OVERLAND PARK, Kansas (AP) — Martin Piller won the Digital Ally Open for his second Web.Com Tour victory of the year, matching the tournament scoring record at 26-under 258.

The 29-year-old Piller, married to LPGA Tour player Gerina Piller, closed with a 6-under 65 at the Nicklaus Golf Club at LionsGate to tie the mark set by James Nitties in 2011.

“I didn’t have any kind of number in mind. I just wanted to play as well as I could on each shot,” Piller said. “I knew there were a lot of good players chasing me today. You don’t ever expect to go bogey-free in the final round.”
