Rockford PRO/AM golfers have successful weekend

Posted:

It was another solid weekend of results for the players that are tentatively committed to the Rockford ProAm.

Kenny Perry was able to win his first major at the Senior Players Championship.  He's now 1st in the Charles Schwab Cup and 3rd on the Championship Tour money list at $999,550.  The win will earn him a spot back into the Players Championship next year at TPC Sawgrass.

Jordan Spieth is continuing his unbelievable rookie season.  His 6th place finish at Congressional has him up to $1.153 million which would be good for 55th on the money list.  He'll again play at the Greenbrier Classic this week looking to become the 1st teenage winner on Tour in 82 years. 

Brittany Lincicome had a solid U.S. Open finishing tied for 9th and locking up a spot on the 2013 Solheim Cup team. 

Morgan Hoffmann had his 2nd consecutive top 10 at Congressional.  He's now up to $722,000 on the year and secure to be back on Tour in 2013.

Right now, 19 pros are set for the ProAm, but could still change depending on results leading up to the event.  Ken Duke is 79 Fed Ex Points shy of Charles Howell III for the last spot to get in the British Open.  He'll need a top 5 finish, and some help, this week at the Greenbrier Classic to qualify.  The Fed Ex Cup qualification ends after the Greenbrier this week.  The winner of the John Deere Classic also automatically qualifies.
