Michael Letzig entered the Wyndham Championship as the FedExCup bubble boy. He ranked No. 125 in the standings, and as such, he knew he had to play well.
Each of the last two years, five players have played their way into the PGA TOUR Playoffs for the FedExCup. So Letzig knew he had to perform this week at Sedgefield – and he has.
The New Mexico grad is 4 under through 10 holes right now and 13 under for the tournament. He’s currently tied for sixth, but that will likely change quickly as the leaders get on the course.
He climbed steadily in the projected FedExCup rankings, though, each of the first three days. So it looks likely that Letzig will be headed to New Jersey for next week’s Barclays. – Helen Ross
