Roger Sloan waited until the last day of the regular season to sneak into the FedExCup playoffs and secure his PGA Tour card for next season.

The 34-year-old golfer from Merritt finished tied for second at the Wyndham Championship, which wrapped up on Sunday at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Sloan birdied two of the final three holes to reach a six-man playoff, along with Kevin Kisner, Si Woo Kim, Branden Grace, Adam Scott and Kevin Na.

Kisner prevailed on the second hole to take home a cheque for $1,152,000, with the second-place finishers each earning $389,440.

The top 125 golfers in FedExCup standings earn exemption for next season and reach the playoffs, which begin on Thursday in Jersey City, New Jersey, at the Northern Trust.

Sloan, who shot a final-round 66 on Sunday, jumped to 92nd after the Wyndham Championship.

The run of impressive play began earlier this summer and was highlighted by three straight clutch performances.

In his final three regular-season tournaments, Sloan finished T16 at the 3M Open, sixth at the Barracuda Championship and tied for second at the Wyndham Championship.

Sloan has earned $1,107,623 this season.
