WITH the final golf Major of 2014 done and dusted the US PGA Tour gets to the pointy end of its season with the last regular tour event this week before the FedEx Cup playoffs begin in earnest next week.

The Wyndham Championship at the Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, North Carolina, is the last chance for many golfers to get into the all-important top 125 in the tour money list.

Those who make it are assured of a start on the tour next season and also take part in the lucrative playoff series, with the final 30 playing off for US$10 million in the Tour Championship.

Those who don’t make the 125 have to take their chances of earning a tour card in the Web.com Tour playoffs.

So while many of the big stars will be absent this week and resting up for The Barclays in New Jersey next week, others will be desperate for a good showing.

Aussies taking part this week include Aaron Baddeley, Steve Bowditch and Stuart Appleby, who are already assured of finishing in the 125; and Robert Allenby, Greg Chalmers and Bronson La Cassie, who need varying results this weekend.

Allenby (122nd) needs at least to make the cut while Chalmers (128th) requires  something more and La Cassie (185th) will be looking to the heavens – probably a top two finish will do.

The defending champion this week is the very self-assured Patrick Reed with other likely contenders including Brandt Snedeker, Nick Watney, Webb Simpson, Ernie Els, Tim Clark and Hideki Matsuyama.
