Scott Parel still in the running



OMAHA, Neb. — Augusta’s Scott Parel, who needs to move up three spots on the Tour’s money list to secure a 2014 PGA Tour card this weekend, shot 2-under-par 69 on Friday and made the cut in the Cox Classic at Champions Run.

Parel is tied for 29th place. He came into the final regular-season event 28th on the money list. The top 25 get their PGA Tour cards.

Fortunately for Parel, the Nos. 21, 22, 23, 24, 25 and 27th players on the money list missed the cut.

Brice Garnett shot 63 and is at 12-under 130, one shot ahead of six golfers, including Wes Roach, who is 26th on the money list.

Aiken native Matt Hendrix (67-73–140) and Aiken resident Kevin Kisner (74-70–144) missed the cut, which fell at 138.


CHAMPIONS TOUR: In Snoquaimie, Wash., Bart Bryant picked up where he left off last week.

Bryant, who won the Dick’s Sporting Goods Open for his first career Champions Tour title, shot 6-under-par 66 to lead after the first round of the Boeing Classic.

He has a one-shot lead over Duffy Waldorf and Bobby Clampett.


LPGA TOUR: In Edmonton, Alberta, Inbee Park, a six-time winner this season, is tied for the lead with Cristie Kerr in the Canadian Women’s Open.

Park shot 5-under 65 and Kerr had 66. They are at 8-under 132 for 36 holes.


EUROPEAN TOUR: In Gleneagles, Scotland, Ricardo Gonzalez shot a second consecutive 7-under 65, giving him a one-shot lead over Austria’s Bernd Wiesberger in the Johnnie Walker Championship.
