Illini Golfers in the Pros

#452      
So, if I'm reading things correctly, Nick is in 138th place for the seasons rankings, but in 130th for the playoffs. It seems that the difference between the 2 lists has to do with suspension due to competing in unauthorized events.

My first thought was that this is LIV golf. But wouldn't that be more than 8 golfers ahead of Nick?

Apparently not. They've been named as Talor Gooch, Matt Jones, Hudson Swafford, Matt Wolff, Abraham Ancer, Carlos Ortiz, Brooks Koepka and Pat Perez.

But I would have thought that DJ and Bryson and Patrick Reed would have been on that list as well. They aren't named as excluded, but they also don't appear on either the full list or the playoff only list. Are they not on either list because they joined LIV so early?

It's all quite interesting.

Some of the players have already resigned from the tour...it is the LIV players helping to get him closer... I think 3-4 more are coming off inluding Bubba Watson this week...he still has decent chance of making it....

Thanks, I believe I understand the process now. Much appreciated.
The difference being that some PGA players have affirmatively resigned, while others have not done so and been removed.
Interesting.

Nick needs to be a bit better today.
Shot -1 yesterday, but the cut would've been -2 if it was a one day cut, so c'mon Nick, a few more birdies please.

Guthrie and Hardy both missed the cut in Detroit. Pgatour.com finally has a Fed Ex Cup points list that excludes LIV players. Hardy is projected to be in 128th place as of now. Top 125 make the playoffs (essentially keeping their tour cards), with only one more regular season event remaining. Nick will need to make the cut and probably get a top 30 finish next week.

Kuhl leading by 1 shot with one hole to play today sitting at -7. ADC tied for 18th at -2. Hunt and Ji both far back and missed the cut. Ji particularly had a bad tournament, finishing +18. Hunt had a good first day but shot 6 over today to freefall.

Thank you. I see on the link posted below yours that Besard, the grad transfer from SIU, is tied for 8th at -4.

The ILLINI are on the verge of putting 3 players in the final 16 at the Western Amateur. Besard (-12) 2nd place. Kuhl (-9) T4th. ADDC (-6) T15th.
ADDC is going to some type of playoff as he is tied with 6 other players and only 2 can advance to tomorrow's match play.

If ADDC and Kuhn both win tomorrow morning they will play each other in the afternoon.
