Sloan's strong finish at PGA Tour event worth money, points

Roger Sloan cashed in with a hot finish at the Puerto Rico Open, a PGA Tour event that wrapped up on Sunday in Rio Grande.

The 33-year-old golfer from Merritt birdied the last four holes on Sunday to shoot 4-under-par 68 and finish the tournament at 10-under-par, good for a share of 22nd place and a cheque for US $28,950.

Sloan picked up a touch more than 23 FedExCup points and vaulted four spots to 127th in overall standings.

Golfers who finished at 6-under-par claimed US $10,962 and about eight FedExCup points.

The top 125 players in FedExCup standings after the Wyndham Championship in August will qualify for the playoffs and earn exemption for the 2021-2022 PGA Tour campaign.

Sloan has participated in 11 events in 2020-2021, making six cuts and snaring three top-25 finishes.

He has earned US $227,910 this season to bring his career earnings to US $2,378,043 since turning pro in 2009.
