Gainey Wins Chiquita Classic

CINCINNATI (AP) - Tommy Gainey shot a 3-under 69 on Sunday to

become the Nationwide Tour's first two-time winner this season,

holding on for a three-stroke victory in the Chiquita Classic.

Gainey, who matched the course record at TPC River Bend with a

62 in the third round, earned $99,000 and moved to No. 1 on the

Nationwide Tour money list with $306,307. The top 25 on the money

list at the end of the year get PGA Tour cards for 2011.

Joe Affrunti shot a 65 in the final round and finished second at

24 under for the tournament. Geoffrey Sisk and Colt Knost tied for

third at 22 under.

Gainey's final score equaled the second-lowest, sub-par finish

in tour history. His 54-hole score of 24 under matched the tour

record.
