With Martin Piller's win last week in Omaha, there are now two players -- along with Tommy Gainey -- eligible for a battlefied promotion to the PGA TOUR with their next victory.
Only Piller and Gainey will have a chance to finalize their 2011 TOUR card this week as the Nationwide Tour heads to Wichita, Kansas for the Preferred Health Systems Wichita Open, but it's never easy to win three times in a season on the Nationwide Tour.
Piller, who came from behind to get his most recent win, said that low scores changed his mindset to focus on one thing: attack every hole.
"I knew today that par was not going to be good and I knew that I was going to have to go out and make something happen," he said after Sunday's round. "I didn't have a number in mind. The only number I had in mind was one."
The tournament this week is the fifth week of an important six-week stretch as players continue to jockey for position inside the top 25 on the money list.
There are 11 tournaments left before the Nationwide Tour Championship at Daniel Island in Charleston, S.C.
Here are this week's Preferred Health Systems Wichita Open power rankings.
