2012 Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Classic Update: Leaderboard

A NUMBER of US PGA Tour cards hang in the balance at the 2012 Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Classic in Florida this week, the last event of the season.

Many players are still vying to finish in the top 125 on the money list to earn their cards for 2013.

The magic 125 number is even more important this season given, essentially, fewer starts next year for those who finish outside the top 125 because of the structural changes to the schedule.

There are nine Australians playing in the event with only Robert Allenby (108th) assured of a place next year.

The others are Rod Pampling (124th), Nick O’Hern (147th), Stuart Appleby (162nd) Nathan Green (165th), Matt Goggin (176th), Matt Jones (177th), Gavin Coles (179th) and Steve Bowditch (184th).

O’Hern and Goggin were doing the best of the Aussies after the first round, shooting 3-under 69s to be five strokes behind leader, Charlie Wi of Korea who finished with a 64.

Looking for back-to-back victories, Tommy “Two-gloves” Gainey and Columbia Camilo Villegas were a stroke behind Wi on 7-under.

Rod Pampling was doing what he needs to do to retain his spot on 2-under while the other Aussies have work to do.

The event is  being telecast in Australia on Fox Sports from 5am – 8am.
