Former Alabama golfer Robby Shelton got up-and-down from a bunker to save par on the 18th hole Sunday for an even-par 71, giving him a one-shot victory in the Knoxville Open and his second Web.com Tour victory of the year.
Shelton started the final round at Fox Den Country Club with a two-shot lead and fell behind early with consecutive bogeys as Zhang Xinjun made two early birdies. Shelton started the back nine with back-to-back birdies to regain control.
Mark Anderson began the back nine with an eagle and finished with a birdie and a 68, making Shelton finish with par for the wind.
Shelton finished at 15-under 269.
He won two weeks ago in the Nashville Golf Open, and this victory enabled him to take over the lead from Zhang on the Web.com Tour points list. The top 25 earn PGA Tour cards at the end of the regular season.
Zhang (70), Tim Wilkinson (70) and Mark Hubbard (71) tied for third.
