Golf Australia Express : OTG Express 160
Winner Davis Love III is making a last- minute change of plans from a Champions Tour commitment, after making the field of 125 by steaming in from No.186 to 76. “I feel sorry for my friends at the Dick’s (Sporting Goods Open), because they were asking me to play,” he said, though you’d forgive him for not being too cut up about earning a shot at one of sport’s biggest pots of cash. If almost-forgotten Columbian Camilo Villegas could fool his mind into thinking he was playing the Wyndham every week, he’d probably be a major champion by now. For the second year in a row Villegas left his FedEx Cup qualification until the last possible moment. In 2014 he won the Wyndham to secure his spot, while this year he hung onto 26th place to climb from 129th to 123rd. Ryo Ishikawa scraped inside the Cup bubble after a tie for 31st, while Jonas Blixt completed a stunning resurgence to claim one of the last spots in the field. Earlier this season the Swede missed eight out of 10 cuts, before bouncing back with top 30 results at each of his last four starts, including a tie for 10th at Sedgefield Country Club. From here, everything else is a bonus. “It’s a big, heavy burden taken off my shoulders right now,” Blixt said. “It feels really, really good to be able to play well again and hopefully I can make a little run at it in The Playoffs.” Will MacKenzie, Brian Stuard, Scott Stallings, Jamie Donaldson and Nicholas Thompson were the unlucky quintet who fell out of the top 125. And, most notably, there’ll be another name missing for just the second time in the FedEx Cup’s nine-year history. Tiger Woods. The former world No.1 needed a miracle (a win, as it turned out) to secure the most unlikely berth in golf’s finals series, but couldn’t quite conjure his old tricks in the final round of the Wyndham. “I had all the opportunity in the world to do it, but I didn’t get it done. I just wasn’t able to get on any kind of roll early. I had a sand wedge in my hand at 8 and didn’t make birdie there,” he said. “I had my chances to get it going. I just never did.” And so the top 125 is set, with record-breaking Jordan Spieth at the top of the table after a remarkable year earning more than $10 million in prizemoney. You'd be a brave one to think he couldn't double it by the end of September.
