NZ golfer bids for PGA tour card

12:19 pm on 13 September 2010

The New Zealand golfer Bradley Iles has given himself a chance to secure a PGA tour card for next year after finishing tied for second in the Nationwide Tour's Utah Championship.

Iles started the day in the lead, but could only manage an even par 71 today to be overtaken by American Michael Putnam who won by 3 shots.

His result moves him up to 33rd in the money leaders list with the top-25 qualifying for next year's PGA tour.

There are seven more events to go on the Nationwide tour.
