Geoff Ogilvy won the Barracuda Championship this morning while New Zealand's Tim Wilkinson finished in a tie for eighth.

Ogilvy scored five points with an eagle on the par-5 13th and pulled away for a five-point victory in the modified Stableford event.

Players receive eight points for double eagle, five for eagle, two for birdie, zero for par, minus-one for bogey and minus-three for double bogey or worse.

Ogilvy, the 2006 US Open winner, added birdies on the par-4 14th and par-5 18th to finish with 49 points in Reno, Nevada.

He had 14 points in the final round with the eagle, five birdies and a bogey. Justin Hicks was second at 44 points after an 18-point day.

John Huh and Jonathan Byrd tied for third at 37. They each had 11-point rounds.

Wilkinson finished 15 points behind the Australian winner in a four-way tie for eighth after securing 12 points in his final round with seven birdies and two bogeys.

Fellow Kiwi Danny Lee finished down the field in a tie for 53rd after scoring six points on the final day with four birdies and two bogeys.

Wilkinson's third top-10 finish of the year will likely improve his FedEx Cup standing after he began the tournament in 108th place.

The top 125 players at the season's end next month retain their PGA Tour cards for next year. There are six tournaments remaining in the 2013/14 schedule.
