After the third major of the year, we now have a much better picture of who will win each title.
In Open, Terry Gallops has clinched a spot in the top 3. A 10th place finish in Durham will clinch the title for him. Brian Schweberger can catch him with a win an 11th or worse place finish from Gallops. Coming off a win in Rocky Mount, Nate Sexton moved into 4th. With Michael Johansen not scheduled to play Durham, a win will secure Sexton a place in the payout.
The masters division has been won by Dave George already, but there is a tense battle for second. Brian McRee and Eric Vandenberg are tied currently. Matt Peckham, George Alvarez and Anthony Gale all have chances to catch them.
Ross Trevor's lead grew after a solid last round in Rocky Mount. If he finishes 10th or better in Durham, he will clinch the series. Mitch Dickens could catch him after a win in Rocky Mount and then another win in Durham. Both have clinched spots in the payout. Nicholas Licare sits in third but Todd Gingerich and Jake McCoy have chances to knock Licare off the podium.
Matt McKone has a slight lead in Intermediate over Jason Hennard. This year long race could come down to a single hole in Durham. Cory Kirchner sits third, but Jason Wallace, Jeremiah Callicutt and Reid Stansell are within striking distance.
