I read a lot of posts in which people try to explain how difficult it is to become a touring pro, let alone have any success.

I thought this article is a great example.

It’d be hard to play smart when you need 64 get in.

Major props to the old villain Patrick Reed for Monday qualifying his way to the tour and eventually getting himself that green jacket.

Eh, probably shouldn't follow up a 27 with a 38.

The title is misleading, he was in a play-off so he didn't get in because he lost the playoff. Shooting a 27 doesn't matter if you can't follow the other 9 up with anything good. 

It's tough of course.

That's part of the fun though. 😎

I think the point is, he shot a 65 and that only got him to a playoff. But yes as for the title, it doesn’t matter what anyone shoots on 9 holes if they do a mediocre job on the other half. But again..he shot a friggin 65 and only made a playoff.

True, I wonder how hard the course was playing that day though.

It also kind of makes sense, everyone is competing for presumably six spots. Of course the guys that make it are going to be shooting those scores. 

I read in one of the comments that Brooks Koepka said playing on the European tour is a better path than grinding in Monday Q's.

This.  10 out of 77 entrants shot 65 or better.  So the 27 was a nice accomplishment, but the technical term for a course like this is joke.  Makes you wonder what the big boys would have done to a course like this.

7600 yards.  76.2 / 138  from the tips.  I’m guessing that it wasn’t playing all that easy!

A 65 is a -13.7 differential!

It’s also worth noting that the guys shooting 65 and not making it into the field are Monday qualifying because they’re not good enough to have exempt status yet...

I played a course in Orlando recently, played my ass off and shot even par. I'm not sure I can find 7 shots to shave off that score. Maybe two. And it was not 7600 yards. It's amazing how good those guys are. I always chuckle listening to the young guys at our club. They really have no idea. If your not shooting in the 60's every time out......

Here's the leaderboard. Tough break. Golf is hard.

?

−9.2, or -8.8 if you apply the 96% to the individual rounds instead of the average of the 10 best.

I try to limit my 65s to the front nine...
