2012 PGA TOUR Rookie Bud Cauley begins his first FedExCup Playoffs in 35th on the Points List. He has finished in the top 5 in 3 of his last 4 starts. After going through a bit of a lull this summer, he went to see his coach and worked on a number of swing issues. It felt great to be able to have him watch his swing and since then he has been able to go out on the PGA TOUR and play well.
He has never been a fan of setting specific goals for himself and instead he just tries to go out and play the best he can. While he certainly would like to win before 2012 is over, he is happy with his performance this year and he looks forward to trying to advance his way through the playoffs. Cauley also knows that he is in the running for Rookie of the Year and while he appreciates being considered, he knows that he has to continue to play well in order to continue to be a candidate.
He had the chance to be paired with Sergio Garcia in the final group in the final round of the Wyndham Championship and it was a great experience to be able to play well and play next to a person as talented as Sergio. It was also very educational to be able to watch Sergio play as well as he did and go on to win because he knows more about what he needs to do to win.
When asked about David Faircloth who went from the pro-am to Sergio’s bag, Cauley said that he must have been the only person at Sedgefield Country Club to not know the story. Even when he was playing with Sergio he was not aware of the story but once he finally heard about it, he was certainly impressed.
