Robert Streb won the Mylan Classic on Sunday for his first Web.com Tour title, closing with a 7-under 64 for a four-stroke victory.

The 25-year-old former Kansas State player had a tournament-record 18-under 266 total at Southpointe. He earned $108,000 to jump from 23rd to fourth on the money list with $253,491 — more than enough to earn a 2013 PGA Tour card as a top-25 finisher.

"This is awesome. I finally won somewhere other than my home course," said Streb, whose last two victories came in the Oklahoma State Open at Oaktree in Edmond. "I didn't think I needed a 64 today. I figured if I got to 15 or 16 under I'd have a pretty good chance. The 64 didn't hurt. It gave me some breathing room.

"I've gone through spurts where I putted really well and spurts when I hit it really well, but I kind of strung it together this week. I felt like my game was really good today. The putter was working well and I hit a few close, which made it a little easier."

Matt Weibring, Brad Fritsch, Cliff Kresge tied for second. Weibring shot 67, Fritsch 68, Kresge 69.

Ben Kohles, a two-time winner this year, had a 67 to finish fifth at 13 under.
