Victorian Cameron Percy will endeavor to rectify a season derailed by a holiday mishap when he tees it up in the opening week of the Korn Ferry Tour Finals this week.
Percy and Korn Ferry Tour regulars Brett Coletta, Rhein Gibson and Jamie Arnold will be joined by fellow Aussies Cameron Davis and Curtis Luck at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship in Ohio with 25 more PGA TOUR cards on offer at the end of the three-event finals series.
Gibson and New Zealand’s Tim Wilkinson already secured their path back to the PGA TOUR by finishing in the top 25 at the end of the regular season, the top 75 on the Korn Ferry Tour and PGA TOUR players ranked 126-200 on the Order of Merit.
Percy has played just four events since suffering a fractured wrist whilst on a family holiday in April but his strong start to 2019 ensured he finished the regular season in 58th position to earn a place in the finals.
A PGA TOUR regular since 2010, Percy had two top-10 and two top-20 finishes in his opening six events of the year to sit 16th on the moneylist prior to his accident.
Tied for 17th upon his return in June at the REX Hospital Open, Percy was forced to withdraw after one round of the BMW Charity Pro-Am and was tied for 44th in his last start at the TPC Colorado Championship on July 14.
The 45-year-old played all four events of the Korn Ferry Tour finals in 2018 but missed the cut at both the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship and the Tour Championship.
Despite being unable to retain their PGA TOUR cards in their rookie seasons in 2019, Davis and Luck return to the Scarlet Course at Ohio State University Golf Club with fond memories of their performance 12 months earlier.
By finishing third Davis wrapped up a promotion to the main tour at the first event of the 2018 finals while Luck had to wait just a little longer, his tie for fifth putting him in position to ultimately secure his PGA TOUR card also.
Although they have already secured status for 2020 on the PGA TOUR, both Gibson and Wilkinson can improve their category status with strong showings throughout the finals.
