To say the least, this is an important day for players such as Richard H. Lee and Tim Herron.

Lee and Herron entered the J.T. Shriners Hospitals for Children Open outside the top 125 on the money list and in need of some quality play in the final four events of the season in order to obtain their PGA TOUR card for 2013.

So far, so good.

Lee opened with four birdies in his first six holes on Sunday and was projected to move up some 20 spots on the money list. Herron was just opening his round, finishing Round 3 tied for fourth — five shots back of the leaders. He was projected to move to No. 125 on the money list.

Lee had just one top 25 this season until he stringed together a T12 and T14 at the Reno-Tahoe Open and Wyndham Championship. He recently tied for second at the Albertsons Boise Open Presented by Kraft on the Tour.

Herron has had only two top 25s, including a T11 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by MasterCard. Herron is seeking his first victory today since 2006.
