It’s likely Sang-Moon Bae’s parents told him growing up about the problem of waiting until the last minute to do things; but they likely never said anything about waiting until the final hole.
Bae finished strong at the Wyndham Championship on Sunday, giving himself a six-spot boost in the final regular-season FedExCup standings, which was enough to get him into the field of 125 for the post-season.
Bae climbed from 126th to 120th to qualify for the The Barclays, which begin this Thursday as the first leg of the Cup, won last year by Sweden’s Henrik Stenson.
Stenson is in the mix to defend the title, but he’ll have to be as hot this year as he was in 2013 down the stretch, considering he starts the four-week run in 70th place.
Bae’s last-minute qualification knocked out Nicholas Thompson from contention. Thompson had been 123rd in the standings, but fell to 126th, one point behind the final qualifier, Robert Allenby.
