Percy headed back to PGA Tour

Australian Cameron Percy has all but secured his PGA Tour card for 2013 after finishing in a tie for second at the WNB Golf Classic on Sunday. Percy fired a two-under 70 on the final day of the tournament in Texas as he ended just one shot behind eventual winner, Luke Guthrie of the United States. The Victorian could have won the event if it were not for bogeys on holes 15 and 16 but he would still be pleased as he prepares to do battle with the likes of Tiger Woods next year. Percy appeared a certainty to win a PGA Tour card a few weeks ago but his form heading into the event had not been his best. He was terrific in Texas however, shooting rounds of 68, 68, 66 and 70 in an impressive performance. Guthrie won the event with an overall score of 17 under, boosted by a last-day 66 as he notched his sixth top-10 finish in seven starts this season. Joining Percy in the tie for second was New Zealand&aposs Danny Lee, who could only manage an even-par 72 on Sunday. American duo Brett Wetterich and Aaron Goldberg ended in a tie for fourth, two shots off the pace. Australian Steve Allan finished in a tie for 20th, nine shots behind the eventual winner.
