd to sixth on the money list with $255,629. The top 25 after the tournament earned PGA Tour cards for the 2013-14 season.

``It feels really good, it gives you the belief that you can do it again so it feels great,'' La'Cassie said. ``I've never been to the tour before, so that will be sweet. ... I've always wanted to play in America watching it on TV back home. This is the place you want to be if you're going to make it.''

La'Cassie will play in the Web.com Tour Finals to position himself with the highest priority ranking possible for next season. He plans to keep it simple in the final four events.

``I'm playing well,'' he said. ``I'm really not going to worry about too much and just keep playing.''

Bettencourt made $$86,400 to finish 16th with $162,877.

``It's good to have my card back,'' Bettencourt said. ``I feel great and I'm looking forward to playing next week.''

Michael Putnam topped the list with $450,184. He had a 72 on Sunday to tie for 12th at 14 under.
