Bhullar probably needs a top-10 finish to break into the top 100 I suppose?

Long wait for someone new to achieve that (Randhawa was probably the last new entry?)

Wow! What a round by Gaganjeet Bhullar. 9 under brought him right into the top 10. Till yesterday, -9 was the course record, but today the course record has gone lower. Believe it or not, Bhullars -9 was only the 3rd best. The best round was played by Brandt SNEDEKER who flirted with a magical 59, a milestone reached by very few players, but missed it by inches and finished with a 12 under 60. The round took him from T38 to 7th. The next best round was by Lee Westwood who was -11 for the day and who jumped from T12 to right at T1.

Gagandeep true to his words (see my last post) went for a low round and succeeded as he moved from T27 to T8 with a 9 under round. C'mon Bhullar! repeat this once again and you will finish in top 5.

Gagandeep Bhullar finished T-18 after a par effort on the final day. Apparently, he struck the ball well but just didn't make any putts as he took 32 putts in the final round after an amazing 21 putts in the 3rd round. Seems pretty clear that he has a PGA tour ready game and look forward to seeing him there soon.

The last round putting problem kept him outside top 10, however, T18 in this stellar field is still a great result. Congratulations Bhullar!

And the reward for this performance is that he cracks the top 100!!!! The latest ranking shows his world ranking as 98. :notworthy:
And the T18 finish also gave a cool pay check of $75,000 :clap:

Here is a report on Bhullars exploits.
