Fore Long Island

Long Island golf courses and golfers mixed with a splash of PGA and other pro tours.

Arjun Atwal off to good start, up 2

 

       Arjun Atwal, the former Clarke High and Nassau CC star, is 1 under par through three holes of the final round in Greensboro. He's 18-under-par and has a two stroke lead of the Wyndham Championship.

        A win for Atwal would be huge for his career. He would gain a two-year Tour exemption, no small matter for a golfer who lost his Tour card because he didnt earn enough this year on a medical exemption (coming off a serious shoulder injury). Plus, he gets into the 2011 Masters.

         He isn't eligible for the Barclays next week because he is not a PGA Tour member and thus not eliglble for the Tour playoffs. He got into the Wyndham as a Monday qualifier.
