US based Sydney golfer, Cameron Davis, recorded his 4th PGA Tour top ten of 2022 when he finished in a share of 8th at the John Deere Classic in Silvis, Illinois.
Davis’ last round of 68 improved his standing from an overnight 10th but it was a frustrating run for him over the final nine holes as missed several makeable opportunities in a run of ten straight pars to finish after starting with three birdies in his first eight holes.
The weekend at the TPC Deere Run was significantly better than that he produced a week ago in Hartford, having contended there early before a disappointing final 36 holes.
Davis will move to 81st in the Fedex Cup standing and with just a month to go until the finals begin in just over one month’s time he is well placed to progress into well into the final stages of the FedEx Cup.
The 2016 World Amateur Individual Champion and a member of the Australian winning Eisenhower Trophy team that same year would win the 2017 Australian Open just over a year later and made his way on to the PGA Tour for the 2019 season.
The 27-year old’s PGA Tour career earnings to date are now beyond US$5.5 million but he is clearly improving each year and appears to be well established as a PGA Tour member and on track for a very successful career.
The winner J.T. Poston won his second PGA Tour title having won the Wyndham Championship in 2019 and he also earns a start at the Open Championship as a result of his top three finish of those not otherwise qualified for St Andrews along with Christiaan Bezuidenhout and Emiliano Grillo.
