VALDOSTA, Ga. – Will Wilcox won the South Georgia Classic on Sunday for his first victory on the Web.com Tour.

Wilcox shot a 1-over 73 to finish four strokes ahead of Zack Sucher, D.J. Brigman and Michael Putnam, who tied for second at 11 under. The 26-year-old Wilcox earned $117,000 and moved from No. 55 to No. 3 on the tour money list.

Wilcox was in control throughout the final round after he shot a course-record 63 on Saturday to open a seven-stroke lead. He bogeyed his final hole of the tournament at the Kinderlou Forest Golf Club, but it didn't matter one bit.

Alex Rocha (67), Andrew Loupe (70) and Ryan Spears tied for fifth at 10 under.
