It all comes down to the money title at Disney World. With Webb Simpson
earning $432,000 for his playoff loss at the McGladrey Classic, he is the new
money leader, but Luke Donald is chasing him down. Donald confirmed last week
via twitter that he was headed to Disney World to try and win the money
title. Donald has a chance to become the first player to ever win the money
title on both the PGA Tour and European Tour in the same season. Donald, who
hasn`t played Disney since 2003, trails Simpson by $363,029 so he`ll need to
step on the gas to get the Arnold Palmer Trophy. He leads by over a million
euros in the Race to Dubai. Last year, Robert Garrigus earned his first PGA
Tour victory and it came at the perfect time. He made the trip to the Magic
Kingdom at 122nd on the money list, but the win got him his card. It was
sweet redemption for Garrigus. Last year in Memphis, Garrigus triple-bogeyed
the 72nd hole with a three-shot lead, then lost a playoff to Lee Westwood.
With Garrigus safe with his playing privileges, it`s true, this is the last
PGA Tour event of the year, so that bubble for the top 125 on the money list
will burst for some. That`s the marker for keeping your tour card for next
year and James Driscoll is the official bubble boy. He is 125th in earnings
and in the field. The final two rounds will be played on the Magnolia course
after rotating the first two rounds on both the Magnolia and Palm layouts.
Golf Channel has all four rounds. Next week is the CIMB Asia Pacific Classic
in Malaysia. Ben Crane, who captured the McGladrey Classic in a playoff, won
the title one year ago.
