Stephan Jaeger took home the BMW Charity Pro-Am trophy Sunday without teeing up for the fourth round. The final round was cancelled on Sunday due to heavy rain.

Jaeger, UT-Chattanooga alumni from Munich, earned $126,000 for the win. Jaeger cemented his victory on Saturday after taking possession of the 54-hole lead after two eagles.

Jaeger finished the tournament at 19-under-par (64, 66, 65), and moved to number seven on the money list for the Web.com Tour. The top 25 money leaders on the tour automatically earn playing status on the PGA Tour for the 2017-2018 season.

Amateur Kyle Milner and his professional partner Guillermo Pereira won the X3 division of the Pro-Am portion of the tournament at 39-under-par. Amateur Wes Favors and his professional partner Ben Taylor won the X5 division at 39-under-par.

In the celebrity division, country music artist Colt Ford and his professional partner Sepp Straka won the Pro-Celebrity X1 competition, scoring 30-under-par. Winning the X6 division was actress Paula Trickey with the help of her partner Christian Brand, scoring 28-under-par.

The Charity Cup, awarded to the charity and celebrity charity of choice who garnered the highest total of donations, went to The Blade Jr. Golf Classic and its celebrity partner, retired Major League Baseball pitcher Russ Ortiz.
