Kiwi golfer chasing PGA tour card

6:48 am on 19 October 2009

The Bay of Plenty golfer Bradley Iles is within reach of a 2010 PGA tour card on the final day of the Nationwide Tour's Miccosukee championship in Miami.

Iles teed off in the final round tied for 8th, and he's now tied for second, one shot behind the leader six holes into his final round.

Iles needs about 50-thousand US dollars to get into the top-25 on the money list who would qualify for next year's PGA tour, and the Miami event offers a first prize of 90-thousand US dollars.
