Cox Classic (Rd. 4)

OMAHA, Neb. – Martin Piller shot a 7-under 64 Sunday to come from behind and win the Nationwide Tour’s Cox Classic by two strokes over Dicky Pride.

Piller made the 36-hole cut by a stroke, then charged into contention with a 62 on Saturday. He pulled away from the field Sunday to earn his second win of the season and lock up a spot on the PGA Tour in 2011.

Piller finished at 23-under 261 and collected a $130,500 check. Pride was two strokes back after shooting a 66. Alistair Presnell (64) and James Hahn (68) were three back.

The victory moved Piller, a second-year pro out of Texas A&M, from No. 10 to No. 3 on the money list with $318,621 and solidified a trip to the PGA Tour next season.
