The game plan for The Deutsche Bank Championship at the end of the day had to be, “If you are not in contention, then at least make the Top 70 in the Fed Ex Point Standings to advance to the BMW Championship.”
When the smoke cleared, three Yellow Jacket golfers made the cut, one was sent home.
The one golfer that did not make the cut was Stewart Cink. Clink finished 80th in Fed Ex Points and thus did not qualify to move on to the third leg of the playoffs.
He finished The Deutsche Bank champion at 1-under par, which was good for 50th place. Cink totaled 866 Fed Ex Cup Points on the season, and accumulated $929,166 in winnings which was good for 103rd on the PGA Money List.
Now that Cink has been ousted, only three Georgia Tech golfers remain in the Fed Ex Cup Playoffs.
Matt Kuchar, is in the Top Five for Fed Ex Cup Points with 2,618. He shot 5-under-par in The Deutsche Bank Championship.
Cameron Tringale is sitting 18th in the Fed Ex Cup Standings with 1,871 points. He shot a dismal 4-over-par at TPC Boston but still had accumulated enough points to advance through to the BMW Championship.
Last but not least, Chesson Hadley continues his wonderful rookie season and advances to the BMW Championship with 1,040 Fed Ex Cup Points good for 57th in the point standing.
Hadley shot 9-under-par at TPC Boston which was good for 9th place. Hadley has had a stellar season that has seen him pile up $1,541,316.
Next up for Kuchar, Tringale, and Hadley is the BMW Championship which starts September 4th – September 7th, and will be played at Cherry Hills Country Club in Cherry Hills Village, Colorado .
