NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Robby Shelton won the Nashville Golf Open Benefitting the Snedeker Foundation for his first Web.com Tour victory, beating Scottie Scheffler with a birdie on the first hole of a playoff.

Shelton, the 23-year-old former Alabama player, also birdied the par-5 18th in regulation for a 1-under 71 to match Scheffler at 15-under 273 at Nashville Golf & Athletic Club. He bogeyed the first holes after taking a three-stroke lead into the final round.

Scheffler shot 64. He bogeyed the 17th and parred the 18th in regulation after playing the previous four holes in 5 under with a chip-in eagle and three birdies.

Shelton earned $99,000 and wrapped up a PGA Tour card for next season by moving from eighth to second in the season points list, with the final top 25 advancing. Scheffler also likely secured a tour card by moving to No. 3 in the standings.

Henrik Norlander was a stroke back after a 69.
