It's only a matter of time before Detry breaks through in Europe, hopefully this is the one!Thomas Detry is in contention in Sweden! TommyD! Let's hope that moniker doesn't catch on.
I don't know what to expect this year. I was pretty optimistic until our guys hit the links this summer. We had four playing in the U.S. Amateur this week in Pebble Beach but none of them made it to stroke play. Feagle was our best and he placed in a tie for 147th.Congratulations to Coach Small!
Wondering: Illini golf website announced 2018-19 schedule and referred to team as 11th-ranked in NCAA. That can't be right; must be based on last ranking, last spring, right? Who knows what Coach's team will do this upcoming season. Where should team be ranked this season and any thoughts on how it will do? That young talent might make all the difference.
Points with another 64 today to move into second: https://www.pgatour.com/leaderboard.htmlIt's only a matter of time before Detry breaks through in Europe, hopefully this is the one!
D.A. Points shot a 64 at Wyndham, currently T3 (Snedeker leads the pack after shooting 59, with a 27 on the back nine). Dylan is -2 through 10.
Snedeker did win the Fedex Cup a few years back, so that's $10 million right there. Also has 8 victories, so though he's not elite, he's definitely had a better career than most on the Tour. (For perspective, Strick has 12 victories and D.A. has three). Plus anyone that shoots a 59 (as Snedeker did on Thursday) will probably be in the conversation on Sunday.This Wyndham is what Lee Trevino would have called a "Screen-Door Open": big money, not much talent, not a great field.
Snedecker ! leading? C'mon.
Announcer said Sned has made $34 million in his career. Good for him! But something's wrong here. I wish I could have been as mediocre at my profession to make a tenth or less of that money.
Thanks for the info.Snedeker did win the Fedex Cup a few years back, so that's $10 million right there.

D.A. is looking good so far. Heard the announcers talk about his back; said he has two herniated discs, loses feeling to his index and middle finger about 15 times a day (for a few seconds). I'm just impressed he plays as much as he does. He also has a Tour card locked up through next season due to his win last year, so he said he's playing like he has nothing to lose this weekend, and is much more relaxed. Hopefully this is a turning point for him; unless he wins he won't be in the FedEx Cup playoffs, but has all next year to turn it around. Also hopefully his back doesn't get any worse.
I looked this up on Dylan Meyer - he has now made 6 of 8 cuts this year, including Valspar (which he played as an amateur). That is flat-out IMPRESSIVE, especially for a newcomer! There are plenty of PGA Tour regulars who haven't made 6 of 8 cuts. He still has work to do to get his card (Top 25 in the Web.com Finals will get him the card), but he has definitely shown he can compete with the big boys, and I can see him building up to a solid career on the Tour.
Guthrie is currently T11 in the Web.com Tour, and is now projected to finish 75th on the money list - top 75 make the Web.com finals. Web.com Finals means a chance at a PGA Tour card and full status on Web.com next year, while 76-100 get conditional status (not as easy to get into the tournaments). Hopefully he can get inside the top 10 and secure that spot. I remember last year when Langley needed a late push to get top 75, and now he's #3 and will be back on the PGA Tour next year.
