It’s crunch time for Canada’s David Hearn this week at the Wyndham Championship at Sedgefield Country Club, in Greensboro, N.C.
The Brantford, Ont., native is one of several players in the field this week at the Wyndham Championship trying to advance to golf’s post-season or earn full exemption on the PGA TOUR for 2018.
The top-125 on the FedEx Cup points list at the conclusion of the tournament qualify for the first event of the playoffs next week, The Northern Trust in Old Westbury, New York, and also will be fully exempt on PGA TOUR next year, if they aren’t already.
Hearn is currently ranked 121st in the FedEx Cup standings and with every player from No. 116 to 135 in the field at the Wyndam Championship, he will need to have a solid week to ensure he stays inside the top-125 and qualifies for The Northern Trust.

Hearn has made the playoffs the last five years. His career best finish in the FedEx Cup was in 2015 when he finished 55th.
Two other Canadians will be in the field this week Nick Taylor, from Abbotsford B.C., and Ottawa’s Brad Fritsch.
Taylor is ranked comfortably inside the top-125 at No. 84 while Fritsch will need a magical performance this week as he comes to Greensboro ranked No. 205 in the FedEx Cup standings.
