At 123rd on the money list entering the week, a good finish this week would lock up Troy Merritt’s PGA TOUR card for next season, and he’s now one round away from that after a 64 Friday moved him into contention.
Merritt, by the way, played collegiately at Boise State, so he’s more familiar with the school’s blue turf than he is Bermudagrass -- “First time I saw it was three or four years ago,” Merritt said.
Since then, though, Merritt, who was bogey-free Saturday, has adjusted quite well, winning on Bermudagrass what he estimates to be a half-dozen times. And now he has a chance to again, which would more than take care of his position on the money list, too.
