Sunday is important for Teater

By Zak Kozuchowski, PGATOUR.COM Josh Teater’s third-round 66 put him within two shots of the lead at the Reno-Tahoe Open, but more importantly it got him one step closer to getting back to the PGA TOUR Playoffs for the FedExCup. Teater, 32, is currently No. 124 in the FedExCup standings. With only two weeks remaining before the start of the Playoffs, tomorrow is especially important for the 2009 Nationwide Tour graduate. “I've been pretty close to playing well the last few months,” Teater said. “You know, Thursday wasn't great, but I held it together. The last two days have been good.” Teater made it to the second event of the Playoffs last season. The Kentucky native shot an opening 72 at Montreux, but fought back with a 67 on Friday and eight birdies on Saturday. He contended earlier this season at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, where he finished tied for 16th. He also had a chance to win at the RBC Canadian Open two weeks ago, where he finished tied for 13th. If Teater were to win tomorrow, he would earn a spot in next week’s PGA Championship at Atlanta Athletic Club. He could also potentially move as high as 70th in the FedExCup standings.
