Playoff spots once again on the line at Wyndham

  • Text size: + -

GREENSBORO (AP) -- Time is running out for some players at the Wyndham Championship.

For U.S. Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III, there are precious few weeks left to complete his roster. For others, the need is more pressing: Play well, or forget about making the FedEx Cup playoff field.

Jhonattan Vegas came to Sedgefield Country Club at No. 124 on the points list. The top 125 qualify for The Barclays, and Vegas said holding that spot "is on your mind the whole time.''

Love, who announces his four captain's picks Sept. 4, played the Wednesday pro-am with Chris Paul, a local favorite who helped lead the U.S. Olympic basketball team to gold in London.

Love says they discussed handling pressure and jokes that "now I've got to learn how to coach.''
