Non-PGA/EPGA Golf Discussion (Champions & Web.com Tours, NCAA, USGA, etc.)

I thought this might be a good idea for a thread since non-PGA discussion tends to scatter itself about the forum every now and again. Rather than have a few random Web.com or Champions Tour posts mixed among the PGA thread(s), this can serve as a catch-all for news and discussion relating to tournaments that aren't run by the major professional tours.

As it pertains to current events, the first order of business will be tomorrow's semifinal matches in the US Amateur:

Frederick Wedel (The Woodlands, Texas, USA#1) v. Gunn Yang (KOR)
Corey Connors (LOL Canada) v. Denny McCarthy (Rockville, Maryland, USA#1)

Discuss.

Thinking this was meant for professional and high level amateur events as the thread title indicates and that club events go in the misc thread.

Yang beat World #1 Ollie Schniederjans (of Georgia Tech) in the Round of 16. We all know one thing, ANGC wants Yang to beat Wedel today.

Wedel leads Yang, 1 up after 11. Yang was 2 up on two occasions.

Conners and McCarthy all square after 9. Conners was 2 up a couple of times.

Tap in birdie on 17 to get it to -14 on the day. Incredible stuff.

ANGC would love to host another Asian amateur (in addition to the one spot they created for an Asian amateur a year or so ago).

oh....because of TV ratings? makes sense...i thought maybe the local gtech boy did something bad or sthg otherwise a local flair could be nice like kuchar 15 or so years ago. (though i am sure a ga tech player is in the masters probably quite often

The Asian player fits the "growing the game" mission they are on with things like extending invitations to Asian and Latin American amateur champions

i think gary cowan an insurance sales from kitchener ontario has won it (maybe 40 years ago)... i'd have to check though... maybe others earlier... not recently that i'm aware of (a guy whose dad i know from canada had horrendous luck in us amateur semi-finals maybe 12-13 years ago.. his name is jc deacon. played at UNLV)

Re: Non-PGA/EPGA Golf Discussion (Champions & Web.com Tours, NCAA, USGA, etc.)

yup, gary cowan won twice. 1966 and 1971. didn't recognize any other canadian names and i know most of these in last 60 years or so....

it's funny. there's a guy who's won our provincial amateur 13 times. and we are a fairly large province by population so it's a competitive tournament. he was a chartered accountant as his job. i asked people who are low handicap tournament guys if this guy could have made it as professional. they all shake their head "no" quite emphatically.... pro golf is different level.

i also read a story about an old low handicap guy who was paired in canadian amateur with delaet (who is considered maybe #1 tee-to-green guy on pga tour right now) and a guy who perhaps hits the ball better than delaet (shot a 25 on a nine and the course was more than 7000 yards)... wonder what that was like for some 55 year old straight hitting 250 off tee guy.

thx rivercity

i'm hoping DeLaet can make some strides and win a few big events. it would be good for Canadian golf.

Yang 2 Up with 3 to play in the Am (i'm not watching just following the scorecard online).

Re: Non-PGA/EPGA Golf Discussion (Champions & Web.com Tours, NCAA, USGA, etc.)

watching two guys in final web.com event before the web.com/pga playoff.

roger sloan is i think #23 (top 25 - automatic to pga tour) .... gonna miss the cut though. getting very lucky though that the leader in portland is already the #1 money winner on web.com. so if he wins, that first place money won't go to someone passing him.... if things stay the same, it seems to suggest sloan stays #23. looks shaky but promising too.....

nick taylor i think is #73 (top 75 to web.com/pga playoff and at a minimum web.com next year)... taylor is two shots inside the projected cut with 3 holes to go. looks like if things stay the same he'd end up 76th or 77th.... tons and tons of things could happen on this one.

bad week for canadian golf last week as sloan was 36 hole leader on web.com and fritsch was 2nd place after 54 holes on pga tour but both had abysmal finishes...

Re: Non-PGA/EPGA Golf Discussion (Champions & Web.com Tours, NCAA, USGA, etc.)

btw, the projections on the web.com leaderboard for top 25 and top 75 are fun but they must be esssentially meaningless (unless you are close to guaranteed "in" or "out") until it gets very late on the weekend.

i see nick taylor just fell from 74th to 79th after parring one hole. obviously other stuff happened and maybe they only update the projection a few times a day.

nick taylor = amazing start on saturday (much of the pressure is off?)

maybe the top 25 for him!?!!? but i'm thinking he started too far back today..... would assume he'd need at least a 2nd.....
