    KNOXVILLE, Tennessee — Money leader Patton Kizzire won the News Sentinel Open on Sunday for his second Tour title of the season.

    Kizzire closed with his second straight 7-under 64 to finish at 20-under 264 at Fox Den, four strokes ahead of South Korea's Si Woo Kim and Canada's Brad Fritsch.

    "It's surreal. I still don't realize that I won," Kizzire said. "It was a grind but it was fun. I don't like to think about numbers but 20 was a hard number to ignore. That's a milestone in itself. That was in my mind. I don't like doing that, but it was there."

    The 29-year-old former Auburn player earned $99,000 to push his season total to $512,553.

    He donned an orange Tennessee jacket during the trophy ceremony.

    "It's a good orange to wear today," Kizzire said.

    He also won the Utah Championship last month.

    Kim finished with a 66, and Fritsch had a 67.
