Published 8:58 pm Tuesday, August 15, 2017

Andrew Landry missed the cut in last week’s Tour event in Springfield, Missouri, and saw his lead atop the money list shrink to less than $18,000 over Chesson Hadley.

Four other players are within $25,000 of Landry, and there are 11 who could pass him by winning this week at the News Sentinel Open in Knoxville, Tenn. After Knoxville, one tournament remains in the regular season.

Rain, rain and more rain limited the daily games at Babe Zaharias last week.
