The first of the four Web.Com Tour finals has reached the halfway stage on Fort Wayne in Indiana where three golfers are tied at 11 under par and have a one shot lead.
South African and 2008 Masters winner Trevor Immelman, Web.Com Tour money list leader, Michael Putnam and Patrick Cantlay who has battled injury for the last few months have the lead at the Sycamore Hills Golf Club.
With 25 of this week’s field already assured of a PGA Tour card but playing to establish their ranking amongst that 25 over the four event final series, a further 25 cards for the 2014 PGA Tour are up for grabs so much is at stake for the field of 129.
Those two milestones will be determined by money accumulated over the four event series.
The leading Australian through 36 holes is Scott Gardiner who is in a share of 8th position and well placed to regain his PGA Tour playing rights although there is plenty of golf to be played yet.
Alistair Presnell is in a share of 20th, Danny Lee and 34th, Cameron Percy, Nick Flanagan and Tim Wilkinson 44th, while Adam Crawford, Rod Pampling, Matthew Goggin, Nick O’Hern and Rod Pampling just made the cut.
Ashley Hall, Steve Alker, Bronson La Cassie, Nathan Green and Aron Price have missed the cut.
