NORTH PLAINS, Oregon — Dicky Pride won the Web.com Tour's Portland Open on Sunday and earned a PGA Tour card with a fifth-place finish on the regular-season money list.

The 46-year-old Pride, 40th on the money list entering the week, earned $144,000 to push his season total to $253,057. He closed with a 4-under 67 for a three-stroke victory over Tim Herron.

The top 25 on the money list earned 2015-16 PGA Tour cards. The four-event Web.com Tour Finals — also offering 25 PGA Tour cards — starts Sept. 10-13 in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

Pride won his first title since the 1994 St. Jude Classic in his rookie season on the PGA Tour. He finished at 20-under 264 on Pumpkin Ridge's Witch Hollow course after opening with rounds of 65, 66 and 66 to take a four-stroke lead over Herron into the final round.

The 45-year-old Herron finished with a 66. He won the last of his four PGA Tour titles in 2006.

Tommy Gainey, also a PGA Tour winner, was third at 15 under after a 65.
