(AP) South Korea's Seung-Yul Noh won the third of four Web.com Tour Finals series events Sunday to wrap up a PGA Tour card.


The 22-year-old Noh closed with a 2-under 69 for a five-stroke victory in the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship. He finished at 12-under 272 on Ohio State's Scarlet Course and earned $180,000 to take the series lead with $210,125.


The bulk of the series field is made up of players in the top 75 on the Web.com Tour money list and Nos. 126-200 in the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup standings. The top 25 on the Web.com regular-season money list are assured PGA Tour cards for the 2013-14 season, while the other players are fighting for 25 additional cards through earnings in the finals.


Noh was 160th in the FedEx Cup standings. He opened the series with a seventh-place tie in Fort Wayne, Ind., and missed the cut last week in Davidson, N.C. Noh has two victories on the Asian Tour the 2008 China Classic at age 16 and the 2010 Malaysian Open.


Edward Loar was second at 7 under after a 65. Playing for a top priority ranking after finishing fourth on the Web.com money list, he's sixth on the series list with $119,200.


John Peterson followed at 6 under after a 66. After finishing 30th on the Web.com money list, he's fifth in the series with $164,000 to guarantee a PGA Tour card.


Ben Martin (67), Chesson Hadley (71) and South Africa's Tyrone Van Aswegen (73) tied for fourth at 4 under. Martin was second on the Web.com money list, Hadley third, and Van Aswegen 49th.


The series will end Sept. 26-29 with the Web.com Tour Championship in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. The money leader in the four events will be fully exempt and earn a spot in The Players Championship.
