The winding road to St Andrews


NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. – There is more at stake this week at Aronimink Golf Club than a shinny trophy and a big check for a few guys – including front-runner Justin Rose and Jason Day.

Both players are vying for their second victories in 2010 and a spot in the field at the British Open via a mini-money list that began at The Players Championship or a top finish this week or next week at the John Deere Classic.

Rose is currently first on the mini-money list and, if he were to win AT&T National, he would qualify through that category, which would make Day or Charlie Wi, currently tied for second place with the Australian, eligible as the top finisher within the top 5 not otherwise exempt. If not, both Day and Wi have committed to next week’s Deere Classic and could attempt to finish in the top 5 there.
