WICHITA, Kan. -- Scott Parel won the Air Capital Classic on Sunday to become the fourth-oldest winner in Web.com Tour history, closing with a 7-under 64 for a three-stroke victory.
The 48-year-old Parel finished at 18-under 266 at Crestview Country Club after opening with rounds of 69, 66 and 67. He earned $117,000 to jump from 153rd to 14th on the money list with $124,808.
"Obviously, I'm playing well now," he said. "My goal now is to climb up there as high as I can and a win is a good start toward it."
Parel won for the first time in 171 starts on the tour. He made a 45-foot putt to eagle the par-4 14th for the second straight day and had six birdies and a bogey.
"All week long over longer putts I felt like I could make them," he said. "From 20 feet and out I felt like I really had the speed and could really see the line."
Parel didn't play while in school at the University of Georgia and worked as a computer programmer for 10 years before becoming a professional golfer.
Kirk Triplett is the oldest Web.com Tour champion, winning the 2011 News Sentinel Open at 49.
Alex Aragon was second after a 65.
