PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Florida (AP) — Argentina’s Emiliano Grillo made a 25-foot birdie putt on the final hole to win the Tour Finals-ending Tour Championship, and Rob Oppenheim got the last PGA Tour card when Lucas Glover shook up the order with a closing bogey.

The 23-year-old Grillo beat Chez Reavie by a stroke in the last of the four events that replaced PGA Tour qualifying school, finishing with a 1-under 69 for a 14-under 266 total on the Dye’s Valley Course at TPC Sawgrass.

“I gave my best out there, and I think the best thing I did all day was making that putt on 18,” Grillo said. “It’s been a great week. I’m on the PGA Tour and it feels great.”

Reavie had a chance to force a playoff, but missed a 15-foot birdie putt. He shot a 68.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Andrew Loupe won the Tour Finals’ Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship to earn a PGA Tour card.

Loupe closed with a 1-under 70 for a two-stroke victory. The 26-year-old former LSU player finished at 5-under 279 on Ohio State’s difficult Scarlet Course.

“I knew what I had on the line,” Loupe said. “I just kept telling myself to take it on this week.”

Loupe birdied the par-4 14th to take the outright lead.

“It’s been a long time since I’ve won,” Loupe said. “I guess I’ve got to cherish these moments. It’s hard to win in golf. But I always believed. I’ve been telling myself for a long time that I could do this. To be honest, this course stood out to me. I thought that it was probably my best chance to get one just because you can use length as an advantage a little bit out here.”
