Argentina's Emiliano Grillo leads Tour Finals finale

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) Emiliano Grillo holed out from the fairway for an eagle on the par-4 18th hole Friday to take the lead in the Tour Finals-ending Web.Com Tour Championship.

The 23-year-old player from Argentina finished with a 6-under 64 to reach 10-under 130 after two rounds on TPC Sawgrass' rain-soaked Dye's Valley Course.

Lucas Glover, the 2009 U.S. Open champion, was second after a 67.

The tournament is the fourth and final event in the series for the top 75 players from the Tour money list, Nos. 126-200 in the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup standings and non-members such as Grillo who earned enough money to have placed in the top 200 had they been eligible to receive points.

The top 25 players on the Tour regular-season money list earned PGA Tour cards. They are competing against each other for tour priority, with regular-season earnings counting in their totals. The other players are fighting for 25 cards based on series earnings.

Grillo is fifth on the series money list with $103,667, more than enough to wrap up a PGA Tour card. He lost a playoff in March in the PGA Tour's Puerto Rico Open.

Glover was 147th in the FedEx Cup standings and is 15th in the series with $38,991. Last year, Eric Axley took the 25th card with $36,312.

Chez Reavie and D.H. Lee were tied for third at 8 under. They have already secured PGA Tour cards.

Reavie, the winner of the second event in the series, had a 65, and Lee shot 67.

Reavie leads the series money list with $215,067. He won the 2008 Canadian Open.

Lee, from South Korea, finished in the top 25 on the Tour regular-season money list and has earned $92,300 in the series to jump to sixth on the combined money list with $281,067.

Sam Saunders topped the group at 7 under after a 69. Saunders, Arnold Palmer's grandson, was 137th in the FedEx Cup standings and is 12th on the series list with $46,950.

Tommy Gainey was 8 under with three holes left, but dropped four strokes with a triple bogey and a bogey on the next two holes. He was tied for 17th at 4 under after a 69.

Gainey was 35th on the Tour regular season money list and is 84th in the series standings with $2,727. He won the PGA Tour's 2012 McGladrey Classic.
