Eric Axley returns to Greensboro, North Carolina, for this week's Wyndham Championship and enters the fray 185th in the FedExCup standings.
Since the inception of the FEC Playoffs in 2007, Axley has qualified once, finishing 63rd in the final standings in 2008. Barring a win this week, his playoff-appearance resume will remain unchanged. Axley has one PGA TOUR title in 176 career starts, that coming in 2006 at the Valero Texas Open, a year too soon for FEC consideration. Two weeks later, he finished T3 at this tournament, when it was known as the Chrysler Classic of Greensboro, but it was at the former venue of Forest Oaks CC. That T3-showing however, remains his second-best career performance on TOUR to date and tops in five trips to the Piedmont Triad. He missed the cut here last year and in 2009, cashing a T41 in 2008. On the season, the 41-year-old has a pair of T22s (McGladrey, Puerto Rico Open) on 20 starts, missing 13 cuts.
