Albany's Broadaway drops to No. 27, not hurt too badly by missed Nationwide Tour cut

Albany native Josh Broadaway needs to earn around $5,000 or more at the season-ending Nationwide Tour Championship, which starts Thursday, to have a shot at finishing in the Top 25 on the money list and earn his PGA Tour card.

Albany native Josh Broadaway needs to earn around $5,000 or more at the season-ending Nationwide Tour Championship, which starts Thursday, to have a shot at finishing in the Top 25 on the money list and earn his PGA Tour card.

Only the Top 60 on the Nationwide Tour money list will be invited to conclude the season this week in Charleston, S.C., at the Nationwide Tour Championship.

And thanks to a bit of an off week by the Top 25 on the money list, Albany golf pro Josh Broadaway will enter the finale at No. 27 on the list — a one-spot drop from No. 26, where he was at when he started, then missed the cut, at the Winn-Dixie Jacksonville Open.

Broadaway, who has earned $162,760 this year, was in danger of dropping further down the list after failing to make his second straight cut, but he’ll keep his hopes alive of earning his PGA Tour card — the Top 25 on the money list at the end of the year automatically will — when he tees off Thursday in Charleston.

Broadaway is $4,391 behind Billy Hurley III, who is in 25th place, while in 26th place is former Darton golfer Brett Wetterich ($164,000).
