Cauley, Allenby giving ground

ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. –- Bud Cauley’s bid for a top-10 finish and a spot in next week’s Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Classic took a hit with back-to-back bogeys on holes 13 and 14 at Sea Island. The 21-year-old is now tied for 27th 6 under. Regardless of his finishing position this week, it looks like Cauley’s going to secure a TOUR card for the 2012 season. All he has to do is earn as much money as No. 125 on the money list after next week’s event. His season earnings thus far would rank him No. 114. Should he not qualify for the event at Disney, Cauley has already committed to the Winn-Dixie Jacksonville Open presented by Planters -- the Nationwide Tour event at TPC Sawgrass near his hometown. Robert Allenby, who was 5 under on his round and 9 under for the week, surrendered three shots with a triple-bogey on the par-3 13th. He earned one back with a birdie on No. 14 to get back to 7 under, tied for 19th. Winless on the TOUR since 2001, the Aussie finished in a tie for third here last year.
