With a strong T-9th finish at the Deutsche Bank Championship, Sean O'Hair has lived to play another week of the FedEx Cup play-offs.
When week two the Cup began in Boston, O'Hair, 25, from West Chester, ranked 68th in FedEx Cup points, barely over the Top 70 cut -off that would advance to week three in Chicago. He made a significant jump, though, with rounds of 68-66-74-68, for an 8-under total for the week. The 74 on Saturday derailed any chance he had of contending. Still, he left Boston ranked 58th in points, with a little cushion.
O'Hair will need an even better week at the BMW Championship to have any chance to crack to Top 30 who will advance to the fourth and final week at the Tour Championship in Atlanta.
