SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP)

Andrew Svoboda won the Price Cutter Charity Championship on Sunday for his first Web.com Tour title, closing with an 8-under-par 64 for a three-stroke victory.

The 33-year-old former St. John's player finished at 22-under 266 at Highland Springs Country Club. He opened with a 64 and followed with rounds of 72 and 66.

''It was a great final day. I've played in four US Opens and won a lot as an amateur, but this is the greatest feeling for me,'' Svoboda said. ''For me to be able to win on this level is great. To win means everything to me.''

In 17 PGA Tour starts this year, Svoboda has made only four cuts and withdrew from another event. He has played six Web.com Tour events, missing three cuts.

''This really came out of nowhere,'' said Svoboda, who earned $121,500. ''It wasn't very long ago that I was telling my caddie I wasn't sure if I was going to play golf anymore. It's a crazy game.''

Brazil's Fernando Mechereffe shot a 67 to finish second. Matt Davidson and Sweden's Daniel Chopra tied for third at 18 under. Davidson had a 64, and Chopra finished with a 68.
