Springfield - South Africa's Dawie van der Walt won the Price Cutter Charity Championship on Sunday for his second Tour victory of the season.

Van der Walt closed with an even-par 72 at Highland Springs to finish at 23-under 265, two strokes ahead of tour rookie Smylie Kaufman.

"I feel very fortunate," van der Walt said. "I didn't think it was going to be enough. Everything was just a little bit off, but I'll take it."

He earned $121 500 to jump from 16th to third on the money list with $286 827, more than enough to wrap up a PGA Tour card for next season.

"My goal coming into this week was to secure my PGA Tour card," he said.

"I came to America to play college golf. Also, I wanted to play the PGA Tour."

Van der Walt opened with rounds of 63, 65, 65 to take a four-stroke lead into the final round.

Kaufman finished with a 70.

Martin Piller, also a two-time winner this year, had a 71 to tie for third at 20 under with Dicky Pride (65) and Brad Elder (68).
