Leishman eager to kick on
Australia's Marc Leishman is excited for a big month of golf as he tries to climb the FedEx Cup leaderboard in August.
The 35-year-old finished third at the WGC-FedEx St Jude Invitational on Sunday, with Brooks Koepka lifting the trophy in the end.
Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy separated the pair during the PGA Tour event but Leishman was still happy with his performance as he finished among the best players in the world.
Leishman won the CIMB Classic earlier in the year and he is now 11th in the FedEx Cup standings. He could now claim a sizeable chunk of the prize money but the 12-time PGA Tour winner is keen to climb the rankings in the coming weeks.
He told PGA Australia: "It's hopefully going to be a big month of golf and this is a good way to start it.
"It's just nice to see a few putts go in and a few shots going where I'm looking. I hadn't been playing terrible but I haven't been playing like that.
"It's nice to stand over an iron shot and feel like you're actually going to hit a really good shot. I was happy with that. Excited for the Playoffs now.
"It wasn't a win, but still a really good finish and will definitely give me confidence going into the three playoff events at two courses I love. Really enjoy playing Liberty National, I've never been to Medinah, but I love Chicago and Atlanta."
