Day's positioning for the start of the FedEx Cup Playoffs at next week's St. Jude Championship in Memphis appears to be secure, however.

Min Woo Lee leans on Scott for guidance

  Min Woo Lee leans on Scott for guidance Emerging Australian golf star Min Woo Lee says he's leaning heavily on former world No.1 and esteemed countryman Adam Scott as he makes his way on the PGA Tour. In trying to gain his full playing card for the lucrative US tour season while retaining his rights to compete on the DP World Tour, Lee is following a path Scott paved early in his career.

He entered this week at No.115 in the points list, and the top 125 advance to the first playoff event.

World No.34 Kim, 20, would be leading the Wyndham Championship by four shots had he not opened Thursday's first round with a quadruple-bogey eight.

"All I did was laugh," Kim said of the quadruple bogey. "I didn't really take it -- it's just one bad hole. Told myself, you know what, I've got plenty of holes to bring it back if I just play well on my next 35 holes, and that's exactly what I did."

Already ranked No. 34 in the world, Kim is playing on a special temporary membership and is in line to earn his full PGA Tour card for next season.

Other players are vying to keep their cards by ensuring they qualify for the field of 125 players who'll play the first leg of the FedEx Cup Playoffs next week.

Moore entered the week No. 183 in the points standings. He's projected to leap to 68th thanks to his position at the Wyndham thus far.
