Presnell in line for PGA Tour promotion

Melbourne’s Alistair Presnell has turned his season on its head over the past fortnight, recording a 2nd place on Sunday in the Miccosukee Championship in Miami, Florida to vault into the Top 25 on the money list.

This result comes a week after a tie for 3rd at the Neediest Kids Championship in Maryland had broken a run of five missed cuts in his past six events.

Presnell shot a final round four under 67 to claim runner up honours behind American Shawn Stefani, who won in a canter by 5 shots.

It was Presnell’s best performance on the Web.Com Tour this season and his cheque for $64,800 lifted him from 39th to 19th on the money list with earnings of $187,342.

Presnell joins fellow Aussies Cameron Percy and Scott Gardiner in the all important Top 25 who at season’s end, will earn promotion to the PGA Tour in 2013.

Percy and Sydney’s Aron Price also finished inside the top 10, tied for 9th at 2 under with Gardiner and Steve Allan a shot back in a tie for 13th.

The Web.Com season concludes over the next fortnight with this week’s Winn-Dixie Jacksonville Open in Florida followed by the season finale Web.Com Tour Championship in Texas the following week.
