MAINEVILLE, Ohio (AP) - Russell Knox shot a 6-under 66 to earn his first Nationwide Tour victory Sunday, beating Billy Hurley by three strokes at the Chiquita Classic.

The Scot began the day with a one-stroke lead and was never challenged at TPC River's Bend, finishing at 25-under 263. He moved from No. 27 to No. 5 on the season money list. The 25 top money-winners will earn PGA Tour cards for 2013.

Hurley closed with six birdies on the back nine for a 64 and a career best finish.

Brian Stuard (65) and Greg Owen (67) tied for third at 20 under. Chris Nallen posted the day's best score, a 63 that moved him to 19 under and a tie for fifth with Josh Broadaway (69) and B.J. Staten (71).
