Curtis Luck makes a battle in New Orleans today.

Curtis Luck & # 39; s rookie US PGA Tour season continues to build momentum with a career-best finish in New Orleans.

He played with a good mate, American Hank Lebioda, in the team format of the Zurich Classic, Luck finished in a share of the fifth.

Happiness deserved the greatest control of his season ($ US163,338), but more importantly, the FedEx Cup points he threw into the pocket catapulted him into the 136th position in the season standings, eventually putting him in the top 125 had to end to keep his card

While the Western Australian was happy with those attributes, he was happy with the & # 39; positive trend & # 39; which is building its season with four consecutive cuts, including a T13 finish at the tough Valspar Championship in March.

"I still wrap my head around where I am and see my name (on scoreboards), so I'm happy with the progress," Luck said.

"I recently looked at some statistics and it looks like I played a few good rounds every week, but they usually got up early and not so much on the weekend.

"But it tells me that I am not too far away and if I can make three or even four good ones every week, then I should be there.

"I haven't put together that entire week yet, but it's there and I'm learning so much at the same time, so it's definitely heading in the right direction."

Happiness was diplomatic in postponing to Lebioda as the powerhouse of their mating.

"Frankly, the best thing I did all week was to choose Hank as my partner," Luck joked.

"He was very good this week, especially (in the first round quadball), when I didn't know if I even had my name on the card.

"But we did very well in the second round (quads) and went a bit through the field.

"It's quite interesting to play alternative recordings, because you can get out of the rhythm if you're not careful. For example, I didn't really take a shot today for about nine holes and you can get cold if you don't get on top of it sitting. "

Luck played a great fall shot on the last to within 3m, from which Lebioda hit birdie for the pair to close with a 71 and reach 20 under, six back from runaway champions Jon Rahm and the reviving Ryan Palmer.

Of the other Aussies in Louisiana, Matt Jones worked with J.J. Spaun finished at 16 under and T22, while the teams of Rod Pampling and John Senden, Adam Scott and Jason Day, plus the teams in which Cam Smith and Cam Davis played a role, all missed the cut.
