DeLaet advances inside the bubble

Watch: DeLaet birdies No. 18

Graham DeLaet birdied the 18th hole from 24 feet, 10 inches during Sunday's final round of The Barclays.

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. – Graham DeLaet entered this week outside the top 100 bubble, but has played his way into next week’s  Deutsche Bank Championship … and perhaps beyond.

The 30-year-old Canadian shot a sizzling 6-under 65 in Sunday’s final round of The Barclays. That leaves him at 5 under for the tournament.

When he walked off the 18th green, he was tied for sixth on the leaderboard. Just as important, he was projected to finish 49th in FedExCup points after starting the week 106th.

“A lot of people think there's too much volatility in it, but it kind of worked in my favor,” DeLaet said. “One good event, you can really catapult yourself up.

“Now I feel like I've got a chance to get in the TOUR Championship, whereas this morning, i was just hoping to play next week.”

DeLaet was 2 over on his round after five holes, but he turned it around on the final 13 holes. He birdied three of his last four holes before making the turn, then shot a back-nine 30 that included three birdies and an eagle at the par-4 15th when he holed out from 152 yards.

DeLaet shot an opening 4-over 75 on Thursday but bounced back with a 67 in the second round before shooting a 1-over 72 on Saturday that included a disappointing double bogey on the 18th hole.
