Young guns Cameron Davis and Curtis Luck are probably going to the secondary tour final to get their PGA Tour tickets for next season back after the regular season ended in North Carolina today.

Sydney’s Davis, 24, the 2018 Australian Open winner, had a great finish at the Wyndham Championship and finished with a 65 to finish 22nd.

But it was only enough to beat him with four places in the FedEx Cup rankings that determine playing futures, from 164th to 160th. Luck, who missed the North Carolina cut, finished in 175th place.

Only the top 125 has guaranteed playing rights for next season.

In his first year on tour, Davis made 13 cuts and earned $ US477,000, but his best finish was in eleventh place.

Fortunately for both, players who finish between the 125th and 200th will have the opportunity to advance to the Korn Ferry Tour final within 10 days, where they will have another chance to play back to the main tour. The top 25 earners in the final with three tournaments continue.

Six Australians achieved the number 125 under the leadership of Marc Leishman at number 12.

Aaron Baddeley has played his way back to the tour, finishing 112th despite the start of the season with only conditional status. Rod Pampling is on his way to the senior tour.

The PGA Tour playoffs, reduced to three tournaments this year, start this week with the Northern Trust in Liberty National.
