So far, Charlie Wi has had a pretty good run through the PGA TOUR Playoffs for the FedExCup. He's tied for 27th at The Barclays and 18th at the Deutsche Bank Championship, which was his 10th top-25 finish of a fourth straight $1 million season.
But if the 38-year-old is going to play in his first TOUR Championship presented by Coca-Cola, he needs to finish 11th or better this week at Cog Hill. Wi, who entered the week ranked 37th in the FedExCup, has made some headway toward that goal during the first round, too.
The South Korean, who now makes his home in California, is 3 under through 16 holes at the BMW Championship. He's four strokes off the lead held by Matt Kuchar and tied for fifth.
