Web.com final qualifying

http://www.pgatour.com/webcom/leaderboard.html

A guy who plays at my course is in this.... He is good for 1st 4 tourneys (first reshuffle) due to doing well on china tour.

Top 45 = 1st 8 tourneys (1st reshuffle). Top 10 = 1st 12 tourneys... Winner = all year

I assume tons of other guys are already exemp for much of web.com season

I see local Vancouver player Adam svensson tied for 1st. He had amazing college career, albeit at small school. Good start as pro in the last year. Seems like a superior talent amongst very talented players when I've seen him live

Wow svensson sp? Is up by 8 strokes... I think all 3 days he's been low score or tied (except one guy beat him by a stroke today)

FYI, only 4 day tourney now... My local guy was barely hanging on but 75 today

Re: Web.com final qualifying

stage 2 is almost over.. just a few players left at one of the 5 or 6 stage 2 sites.

happy to see drew weaver - not our 2p2 weaver. VTech alum and former british amateur winner - finish 3rd at the texas site.

you could never meet a nicer guy in your life.

lots of canadian players through last week at stage 2.. almost none this week. probably simply the entry list composition

Re: Web.com final qualifying

stage 3 is done.......... no idea on how many advance.......

from memory, i think top 1, top 10 and top 45 had significance last year.

http://www.pgatour.com/webcom/tourna...aderboard.html

2 players i cared about most both missed top 45. one by quite a bit. one by miles.

One Colorado local made it through; Jim Knous

Always interesting to look down the results and see guys with some pretty good resumes not make it; hard game

yup, it's amazing how deep competitive golf is these days.......

and sort of similar comment: how you can play lights-out in stage 2, play horribly in stage 3 and it's all for naught. reminds of feinstein's "Q-School Confidential" or siimilar title. a guy went 62-85 on same course.

So many names I played junior golf with. Can't believe Casey Wittenberg is still slugging it out on minitours. He was so, so good.

Is he as good as Anna Kournikova's little brother?

wow, had no idea about this.. the kid (11 years old) is dominant...entertaining and sad story about his mother neglecting him too.... AK's half brother.

kid phenoms are strange. the little grade 6 and grade 7 basketball phenoms i know of were lucky to play substitute minutes for a half-decent college basketball program. grade 7 basketball rankings are absurd. not to mention grade 4 - i kid you not - rankings.......... kids think if nothing bad happens they'll be in the NBA......... sometimes best players are those that were smaller and had to develop key skills and then had growth spurt. so they were bigger players with great skills.

golf might be a bit better because being big doesn't matter that much. but having obsessed, sponsoring parents does.

local kid i know of who shot 61 at age 12 in a full length tournament hasn't sniffed the PGA tour.

wittenburg sp? was a big prospect. probably the biggest of his age group. has had some success. paired with tiger in late final round a few years ago. had to rule on where TW's shot crossed the hazard.

Re: Web.com final qualifying

I learned About Allan Kournikova in a documentary on Netflix called 'Short Game'. It's the typical stuff you'd expect of parents pushing their kids too much and being too involved. Allan comes across as being a very likeable kid. It's possible that is all coached too, but I'll be rooting for him if he ever makes it to the big stage.

Along the lines of what you're saying about hoops, there's another documentary called 'Trophy Kids', it's a lot more interesting than 'Short Game' and covers some kids who are absolute studs in youth leagues, but come high school time, the others catch up to them. The parents in the doc. are the story though, and they're insane.

Too bad you can't just qualify straight to the tour. Yeah, I know the reason that too many failed and it does help to get a season on the web.com tour before going to the PGA.

Wittenberg just won a web.com event in Louisiana. He's currently 5th in the web.com standings.

Yes, that is what is scary at time. All those great web.com names like Wittenberg. Golf is brutal if you are not at the top.
