Olympic bronze-medalist Matt Kuchar conjured up a 1-under-par 36-35=71 in the final round of the BMW Championship for a four-day tally of 12-under 276, up one spot into a five-way T4, a distant 11 in arrears to overnight leader and champion Dustin Johnson.
The 38-year-old maintained his spot in the top 30 in the FedExCup standings, improving from 28th to 16th, and advances to the TOUR Championship for a seventh straight season. Whether he did enough to secure a Captain's Pick from skipper Davis Love III, we'll find out tomorrow, or at the very least, after East Lake in two weeks. The Georgia Tech alum began the final frame in a two-way T5 on 11-under after opening his eighth consecutive appearance in 68-69-68. He mustered just two birdie-4s at holes 9 and 11, outpacing a lone bogey-5 at the eighth. For the week, Kuchar was T2 in total birdies with 22, T7 in bogeys with six, and T45 in doubles with two, both in R2. It's his 10th top 10 of the season in 25 starts, rebounding from a T64 and T46 to begin the Playoffs.
