Shoot Even Par for the Season On the PGA Tour..Where Would You Rank?

Recommended Posts

A buddy of mine is a former PGA Tour Caddie and current Sport Writer.   He and some other caddies started this site that has a lot of great content. The Caddie Network, a lot of inside info from caddies that you may find interesting. 

Here's one piece that I thought was particularly interesting.

This is a fun read,  that if a player shot even par on the tournaments he was qualified to enter for  a full season, where do you think he'd finish on the money list.   It'd be interesting to see everyone post their guess before reading the article.

Haven’t read the article but I have seen comparisons like this before and I think even par would get the player just inside the top 125. I think the majors help out a lot with regards to money

Well if you read the piece. You will read he only played tournaments he was eligible for as a full time member of the tour.

So he would have to go to qualifying for the US Open and British Open. You can probably guess how even par fsred in those. And well yeah. He watched the Masters from his couch like all of us.

Not very high according to the great Lee Trevino....  "Two things that don't last long are dogs that chase cars and PGA pro's who putt for pars".

Me too.  Plus I just recently learned of the PGA's very nice pension plan. Have a gander at this article.

Please God, if I get another go at this, let me be a competitive PGA Tour pro.  Brings Dire Straits "Get your money for nothing and your golf for free" to mind. 😀

The one thing about this that did not surprise me was how the season brokedown for Mr. Par. Those early season events are absolute birdie fests and even at most of them equals cutsville. It's interesting to actually see that play out because I assume most of the bigger names prefer that because they feel like they're playing some solid golf during those weeks which sets them up with confidence going into the tougher portions of the schedule.

Well, just thinking logistically. If I was a guy with a long lay-off who was going to play an early season event and maybe breaking in new equipment, I'm not going to be 100%. Plus, a lot of those early season events have that pro-am component too, so they aren't tricking up the courses as much as they could. Also, shows the teeth in those Florida courses that Par can get it done to a good extent there. An interesting thought experiment for sure.

The harder Florida courses all have the same component to them - H2O.  Same deal as the Ryder Cup.  Put up a few water hazards and watch the pros fill them up.

It's always amazed me how a little 135 yard par 3 can make so many pros look horribly bad.  The 17th at Sawgrass I am talking about.  If I played that hole I'd aim right at the middle of the green all 4 days and take my two putts and walk off with 4 pars.  It's the guys that always have to aim at the pin that purely astonishes me.  Just run the numbers of how many birdies you get by aiming at that flag, versus sticking it in the middle of that green.  I bet your scoring average goes down aiming at the middle of that green.

      Is it fair to call them the No. 1 iron, driver, wedge in golf? 
      Some notes below from a press release on just how domimate Titleist is on tour this year. 
       
       
      PGA:  It was a Titleist Brand Ambassador 1-2-3 finish at the regular season-ending Wyndham Championship, where Titleist Brand Ambassador J.T. Poston earned his first career PGA TOUR victory … Poston finished one shot clear of Webb Simpson and two better than Ben An … Viktor Hovland (Pro V1), finished solo 4th, another shot back … Closing with a career-best eight-under par 62 en route to a tournament record-tying 22-under 258 victory total, Poston became the first player since 1974 to win a 72-hole stroke-play event on tour without any bogeys or worse … Simpson fired a final round 65 to secure his runner-up finish for the second straight week, while An, who held or shared the lead after each of the first three rounds, closed with a 67.
      >Eleven of the 12 players who finished among the top 10 and ties trusted Titleist golf balls for their success, and so did every other player who finished in the top 35 … That’s 34 of the top 35 finishers teed up a Pro V1 or Pro V1x with so much on the line at the PGA TOUR’s regular season finale.
      > Poston’s win advances the 2018-19 PGA TOUR victory total for Titleist golf ball players to 23, nearly four times the nearest competitor (6) and more than all other golf balls combined … A total of 120 (77%) players teed up a Titleist at the Wyndham Championship, more than eight times the nearest competitor with 14. 
      > What’s in the Titleist Bags of the top three finishers at the Wyndham Championship:
      J.T. Poston: Pro V1x, TS3 (9.5) driver, TS2 (15) fairway metal, 716 T-MB (3-5) and 718 AP2 (6-9) irons, Vokey Design SM7 pitching (46), gap (50), sand (55) and lob (60) wedges, Scotty Cameron GoLo putter.
       
      Webb Simpson: Pro V1, TS3 (10.5) driver, TS2 (15) and 913Fd (18) fairway metals, 913Hd (20) and 915Hd (23.5) hybrids, New 620 MB (5-PW) irons, Vokey Design SM7 gap (54) and prototype lob (60) wedges.
       
      Ben An: Pro V1x, TS3 (8.5) driver, U-500 2-iron, 716 T-MB (3-5) and 620 MB (6-9) irons, Vokey Design SM7 pitching (48), gap (52), sand (56) and prototype (60) lob wedges, Scotty Cameron TNP putter.
       
      > For the second time this season, the Titleist brand swept all eight major equipment categories on both the PGA TOUR and Korn Ferry Tour in the same week ... It is an achievement that had never been accomplished until Titleist made history by sweeping the Travelers Championship and Wichita Open in June ... The eight major tee-through-green equipment categories include golf balls, drivers, fairway metals, hybrids, utility irons, irons, wedges and putters ... The recently introduced T100 irons were the most played single model at the event with 15 sets in play, while the TS3 driver was the field favorite with 34.
      > At the Wyndham Championship, Titleist was the top choice across every category for the 11th time this year ... The other tournaments in which Titleist has topped every major equipment category include: 3M Open, Rocket Mortgage Classic, Travelers Championship, AT&T Byron Nelson, Wells Fargo Championship, Corales Puntacana Championship, Valspar Championship, Honda Classic, Farmers Insurance Open and Sony Open in Hawaii ... This marks the fourth time on the Korn Ferry Tour that Titleist has swept the counts.

      New to blog forums, so I look forward to any tips/coaching.  Lookng for ways to introduce our Pro-Am tournaments, which bring the Next Generation of Fantasy Golf to golfers at 11,800 courses across the country.
