Having amassed all of his allotted invites on the PGA Tour, Brooks lay just 6.75 FedEx Cup points short of receiving his special temporary membership on the PGA Tour.
After taking some time off to re-charge, Brooks competed at the Monday Qualifier for the Zurich Classic in New Orleans. Carding a round of –8 (64) at The La Tour Golf Club, Brooks was co-medalist, resulting in his inclusion in the tournament field for the week ahead. A finish of 64th or better would give him the points required to receive temporary membership.
Brooks was not focusing on the points but more so on success in the tournament itself. Finishing tied 21st (on –9) he secured the finish he was after, and in doing so, received his special temporary membership from the PGA Tour.
This season Brooks has now earned 320 FedEx Cup points and $460,687 through 9 events. He is in great shape to continue the fine form and earn his 2014/2015 PGA Tour card.
Well done Brooks!!
