Golf Australia Express : OTG Express 160
W elcome to the place where dreams are made. Or was that the place where obscene financial payments are made? Jason Gore is probably just hoping it’s the place were T-shirts are made. It’s FedEx Cup time – that wonderful gold- laden bridge between the final major of the year and the end of the season – and regardless of the results in the coming weeks, Gore [pictured top left] will probably consider himself the luckiest man in the field. After a season in which the American had made just 11 cuts from his 23 events, he was expecting to be scratching out a living on the web.com Tour in 2016. At 41 years of age, the future wasn’t exactly rosy. But then his come-from-the-clouds second place at the Wyndham Championship happened, and now he’s got bigger things to worry about after vaulting into 98th place in the FedEx Cup standings. Bigger things, for example, like what he’s going to pull out of his suitcase at The Barclays. “I got no clothes to wear,” he said on Sunday. “I have no shirts or nothing.” Life’s tough when you’ve planned on your season – and PGA Tour card – winding up in late August and the next moment you’re all booked out until late September and beyond. “You know what? I came here looking for a job next year and maybe next week I’ll aim to win,” Gore mused. “Set a goal to win instead of just keeping my job. It was a great week.” Gore entered the Wyndham Championship ranked 166th in the FedEx Cup standings, but launched himself just inside the top 100 after his solo runner-up finish. And he wasn’t the only one to sneak in. A record-tying five players booked a Cup berth at the last hurdle, while on the flipside, five players lost their places less than a week before the race for the top $10 million prize begins. THE PLAYOFFS KICK OFF THIS WEEK AT THE BARCLAYS EVENT HELD AT PLAINFIELD CC.
