FARMINGDALE, N.Y. – Bob Estes had visions of winning The Barclays after 36 holes. Instead, he’ll get a spot in next week’s Deutsche Bank Championship.
Estes, who started the week ranked 103rd in FedExCup points, shot a final-round 3-over 74 to finish at 3 under for the tournament, tied for 10th. That will project him to 62nd in the FedExCup standings, which puts him in next week’s event and gives him an excellent shot at reaching the 70-man BMW Championship.
Estes was tied for third after 36 holes at 7 under but shot 72-74 on the weekend to drop out of contention.
Still, he will make his first start at the Deutsche Bank Championship since 2009.
