I know, I know, the golf season is winding down, the NFL is hitting it’s stride, and baseball is in it’s showcase event right now, but did anyone catch the Frys.com Open this past week? There was quite a bit that went on there.
Rocco stepped up with an ace and four eagles enroute to a BIG win. Prior to this win Rocco was 182nd on the money list, but this win moved him to 70th place and gave him a place on the tour for 2011. Without a strong finish, Rocco was headed to Q-School, and had already sent his check in! Congrats Rocco!
Simillarly, David Duval made a strong push in the Frys. His rapid rise & fall has been well documented and my hat is off to him with his perseverance to get back into the mix. On Sunday he tied for 6th which moved him up 10 spots to 99th on the money list. This almost certainly locks him in with a full Tour status for next year.
