5 players waiting to playoff for 3 remaining spots

With darkness quickly settling in, the vigor had gone straight out of Erik Compton by the time the USGA officials announced the five-for-three (five players–Ryan Blaum, Ken Duke, Compton, Michael Putnam and Cameron Tringale) for three remaining spots) playoff at the U.S. Open Sectional Qualifying in Columbus Monday evening.

“Really?” Compton said as he walked off the putting green at Brookside G&CC. “Right now? It’ll be dark by the time we get to the fairway.”

Last shot!

Last shot!

I was one of the loudest and most outspoken critics when the PGA Tour brass announced the death of Q-School (as we once knew it), but I’m not going to lie, I’ve been pretty intrigued by the series of Web.com Tour Finals. Given it’s in the inaugural year, it seems to have received positive feedback from the players and other detractors.

I wish it didn’t coincide with the FedExCup Playoffs, though, because if I have to choose between covering the Finals and the Playoffs, I’m going to have to go with demand and that means the tournament Tiger Woods is playing. I know the Web.com Tour Championship, the fourth of the Final Series, is between the FedExCup finale, the Tour Championship and the Presidents Cup, but unfortunately I can’t make it because of personal reasons.

Noh playing his way to PGA Tour where he belongs

Regardless of the score they posted, the first word uttered when players wrapped up their rounds of PGA Tour Q-school finals on Saturday was some rendition of “tough.” With the wind gusting ceaselessly at 20-30mph at PGA West, the Nicklaus Tournament and Stadium courses bared its teeth — the fourth round scoring average was 74.33 at Nickalus Tournament and 75.45 at Stadium. The strong breeze, along with the tricky pin placements, created double-bogeys to appear on scorecards frequently and easily.

Oh no...not now...no, please...uh oh...no...wait...oh, crap.

Thirteen pre-qualifier tournaments, thirteen first-stage events and six second-stage events later, the pool of thousands of golfers hoping to re(earn) their place on the PGA Tour in 2012 has been dwindled down to 173 players, ranging from recent college grads, mini-tour grinders, journeymen, has-beens, major champs, former Tour winners, past Ryder Cup members and guys who had a tough season. All of whom will kick off the grueling six-round, 108-hole marathon at PGA West’s Nicklaus Tournament and Stadium courses this morning. At the finish line, the top 25 (and ties) will collect their cards.

McIlroy eyes golf's biggest payout

After opening with a bogey-free, eight-under 64, Rory McIlroy shot a three-under 69 to take a two-shot lead at the Shanghai Masters at the midway mark. McIlroy struggled a bit on the front nine, finding the water hazard off the tee on the par-4 ninth to post a double-bogey, but he regrouped and carded four birdies on the back nine, including the 18th.
