The simplest way to describe Troy Merritt’s future right now is “uncertain.” His final-round 67 was good enough to move him into a tie for 30th – for now – but it might not be enough to land him in the top 125 on the money list. As of right now, Merritt is projected to finish at 125th on the money list. But if Johnson Wagner, who double-bogeyed the 16th hole, makes a birdie he could bump Merritt from the top 125.
“I’m pretty well drained,” Merritt told GOLF CHANNEL following his round. “It’s been a long week. I’m not relieved by any sense … And I still gotta go play the Kodak Challenge. Nothing is really sinking in right now, except my future is in Johnson’s hand with two holes to play.” -- Brian Wacker
