GREENSBORO, N.C., Aug. 17 (UPI) -- John Huston, going for a spot in the lucrative FedEx Cup, grabbed a share of the lead Friday after two rounds of the Wyndham Championship at Greensboro, N.C.
The first FedEx Cup in PGA Tour history begins next week, with 144 players competing in a series of four tournaments for a top prize of $10 million.
Huston began this week in 217th place on the points' list, and needs to climb 73 spots to earn a berth in next week's Barclays Classic. A win in Greensboro would vault him into the top 100.
Petrovic and Hansen are also currently outside the top 144, but could claim a spot in the FedEx Cup with a high finish in this event.
