5. OLLIE SCHNIEDERJANS

The end of the PGA Tour's regular season means some golfers locking down status for next year — and others losing their cards.

I thought if you win the PGA Chmpionship it gives you status until you’re 50, but guess not. Sucks for Kaymer. 

Not sure what the heck has happened to Mayan. He’s just completely lost his game. Good riddance, though. Not a fan of his. Heard he’s a bit of a jerk.

Didn’t Hossler just get his? I need to read up on how that all works again. Seems odd Ollie has lost it....seems like his name was around enough.

I think they do have a chance to get it back if they play in the Korn Ferry Tour Finals and end up in the top 25.

I don’t recall how many of the Top 25 on the KF money list also play in the season ending tournaments.  At least it is an opportunity for them to play against players not named Brooks, Rory, or Tiger.

I think they basically all do. You can still play yourself into a higher priority status on the PGA Tour - meaning more starts and a better chance at keeping their card.

I don’t recall the exact format.

My understanding is the top 25 on the money list prior to the Finals get their cards, and then another 25 who finish in the top 25 in KF Finals also get their cards?

Would the total be 50 separate players, even though some players would be in the top 25 in both categories?

Thanks!

Without looking it up to confirm, there are two separate lists.

  1. KF Tour regular season top 25. These guys are only playing for priority spots. They have the cards locked up now.
  2. KF Tour regular season plus finals 25-50. The next 25 after finals get PGA Tour cards. 

There is no overlap between the lists. They are separate lists, too, and I believe it's better to be a regular season graduate than a finals graduate.

i agree with you, as I now remember, that the higher a player ends up, the more PGA events are available to that player.  Finishing first in the money gets a higher minimum starts than finishing 25, or...

It would then make sense for a qualifying top 25 regular season player to try to bump up the rankings by adding any Finals money to his regular season total.

The field makeup for the Finals is broken down as follows: the top 75 Points leaders from the Korn Ferry Tour at the end of the Regular Season, PGA TOUR members who are 126-200 on the FedExCup points list following the Wyndham Championship, and non-members who would have earned enough FedExCup points to place them 126-200 on the official FedExCup points list.

As young as he is, I'd expect Ollie Schniederjans to get straightened out and compete. I don't know enough about Hosler to say, but isn't he young too? I guess what i'm saying is, age is simply in their favor.

Kaymer is someone I'd love to see make it back. When i was more interested in Twitter, he was very active and his interaction with his fans really made me like him. When we still had a tournament at Doral, I followed him one year and loved how he related to the fans, even during his rounds.

  • iacas changed the title to Five Golfers Who Just Lost Their PGA Tour Cards (2019 Edition)

Luke Donald has been out quite some time on a medical disability - he still has a few medical exemption starts available when the 2019-2020 season starts up. He also should a career money exemption to use if need be to cover 2019-2020. Hopefully Donald can get his health and game back in time.

    • Sugar Hill Golf Club - Front Nine 49 Stupid mistakes cost me on three holes. I went bogey, triple (8 on a par 5), bogey, double, bogey, bogey, double, bogey, par.  On both doubles, I couldn't find my ball and had to take a drop.  On the first one, I never heard it hit any trees or anything, but I lost it into the setting sun.  I have no doubt that it was somewhere in the deep Bermuda rough along the right side of the fairway, but I never found it.  The second was well struck (out of the rough because of a topped 3 hybrid) and based on my aim, it should have been okay, but it was nowhere to be found.  The par-five ninth was a series of five almost perfect shots on a difficult, sloping double dogleg hole.
    • Thank you I appreciate that. What made the birdies so nice that all my shots in both of them were great shots. One thing a person of my handicap has a hard time doing is being consistent. When I I'm consistent, even only through one hole or two, it feels great. I shot an 80 on the course which was also very good for my level, and this was after shooting 102 just days before , LOL.
    • First off, is this the oldest topic in the forum? 15 Years, wow. This discussion about the greatest of all time is mute.  All sports have the same point and counterpoints. Most Home-runs, best hitter in baseball, most Super Bowl Rings, on and on. Comparing athletes from different eras are practically impossible. From changes ranging from physicality to equipment, travel, nutrition, playing conditions, shorter courses vs longer courses, stadiums indoor vs outdoor, astroturf, lowering the mounds, 3 point lines, instant replay and more. Best of an “ERA” I could believe in that. Sustainability in a sport is a good measure, but not those that linger.  Having the most Majors?  Most Super Bowl Trophies? Individual sports, Team Sports? Jack vs Tiger?  Take your pick.  
    • Did they reattach the head? Not sure what the point of this game is. You could just do it on a football field. Why take up space on a golf course? Also they’e from Ipswich, MA. I’ve never seen anything like this around here.
    • 6-iron - Current 6-Iron 1) Slower backswing to feel the club slowing down at A3-A4.  *On a side note, somehow the swing path started to get closer to the heel? I had to start setting up with the ball more off the toe to hit center of club face. Like crazy development. My miss use to be more on the toe side of the club,  Driver with the backswing aid set up.  *This made it VERY hard to time up my swing. I use the carry on, and hinge of my wrist to time the downswing. So, I kept hitting a lot of low pull to straight cuts.  Slow-Mo TEE!!    OK, I am going to say... F*** You golf swing 😛 Just stop the the swing at A4. How the hell did the club get there with out me thinking about anything. Sigh!!  Like WTF!!! I give up, joking. I almost just started laughing at the range.
