PGA Tour Players in Danger of Losing Their Card
In order to maintain a PGA Tour Card, a golfer must finish in the top 125 of the money list. Finishing outside of the top 125 leads golfers to the rigorous PGA Tour Q School, to maintain playing privileges. As of August 9th, there are many notable golfers outside of the top 125 who must finish the year strong in order to guarantee their spot on the 2016 tour, from closest to the top 125 to furthest away, these golfers are as follows:
In few areas of life would having made over $676,000 a year and being the 126th best in the world not be good enough to keep ones job. Golf is one of those areas. Only $10,000 behind number 125, Graeme McDowell, Erik Compton is in such a position. Luckily for him, he is only one mediocre finish and $10,000 away from climbing back into the top 125.
Seeing Singh outside of the top 125 is quite a jarring experience to most golf fans, considering at one point he was one of the 10 best golfers in the world. While not far from the top 125, he needs to have some solid finishes for the rest of the year to guarantee his spot in the top 125.
Another big name surprisingly on the outside of the top 125 looking in. Cink is a solid player and most likely will be able to jump back into the top 125 before the year is out.
Notable others on the outside looking in: Andres Romero, Billy Hurley III, Bo Van Pelt, K.J. Choi.
