Sep. 01, 2018
BEECHWOOD, Ohio (AP) — Kramer Hickok shot a 2-under 68 on Saturday to keep a one-stroke lead in the DAP Championship, the second of four Web.com Tour Finals events that will determine 25 PGA Tour cards.
One of 25 players who have already earned PGA Tour cards through the Web.com Tour's regular-season money list, Hickok had a 12-under 198 total at Canterbury Golf Club. He matched the course record Thursday with a 63, and had a 67 on Friday.
Hickok was 23rd on the regular-season list, and jumped from 23rd to 13th last week in Ohio with a tie for 14th in the series opener.
Germany's Stephan Jaeger remained second after a 68.
South Korea's Sangmoon Bae, a two-time PGA Tour winner, was third at 9 under after a 69.
Six-time PGA Tour winner Hunter Mahan had a 65 to move into a tie for fourth at 8 under with five-time PGA Tour champion Ben Crane (69), Justin Hueber (66), Brian Campbell (67), Peter Malnati (68) and Matt Jones (69).
The series features the top 75 players — Hueber was 42nd, Campbell 75th — from the Web.com regular-season money list, and Nos. 126-200 — Crane was 148th, Jones 151st, Mahan 159th, Malnati 161st, Jaeger 165th and Bae 207th — in the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup standings.
Hickok and the other top-25 finishers on the Web.com regular-season money list are competing against each other for tour priority, with regular-season earnings counting in their totals. The other players are fighting for 25 cards based on series earnings.
