Two Aussies bound for 2010 PGA Tour

Finishing in the Top 25 money winners on the US Nationwide Tour ensures not only some decent money but a spot on the big show, the PGA Tour. Prior to the weekend, six Australians had a shot of making the big time but only two made it – Michael Sim and Cameron Percy.

The four Australians who occupied positions 25 to 28 before the end of season tournament all missed out. Alistair Presnell, Scott Gardiner, Andrew Buckle and Gavin Coles will all try now to squeeze onto the tour via the pressure packed Q-School or come back and try again next year.

Alistair Presnell can consider himself a little unlucky after finishing tied for 19th on the weekend but still being forced out of 25th spot and Andrew Buckle imploded on his back nine in the final round last week when he really should have had his tour card all sewn up.

Cameron Percy finished in 8th spot and will now join fellow Melbournian on tour, Geoff Ogilvy whom he grew up playing with and beating as an amateur.

Michael Sim dominated the tour like no one has done before and finished up as leading money winner. He had already got himself a start with the big boys after winning three times this year and earned himself a ‘battlefield promotion’. This turned out to be somewhat of a joke as there was only one event but the Scottish born Sim could well be set to be one of the game’s great players.
