    good luck FWGC participants!

    i dont remember much about this tournament last year. just remember bryson was on fire first few days and had a huge lead. oh i see its at a different course anyhow.. interesting.

    The stacked field events always seem to lend a bit more towards the balanced builds just because that $8-$9k and the $9-$10k range seems to be so strong.

    There are some pretty big names struggling this year. Be interesting to see if we get a few breakouts in the playoffs.

    Good luck to those participating this week, if a link is posted, I will follow along from hopefully sunny Myrtle Beach where I will be the next 2 weekends. Kind of a disappointing week last week as I had several 6/6s and only min cashed with every one of those lineups. Hoping to turn it around this week.

    Thanks for getting these threads together so well each week, and hopefully the 4 of us have some solid finishes. The contest hasn’t been posted yet (there is also a 4 day survivor that goes with it), but once we have the links I’ll share em

    For the rest of us peons, let’s get back to the grind and it would be great for me personally if I could win some cash this week after last week’s 0-fer.

  • pheffernan7

    Oh good, Webb has amazing course history here. He’s going to break my model I can already tell

  • BrianVT

    Was just looking at this winning lineup for the $555. I thought higher dollar GPPs were usually a little closer to cash and playing “safe.” This seems like the ballsiest lineup to throw $555 into. Is this pretty abnormal? I know these sub $7k guys were probably the chalkier ones of the sub $7k, but still, to go with three of them and actually get lucky enough for all 3 of them to pay off seems like riding on a lot of luck for that much money.

    Ryan Armour 6,900
    Roberto Castro 6,500
    Billy Horschel 9,600
    Rory Sabatini 9,200
    Webb Simpson 11,200
    Johnson Wagner 6,600

    FYI, here is the updated google doc link for this year’s event:

    Thanks to all for the support! I’m really excited and I assume the other participants are too!

    I’m patiently waiting for the salaries. I doubt we see Webb under $8K this time and I don’t know how much the young guys will be but I would guess Niemann, Im, Wolff and Morikawa will all be between $6.5K and $7.5K.

    10 players who lost their PGA Tour cards Sunday

    GREENSBORO, N.C. – Scores of players had their 2020 PGA Tour status finalized with the conclusion of this week’s Wyndham Championship. While several big names are inside the top 125 and will tee it up at next week’s Northern Trust, some notables ended up outside the all-important number.

    The various layers of PGA Tour status run deep, and a few recent winners are saved by the fact that Tour victories carry multi-year exemptions. Among those who will remain exempt next season despite missing the top 125 are Austin Cook (130th), Jason Dufner (136th), Zach Johnson (154th), Jimmy Walker (158th) and Brendan Steele (171st).

    But here’s a look at some of the marquee players who finished on the wrong side of the bubble and are not fully exempt for the 2019-20 season, with trips looming for many to the Korn Ferry Tour Finals later this month:

    Full-field scores from the Wyndham Championship

    Full coverage of the Wyndham Championship

    Martin Kaymer (150th): The German has not won anywhere since the 2014 U.S. Open, and his five-year Tour exemption for that victory at Pinehurst is officially over. Kaymer made only 14 official starts this season, meaning the Tour could potentially strip him of top-150 conditional membership for failing to meet the 15-start minimum.

    Bill Haas (140th): Haas played this season on conditional status, and he’ll remain in that category next season unless he improves his position at KFT Finals. He has not won since Jan. 2015 and had only two top-10 finishes this season.

    Hunter Mahan (184th): Mahan got his card back last year at KFT Finals, but a return to the main tour didn’t prove fruitful. The veteran made 20 starts but finished no better than a T-15 at the RSM Classic in November.

    Daniel Berger (131st): Berger was on the Presidents Cup team two years ago, but he won’t return next week to Liberty National. After missing the fall because of injury, he’ll likely receive a medical extension to start next season with which he can return to fully-exempt status.

    Beau Hossler (145th): Hossler came within inches of winning last year’s Houston Open, but did not find similar success in his sophomore campaign. In 26 starts, Hossler finished no better than his T-15 at the Genesis Open in February and he’ll head to Finals in order to improve on his conditional status after staying inside the top 150.

    Ollie Schniederjans (180th): Two years ago Schniederjans nearly caught Henrik Stenson at Sedgefield, but this year he missed the top-125 number by a wide margin and hasn’t teed it up since missing the cut at last month’s Barbasol Championship.

    Sam Saunders (173rd): With a bloodline bearing golf royalty, Saunders has had at least conditional Tour status each of the last four seasons. But he’ll need to return to KFT Finals to keep that streak alive after recording just two top-25 finishes.

    Curtis Luck (175th): The former U.S. Amateur champ emerged from KFT Finals last year, but he couldn’t find further success with a full card. Luck missed 12-of-22 cuts and his lone top-10 finish came at the two-man Zurich Classic.

    Harris English (149th): English has won twice on Tour, most recently in 2014, and he’s been a staple on Tour since his rookie season of 2012. While he moved into the top 150 with a T-40 finish at Wyndham to snag conditional status, he’ll need a KFT Finals run to regain a full card.

    Sangmoon Bae (205th): Bae missed two years of his prime because of mandatory military service in his native South Korea, and he won a KFT Finals event last year to regain his card. But he struggled mightily, missing 13-of-21 cuts, and because he finished outside the top 200 he is not eligible for a Finals return. Instead, he’ll be equipped with only lower-level past champion status next year.

    It is unusual indeed. The guy only had one entry. The reason we see this type of lineup at the top for the Wyndham is because Webb finished 2nd and virtually no one had Poston. All the top lineups had Webb, and many punts made the cut, so we see a lot of stars and scrubs lineups at the top.

    It should be different this week unless Koepka wins again.

    Sounds like a Woodland course to me. Description reminds me of Pebble a bit.

    Woodland could be good for sure due to his excellent long irons, but I would caution relating it too much to pebble. Pebble is a very short course with a lot of short irons/wedges, but Liberty National is pretty long, so you’re gonna see a lot more long irons hit this week I think. Woodland still very much a consideration.

    Time for DJ to remind everyone he’s still got game.

    Appreciate the info. Good to know!
