Brendon de Jonge has a remarkable 66.13 stroke average in his two fall starts.
With just one event remaining in the 2012 PGA TOUR season, the heat is on every one of the 128 players that are teeing it up in the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Classic.
A handful, as usual, are trying to sneak into the top 125, but there’s plenty more at stake: The top 30 on the money list get into the Masters. The PGA TOUR Rookie of the Year race is definitely undecided. And it’s more one chance to win and lock up a spot in the Hyundai Tournament of Champions, and with it, a two-year PGA TOUR exemption.
There have been some big storylines over the last three fall events. Ryan Moore won in his adopted Las Vegas — the same place where he starred at UNLV — and there have been two first-time winners (Jonas Blixt, Tommy Gainey).
