Illini Golfers in the Pros

#276      
Good to read Illini are playing well and Nick and Dylan are healthy. Golf Channel used to televise Korn Ferry events. No more, I guess. Too bad.

Well...Illini fade in full swing so far today. Meyer, Feagles and Guthrie all dropping with over par rounds. Hopefully Hardy can avoid the trend...shoot a low round and win.

Obviously this would be awesome for him to win this event but wondering if it changes his approach to the rest of the season? Would he try to enter more Korn Ferry Tour events to try and keep his card that way? Winning this doesn’t really help with trying to stay in the top 125 (I think) in earnings on the PGA tour.

Good question because this moves him up to 43rd on the Korn Ferry points list.

Stricker finished T8 on the Senior Tour, Detry T29 on the Euro Tour, Feagles and Meyer both missed the cut on the Korn Ferry.

There are alot of former Illini playing this weekend.
Senior- Mike Small and Stricker. PGA- Hardy and Points. Korn Ferry- Feagles. Campbell and Guthrie are alternates in the Korn Ferry event.
I live in Greenville, SC and I have tickets to the BMW Charity Pro-Am. Hoping to see Feagles play a few holes. That is.............if I can break away from watching Larry the Cable Guy, Ken Griffey Jr. and Ozzie Smith (three of the larger celebrity draws this week).

Feagles with a pretty good showing on Day 1. He now heads to Thornblade on Friday and is line to make the cut at -2. Ozzie Smith is leading the ProAm!

Nick had a subpar Sunday(+1) to fall back in the pack. Sitting at 190 in FedEx standings...top 125 secure cards for 2023. Feagles with a -1 today on KFT...he's sitting 3 spots out of making finals. Top 75 qualify...he's 78.

I think he was in 78th place prior to this weekend. I'm assuming he now moves into the top 75
I also noticed Coach Small shot a 6 under 66 today. That is really incredible, considering he doesn't get a lot of practice time.

Hardy, Pieters and Adrien (ADDC) all will be in the US Open this week. Feagles, Campbell and Guthrie will be in the Korn Ferry event this week in Wichita. The Senior Tour and European Tour don't have any tournaments scheduled.
