Others who qualified in Columbus were Robert Garrigus, Marc Turnesa, John Senden, D.A. Points, Marc Leishman, Kevin Chappell, Adam Long, Justin Hicks, Nick O’Hern and Chris Wilson. Tim Petrovic, Scott Hend and Webb Simpson were part of a six-man playoff for three spots. Among those who got bumped out of the playoff were former Ryder Cup players J.J. Henry and Brett Wetterich.
Gary Woodland called officials to withdraw. He moved up to No. 41 in the world ranking after his sixth-place finish at the Memorial, and is a lock to stay in the top 50 next week to get into the U.S. Open.
Others who failed to earn spots out of Columbus were Rocco Mediate, Sean O’Hair and Bob Hope winner Jhonattan Vegas.
Several other tour players were in Memphis, where amateur Bud Cauley of Jacksonville, Fla., shared medalist honors with Sunghoon Kang, a tour rookie from South Korea.
Chad Campbell appeared to be safe until a bogey on the final hole dropped him into a seven-man playoff for four spots. He still won a spot, however, along with Brian Gay, Briny Baird and Garcia.
Among those who didn’t qualify in Memphis were former PGA champion Rich Beem, Stephen Ames, Chris DiMarco and Boo Weekley, who withdrew after his first 18 holes.
This was the second time in three years that Funk has qualified. Among the other nine players who qualified in Rockville, Md., were Ty Tryon, three-time tour winner Kirk Triplett and former U.S. Amateur champion Bubba Dickerson.

_ In Ball Ground, Ga., Russell Henley earned the last of three spots by beating PGA Tour player Jason Dufner in a playoff at Hawk’s Ridge Golf Club. Henley recently won a Nationwide Tour event as an amateur, and he tied for low amateur in the U.S. Open last year.
_ At the Dallas Athletic Club, former British Open champion Todd Hamilton earned one of four spots.

_ In New Jersey, Geoffrey Sisk led the four qualifiers from Canoe Brook, a group that included Alexander Rocha of Brazil and Matt Richardson of England, who lost his European Tour card four years ago.
