The season’s done.
Your top 125 head for the playoffs.
All you others?
There are some big names who lost their PGA Tour status this go-round. Biggest name is two-time major champion Martin Kaymer. Kaymer, who hasn’t been exactly a world-beater the past few years, finished 150th on the points list.
The decline of Hunter Mahan continues. Once a top 10 star, Mahan finished 184th.
Ollie Schneiderjans was supposed to be the next big thing out of Georgia Tech. Ollie was a lowly 180th.
Billy Haas was once the FedEx Cup champion. He finished 140th and since that fatal car crash in L.A., he’s struggled. Beau Hossler got off to a fast start when he came out of the University of Texas but slumped to 145th this year. Daniel Berger was close but not close enough — 131st.
Sam Saunders seems to struggle every year. This year he finished 173rd.
So what’s next for these guys? Players who finish 126-200 are exempt into the Web.com, oops, sorry, the Korn-Ferry Tour finals. Three events that now serve the old “tour school” purpose. So those 75 along with the top 75 from the Web.com, oops, sorry, the Korn-Ferry Tour 2019 money list, all go to the finals where the top 25 can re-gain their tour cards.
Good luck fellas, there’s a practice putting green behind the Dog House.
