Bolli shoots 66 to win Price Cutter



Springfield, MO (Sports Network) - Justin Bolli fired a six-under 66 on Sunday to secure his third Nationwide Tour win at the Price Cutter Charity Championship.

Bolli, three shots off the lead overnight, collected five birdies on the back nine and finished at 21-under 267 for a one-shot victory over Derek Lamely (65) and third round co-leader Chad Collins (70).

John M. Kelly (68) took fourth place at 19-under 269, while Garrett Osborn (69), Henrik Bjornstad (70) and Dave Schultz (72) tied for fifth at 18-under 270.

Bolli scored in the 60s in all four rounds at Highland Springs Country Club, picking up his first win since the 2007 Northeast Pennsylvania Classic.

He pocketed $112,500 for the victory and moved to seventh place on the money list, all but clinching a PGA Tour card for next season. The top 25 on the money list at the end of the year receive promotions.

"I'm definitely looking forward to getting back to the big tour," Bolli said. "But it doesn't change my mindset for this season -- I need to keep playing events and keep playing well. It's very important how high you finish for your priority and status."

Bolli came out of a 90-minute weather delay Sunday and made a 25-foot birdie putt at the 16th hole to take a one-shot lead over four players. He also birdied the 17th hole -- his third straight birdie -- to move to 21-under par.

It was a timely birdie, too, because Lamely made birdie at the 18th hole a few groups ahead of Bolli, getting into the clubhouse at 20-under.

Bolli, who played the last 11 holes at six-under, parred the 18th to hang on for the win.

Afterward, he talked about his long birdie at the 16th hole, which he had been lining up when the horn sounded to stop play for an approaching thunderstorm.

"It's hard to keep your feel (in a weather delay)," Bolli said. "It's hard to get back into the flow of the round. I did hit a few putts, but spent most of the time in the clubhouse trying to relax with friends and family before getting out on the course."
