A sole win does not a season make.
When Cameron Davis followed up a top-five finish at the Knoxville Open in just his third start on the Web.com Tour with a win two starts later in Nashville, a path straight to the PGA Tour was laying out before him.
But missed cuts in each of his past two starts has seen the Australian Open champion fall to 23rd on the Web.com Tour money list and in real danger of watching a guaranteed PGA Tour card in 2019 slip through his fingers.
Making his debut at the LECOM Health Challenge at the Peek ‘n’ Peak Resort in Findley Lake, New York this week, Davis will be desperate to bounce back after squandering an opening round of 66 last week to shoot 75 in the second round and miss playing on the weekend.
Another eager for redemption will be Rhein Gibson who let a golden opportunity to solidify his place within the top 25 last week pass him by with a disappointing final round.
Tied for the lead through 54 holes, Gibson could only card 74 that saw him drop to a tie for 26th and outside the top 25 on the money list.
Assisting Gibson’s ability to turn things around quickly will be the good memories of his runner-up finish in this event two years ago.
Jamie Arnold, best of the Aussies last week and also top Aussie in this event last year, can further improve his current standing of 61st on the money list. Other Australasians in the field this week are Kiwis Steven Alker and Tim Wilkinson along with Brett Drewitt, Nick Flanagan and Curtis Luck.
