Kohles wins Cox Classic for 2nd straight victory
Sunday, August 5, 2012
OMAHA, Neb. — Ben Kohles won his second straight Web.com Tour title since turning professional, closing with a 8-under 62 on Sunday for a three-stroke victory in the Cox Classic.
The 22-year-old former University of Virginia player won the Nationwide Children's Hospital Invitational last week in a playoff in Columbus, Ohio, in his first professional start. He was the first player to win a Web.com title in his pro debut, and is the first to win in his first two tour starts.
Kohles also wrapped up a 2013 PGA Tour card from the Web.com money list, and moved within a victory of an immediate PGA Tour promotion. He earned $117,000 to move into second place on the money list with $261,000, more than enough to finish in the final top 25 and earn a PGA Tour card.
Kohles finished at 24-under 260 at Champions Run.
Dawie van der Walt had a 60 to finish second.
