Kresge, in his first year on the PGA Tour Champions circuit, finished tied for 10th at the Japan Mastercard Championship on Sunday.
It’s the first top-10 finish for the rookie on the 50-and-over tour and the $60,000 he earned moved him up to 62nd on the Charles Schwab Cup list with $109,938.
Kresge shot even-par scores in the first and third rounds. In between, he posted a six-under-par 66. That left him at six under par for the 54-hole tournament. He finished tied with Colin Montgomerie and Paul Goydos.
Scott McCarron won the event with a score of 13 under par, beating Billy Andrade and Kirk Triplett by three strokes.
