Hardy was doing the best but just went bogey triple he’s tied with ADDC at -3 and t55 who has an eagle and a couple birdies today as well as lots of red and is playing decent. Detry is playing ok and is -5 and t43 overall

Par on 18 to get to the clubhouse at -22. Kevin Velo needs a birdie on 18 to force a playoff.

Kevin Velo birdied the playoff hole, Campbell shot par. Velo wins the tourney after being 4 strokes back thru 16...

The solo 2nd moves campbell to 7th in the KFT standings, so he is in good shape going forward. But what a tough way to lose...

Chokejob by Campbell. Instead of $180k and 500 points he got $90k and 300 points.

Glad to see him do so well this tournament. Hope he can keep it up for a long season ahead. Earn those points and get that card!

Hardy +5 and in last place in 70 man field. So far Nick hasn't taken advantage of being in several of the elevated smaller field events...86th in FedEx standings...Detry 26th.

Starting with the Arnold Palmer Invitational (next Sig event), the top 10 in the Fedex Cup standings that weren't in the Top 50 last year will get in. That puts Detry in good position but will make it tough on Hardy.

Both will play in The Players in March (along w/ Strick if he enters), but neither are qualified for any majors at this point. Detry should still get into the PGA Championship, and could qualify for others if he gets his world ranking up (and possibly the Olympics).

Brian Campbell finished with an eagle on 18 to pull within 1 stroke of the lead at the Argentina Open. He finished in a two-way tie for third, which moved him up to 4th in the KFT Points List. Great start to the season for Brian, in the drivers seat to get back to the Tour!

Great job by ADDC, finishing at T6 in Puerto Rico. By far his best finish on the Tour, he also climbed into the top 200 in the world rankings (#187). Hopefully a sign of things to come.

Also congrats to Dylan Meyer, who made his first KFT cut in two years (T67 in Chile). It would be awesome to see Dylan return to form, he's definitely been putting in the work.

The Players Championship starts Thursday with Detry, Hardy and Stricker in the field. I just checked the OWGR website, it's been almost three years since Strick has played a PGA Tour event (including majors). Very curious to see how well he performs in a field featuring 28 of the top 30, given how dominant he has been in the Champions Tour.

Hardy opened with a double-double, so unfortunately he won't be hanging around for the weekend. Hopefully he pulls out of his mini-funk soon - it definitely helps to be exempt thru 2025.

Strick and Detry will tee off in the next couple hours.
