SPRINGFIELD, Mo.- Stuart Anderson fired a final round 68 for a career best sixth place finish at the Price Cutter Charity Championship on Sunday.
The Sooke, B.C., golfer, who started the day three shots behind the leaders, got off to a fast start with three straight birdies. Following eagle on the par-5 eighth, Anderson found himself in the lead until a double bogey 5 on the par-3 13th.
Anderson finished up three shots behind eventual winner Chris Wilson, who captured his first Web.com Tour title with a birdie on the first playoff hole over Scott Harrington.
Wilson, who missed the cut in 11 of 13 tour starts this year, birdied the final hole of regulation to match Harrington at 21-under 267.
"It's comforting knowing I can perform when it matters most," Wilson said. "Anyone can do it in practice."
Harrington, a Monday qualifier, shot a 68, also birdieing the final hole of regulation at Highland Springs, but hit his second shot into the water on the par-5 closing hole in the playoff.
"I've known Chris a while and we're good friends," Harrington said. "If I could be in a playoff with anybody in this field, it would be him."
Wilson made $112,500 after entering the week with only $6,486 in earnings. He jumped from 165th to 23rd on the money list, with the final top 25 earning 2013 PGA Tour cards.
Anderson's finish earned him his biggest career payday, $20,234.38, which moved him to 106th on the money list.
Andy Winings shot a 65 to finish third at 20 under.
Richard Scott of Kingsville, Ont., shot a final round 70 to finish at 14-under par while Bryan DeCorso of Guelph, Ont., also carded a 70 to finish at 13-under. Brad Fritsch of Ottawa shot 72 to finish at 12-under par.
Ben Kohles, the winner of the previous two events in his first two starts as a professional, tied for 60th at 8 under.
