COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Adam Svensson won the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship, closing with a 4-under 67 for a two-stroke victory in the second of three Korn Ferry Tour Finals events.

Already headed to the PGA TOUR next season as a top-25 finisher in the regular-season points race, Svensson finished with a tournament-record 17-under 267 total on Ohio State’s Scarlet Course. The 27-year-old Canadian has three career victories, also winning the Club Car Championship in March in Georgia.

Bronson Burgoon (66) and Stephan Jaeger (71) tied for second.

The Korn Ferry Tour Championship is next week at Victoria National in Newburgh, Indiana.
