The third of four events in the Web.com Tour Finals, the DAP Championship in Beachwood, Ohio, was not a great one for pros with Oklahoma ties.
Former Tulsan Tag Ridings did make the cut, and his tie for 25th moved him up 13 spots into 52nd place. Like all the others, he is seeking a top-25 finish after the four events to give him full status on the PGA Tour for 2018. Ridings finished 156th on the PGA Tour money list in 2017, only the top 125 have full status for the following year.
A costly missed cut was suffered by Taylor Moore of Edmond, which dropped him from 24th and barely inside the top 25 to 36th entering the final event, the Web.com Tour Championship Sept. 28-Oct. 1 at Atlantic Beach (Fla.) Country Club.
Also missing the cut were Talor Gooch of Edmond, former Oklahoma State golfer Peter Uihlein, Rhein Gibson of Edmond and former University of Oklahoma golfer Abraham Ancer. Gooch and Ancer, however, have earned 2018 PGA Tour cards by finishing in the top 25 on the Web.com Tour regular season money list, while Uihlein has assured himself a card by winning the first of the four Finals events, he is still ranked No. 1 on the Finals list through three events and cannot drop out of the top 25.
Gibson is in a tie for 90th and would likely need a top-four finish this week to regain his card. PGA Tour communications staff told Golf Oklahoma a top four finish in any of the four events nearly assures the golfer of earning a top 25 finish in the Finals.
