Remember the name Denzel Ieremia.

Denzel IeremiaPlaying his way into the field for the Price Cutter Charity Championship on the back of a top-25 finish the week prior, the Kiwi rookie backed it up again with a tie for 23rd that may earn him yet another start in the week ahead at the Ellie Mae Classic.

In six starts on the Australasian, Asian and Korn Ferry Tours this year Ieremia has missed only one cut and when he has played all four rounds has finished in the top 25 on every occasion.

With rich New Zealand sporting bloodlines, Ieremia attended Iowa State University along with fellow Kiwi Nick Voke and has adjusted superbly to the demands of the professional game.

Tied for 38th going into the final round of the Price Cutter Charity Championship won by Harry Higgs, Ieremia played the front nine in 2-under and added two further birdies on the back nine to climb 15 spots and inside the top 25.

Showing that the veteran Kiwis can still hold their own with the good crop coming through, Steven Alker was the best of the Australasian players this week in a tie for 10th, a result that moves him inside the top 50 on the Order of Merit.

There are just two tournaments remaining in the Korn Ferry Tour regular season and there are three Australasian players in the mix for promotion to the PGA TOUR in 2020.

Rhein Gibson is guaranteed his PGA TOUR card in 10th position while Tim Wilkinson (19th) and Brett Coletta (22nd) can secure their futures with one more strong result.

Of those on the outside looking in, Jamie Arnold (34th), Alker (45th) and Cameron Percy (52nd) are currently inside the top 75 who advance to the Korn Ferry Tour Finals.
