Former South Carolina player Mark Anderson won the BMW Charity Pro-Am on Sunday in Greer, S.C., for his first Web.com Tour title, closing with a 6-under 65 for a five-stroke victory.

The 27-year-old Anderson had a tournament-record 27-under 259 total, the third-lowest score in relation to par in tour history.

Former TCU player Tom Hoge shot a 67 to finish second. Franklin Corpening, another former TCU player and a Fort Worth Paschal graduate, tied for third at 21 under along with Chesson Hadley and Michael Connell. Hadley had a 63, Connell shot 65, and Corpening, the second-round leader, closed with a 70.

Fort Worth natives Hunter Haas (66-269) and John Peterson (71-271) finished in ties for 14th and 23rd, respectively.

Corpening, who grew up playing golf at Colonial Country Club, will compete this week in the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

Anderson earned $117,000 to jump from 133rd to ninth on the money list with $124,535.

Hadley matched the tour record for nine holes when he went out in 8-under 27, making six birdies and an eagle.

American wins LPGA event

Jennifer Johnson won the Mobile Bay (Ala.) LPGA Classic for her first tour title, birdieing four of the final six holes for a one-stroke victory over Jessica Korda and Pornanong Phatlum.

The 21-year-old American closed with her second straight 7-under 65 for a tournament-record 21-under 267 total. She two-putted for par on the final hole, tipped her cap and headed toward the practice range in case of a playoff.

But Phatlum was already done and the lead was safe even with Korda's closing birdie. Phatlum, a 23-year-old from Thailand, closed with a 63. Her previous best finish was third at the Kia Classic.

Korda finished with a 68 that included three bogeys and seven birdies.

Five players finished two strokes back, including Hall of Famer Karrie Webb.

McDowell beats Jaidee to win World Match Play

Graeme McDowell made amends for last year’s defeat to capture the World Match-Play Championship, defeating Thailand’s Thongchai Jaidee 2 and 1 in the final in Kavarna, Bulgaria.

The 2010 U.S. Open champion fought back from 2 down after four holes and only edged in front of his 43-year old opponent on the 14th hole before securing the victory at the 17th.

It was McDowell’s second win in three events after he also captured the PGA Tour’s RBC Heritage earlier this month at Hilton Head, S.C.

McDowell moved to the top of the European Tour money list and will also move up one place to No. 7 on the world rankings.

The Northern Irishman advanced to the final by defeating Branden Grace of South Africa 3 and 2 in the semifinals earlier in the day. He needed the qualities that allowed him to play on two Ryder Cup-winning teams.

American Peter Uihlein wins Madeira Islands Open

American Peter Uihlein won the Madeira Islands Open in Portugal in his 16th European Tour start for his first professional title, closing with a 4-under 68 for a two-stroke victory.

Uihlein, the former Oklahoma State star who won the 2010 U.S. Amateur and 2011 Ben Hogan Award, birdied four of his last eight holes to finish at 15-under 273 at Santo da Serra.

The 23-year-old Uihlein earned a European Tour exemption through next season. His father, Wally Uihlein, is the chief executive golf apparel and equipment manufacturer Acushnet.

Denmark’s Morten Orum Madsen had a double bogey on the 18th for a 67 to tie for second with Chile’s Mark Tullo. Tullo, the third-round leader, had a hole-in-one on No. 4, but had four bogeys in a 71.
