James Nitties wins Midwest Classic

James Nitties wins Midwest Classic
Australia’s James Nitties won the Midwest Classic on Saturday for his first Nationwide Tour title, shooting with a 6-under 65 for a five-stroke victory.
Nitties fired a closing six-under-par 65 with ping g20 driver seven birdies to win the Midwest Classic in Overland Park, Kansas by five strokes at 26-under 258.Fellow Newcastle product Nick Flanagan tied second with Sweden’s Jonas Blixt after a 68 and would have had second place money on his own but for a bogey on the last.
Nitties is playing the secondary tour after losing his main tour card last season but appears set for a swift return as his $US99,000 first prize money lifted him from 63rd to 12th on the money list.
“I’ve been waiting for this one for a while,” said Nitties, who spent the past two seasons on the PGA Tour. “It seemed like everything went my way this week. It was my day today. There’s still a lot of golf left to play this season, but this puts me in good position to get back to the tour.”He opened with rounds of 65, 63 and 65 and finished at 26-under 258 at Nicklaus Golf Club ping K 15 irons at LionsGate.
“Usually I’m a streaky putter,” Nitties said. “I’ll putt good for one round and then not hole anything the rest of the week. This week, I actually holed the putts I should hole and then made the most of my opportunities.”
It’s been four years since Flanagan won three times in a season on the Nationwide Tour to earn instant promotion to the main tour.He only lasted one year there before dropping back.
