Victorian Brett Coletta will ride the bubble all the way to the final event of the Korn Ferry Tour season after missing the cut at the Ellie Mae Classic won by American Zac Blair.

""Rhein Gibson, the only Aussie safely ensconced inside the top 25 on the moneylist with one regular-season tournament remaining, was the only Australian player to qualify for the weekend rounds in California, ultimately finishing tied for 60th.

At one point during Sunday’s final round Coletta was projected to fall from 22nd to out of the top 25 altogether but he was able to hang in by the skin of his teeth.

He will now enter the WinCo Foods Portland Open in 25th spot on the Order of Merit and needing to at least make the cut to wrap up promotion to the PGA TOUR in 2020.

Kiwi Tim Wilkinson fell two spots after also missing the cut and will be 21st on the moneylist going into the final event where Jamie Arnold will need to finish near the very top of leaderboard to move from 35th and into the top 25.
