RSS

OMAHA, Neb. – J.J. Killeen shot a 3-under 69 to win for the second straight week on the Nationwide Tour, two-putting from 90 feet on the final hole to avoid a five-way playoff at the Cox Classic on Sunday.

The former TCU star sank a 5-footer at the last to finish at 22-under 262, edging Jonas Blixt (64), Ken Duke (66), Gary Christian (65) and former U.S. Amateur champion Danny Lee (66) at Champions Run.

Lee was in the final group with Killeen and holed a 15-foot birdie to tie the clubhouse leaders and put pressure on Killeen.

Killeen earned $130,500 for the win and is now second on the money list coming off his victory at the Utah Championship last week. The top 25 on the money list earn PGA Tour cards for next year.
