Ben finished 177 on the FedExCup last season, so he missed out on exempt status. He started this season playing out of the Beyond 150 category, which is for finishers 151 to 200. Currently, he is the eighth ranked player in Category 34 after the first reorder of the season.
Similar to Ben, D.J. finished 190 on last season's FedExCup and started this year playing out of the Beyond 150 category. He has not earned any points yet this season, so he is still in that Beyond 150 group and has not moved up into the reorder list yet.
Additionally, Jonathan finished 206 last season and, because he was out of the Top 200, he would normally not have any status this season. Luckily, because he is a past winner, he started this season playing out of the Past Champion category. His T20 in Bermuda has him currently at the top of Category 34 following the reorder. This week, he is playing on a sponsor's exemption.
Not sure what happened to our Tigers this week. All 3, Turk, Carson, and Sam just played horrible. Neither one came close to making the cut. Obviously a tough course as the cut fell at 2 over. Our guys finished in the +8ish range.
I found it odd that all 3 didn't have a decent round. Carson had the best round. After opening rnd of +8, he shot a -2 in the 2nd rnd.
Carson needs a really good tourney this week with his 8 starts... Now 7.
