KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Martin Piller won the News Sentinel Open on Sunday at Fox Den to give himself a chance to earn a PGA Tour card through the regular-season money list.

The 28-year-old Piller, married to LPGA Tour player Gerina Piller, shot an 8-under 63 for a two-stroke victory over former Texas A&M teammate Bronson Burgoon.

''Wow, I did it,'' Piller said. ''It was really awesome.''

Piller finished at 22-under 262 for his third career Web.com Tour title and first since 2010.

''I don't even know what to say right now,'' Piller said. ''It's been a tough couple of years, but this is sweet.''

He earned $99,000 to jump from 134th to 29th on the money list with $120,676, with the top 25 after the Portland Open next week earning 2014-15 PGA Tour cards.

Piller eagled the par-5 10th and had seven birdies and a bogey in the final round. He opened with rounds of 65, 67 and 67.

Burgoon matched the course record with a 62 after shooting a 64 on Saturday.

''I've been playing good all week,'' said Burgoon, who moved to 36th on the money list. ''I've been hitting it close all week; I finally got some putts to fall. I'm thrilled, this gets me into the playoffs.''

The four-event Web.com Tour Finals - also offering 25 PGA Tour cards - starts Aug 28-31 in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

Darron Stiles was third at 18 under after a 64.
