Gillespie, 38, has spent the bulk of his 2016 on PGA Tour Latinoamerica, making four cuts in eight starts and missing four cuts in a row in the middle of the schedule.

Guthrie actually qualified without a caddie. He scored the spot carrying his own bag, earning his 13th PGA Tour start of the season. The Jacksonville Beach, Fla., native has three top-20 finishes on the year, with a best coming as a T-12 at the FedEx St. Jude Classic.

The final two spots were decided in a seven-for-two playoff, with Appleby and Percy making birdie on the first playoff hole to lock up their places and shut out Zach Zaback, Ryan Ruffels, Daniel Chopra and Scott Langley.

Appleby is making his 21st start of the season on the PGA Tour, making the cut in 11 of his prior 20. He comes into the week ranked 146th in FedEx Cup points.

Percy, an Australian like Appleby, is making his 13th start of the season. The 42-year-old has cashed in five of his last six starts.
