CARMEL, Ind. – Rickie Fowler finally made it into the Tour Championship.
Defending FedEx Cup champion Bill Haas was left out of the 30-player field.
On a windy, wacky Sunday at Crooked Stick Golf Club, the difference between qualifying for the playoff finale in Atlanta and missing out was determined on the closing holes.
Fowler shot a 2-over 74 but had a birdie and three pars on the last three holes to end his run of bad luck at the BMW Championship. Haas, trying to become the first defending champ to play in the Tour Championship, bogeyed four of his last five, finished with a 78 and missed the cutoff by a shot.
And Scott Piercy overcame a two-stroke penalty Saturday and two bogeys on the back nine to finish with a 68 to get the 30th spot at East Lake.
