Boo Weekley stood over a nine-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole. Make it, and he moves to 1 under for the tournament -- inside the projected Deutsche Bank cutline. Miss it, and he remains at even par, outside the cutline.
Weekley missed it. As a result, he’ll need to hope the projected cutline drops to even par later on today. Otherwise, his Playoffs are over.
Weekley entered this week ranked 96th in points. He had to make the cut at TPC Boston to give himself any hope of accumulating enough FedExCup points to move inside the top 70 that advances to next week’s BMW Championship.
But by missing the cut, Weekley will earn no points, meaning his Playoffs will be over.
J.J. Henry, Paul Goydos and Chris Riley are all in the same position as Weekley, although they are still on the course. Each one is sitting at even par. If they can move inside the cutline, they’ll have the next two rounds to save their Playoffs season.
