NEWBURGH, Ind. – Seamus Power took advantage of the other leaders' late problems to win the United Leasing & Finance Championship on Sunday for his first Web.com Tour title.

''It still hasn't really sunk in. Crazy day,'' the 39-year-old Irish player said. ''But, yeah, obviously, over the moon. It's going to take me a couple hours to figure out what it all means, but yeah, right now I'm just very happy and obviously over the moon.''

Power shot a bogey-free 5-under 67 at Victoria National to finish at 12-under 276. He birdied the par-4 17th and parred the par-4 18th.

''To be honest I was just trying to post a number and hope for the best,'' Power said. ''I knew the finish was playing very, very difficult, so to pick one up at 17 was a huge bonus. Then got a good up-and-down at the last after a poor second shot. So when I finished I didn't think it was going to win, but I saw some of the guys dropping shots and just hoped for the best, and it obviously worked out.''

Third-round leader Adam Schenk, Cody Gribble and Jonathan Randolph finished a stroke back. Schenk, from nearby Vincennes, made a double bogey on par-5 15th in a 70. Gribble bogeyed the final two holes for a 69. Randolph bogeyed the 17th in a 67.

Roger Sloan was fifth at 10 under. The Canadian made double bogeys on the final two holes for a 69.

Power earned $108,000 to jump from 47th to seventh on the money list with $131,733, with the top 25 at end of the regular season earning PGA Tour cards.
