Leonard's bid comes up short

Justin Leonard entered the week 142nd in FedExCup points -- and he nearly played his way in. But a bogey on the 72nd hole ended his chances of playing The Barclays next week.

Leonard shot 69 and is currently in a tie for 17th, good for 50 FedExCup points. But it's not enough. Rookie William McGirt looks like he is going to hang onto the 125th and final spot.

"You know, I got a few weeks off now and I'll work on it," Leonard said. "I kind of figured I had to make, make another birdie in the last three holes and, you know, had good looks at it 16, 17, I hit two good putts."

For Leonard, the Fall Series awaits. He played three Fall events last year, and he said Sunday he will likely play in three more in 2011.
