Raleigh's Hadley wins Rex Hospital Open

— Raleigh native Chesson Hadley shot a 64 on Sunday for a two-stroke victory at the Web.com Tour's Rex Hospital Open.

Hadley began the day five strokes behind third-round leader Danny Lee but finished at 19-under 265 and earned $112,500 for his first win on the tour. The win also secures a spot for Hadley on the PGA Tour in 2014.

"I never thought about winning this tournament," he said. "I didn't think I had a chance. I just wanted to hold things together, try to make a few birdies and hope I could take a step closer to the big goal, which is playing on the PGA Tour.

Hadley — who played at Georgia Tech — had five birdies on the back nine at TPC Wakefield and nearly eagled the par-4 18th to overtake Lee.

Lee took a four-stroke lead into his final round and led most of the day, but bogeyed two of his final four holes and finished at 267.

Edward Loar (68) finished at 268 while Ben Martin (66) and Josh Broadway (69) were at 269.

Wake Forest graduate Len Mattiace fired a four-under round Sunday and finished tied for seventh.

Hadley, who held a two-round lead, fell back Saturday despite posting a 69.

    A 64 is out there. This young pup is on his way to the real Tour one day. I look forward to tracking his career. Golf on WRAL is kinda slow at times.
