For some, the dream is still alive – for at least two more rounds. For many others, it’s dead and done – time to think about next season.
Rory Sabbatini is tied for second at the Wyndham Championship, which is good news for him, because at 141st on the FedExCup points list, he needs at least a top-10 finish to have a chance at advancing to the playoffs.
Justin Rose, No. 138 in points, also needs at least a top-10 this week at Sedgefield and he’s currently T-5.
Scott Piercy, No. 126 – one off the magic numbers, is currently T-2 when a top-30 finish will punch his ticket to The Northern Trust.
Those are a few of the high-profile, positive stories through 36 holes in the PGA Tour’s season finale. On the opposite end of the spectrum: No. 125, Bo Hoag:
Pressures of Wyndham: Bo Hoag entered the week on the bubble (125th) but was in good shape, -4 through 33 holes.
Pulled tee shot on 7 for a double. Missed an 8-footer for birdie on 8. Finishes at -2 and will likely miss the cut by a shot before packing his bags for KFT Finals.
