Two under today. Tied for 6th. On to Kansas City next week.
Damn, just saw this. Hopefully, you mentioned SoSH when you saw him. He knows about this place, and the following.Rob’s here in town this week for the Visit Knoxville Open. Got a chance to met him today. Great guy! Heads into Sunday in 6th place, four strokes behind the leader. Will be out there tomorrow rooting for him.
I did. I told him SOSH is where I learned about him. He had a friend, I believe his name is Tommy, following him and texting updates to somebody. I sent a link to this site to Tommy.Damn, just saw this. Hopefully, you mentioned SoSH when you saw him. He knows about this place, and the following.
Rob jumped from 38th to 30th on the Korn Ferry money list this week.
We're on a direct line to a bubble boy ending to the season.
Even with a bogey on 1. Closing with 9 consecutive 3s on the back 9 including two par 5s will help. T1 to start the day.
Yeah, the Tour's website sucks. They used to have a full standings for the Finals but they only have the regular season one up now.Rob followed up the T50th in the 1st event with a T34th in the 2nd event. He needs to finish top 25 in the 3 events to get a card, but the guys that already have their 25 cards from the regular season that are playing in this, do not count towards the FInals 25 that Rob is trying to make (50 total get in from regular season and Finals).
I cannot seem to find a good breakdown of where he stands in the playoff/Finals with the guys ahead of him that already have cards removed from the list. My best guess is he's in the neighborhood of 35th (maybe slightly better) and probably needs a top 20 or so in the final event to get in, but who the hell knows.
The third playoff event (the Tour Championship) is always interesting, because you'll have guys that already have cards decide to take the week off, and probably particularly so this year with it falling on Labor Day weekend. It really comes down to who is in front of him. If say 15 of the top 20 guys already have cards, he could probably finish top 30 for the week, etc. I guess we all have something else to do this weekend, as the Bubble Boy makes us nervous again.Yeah, the Tour's website sucks. They used to have a full standings for the Finals but they only have the regular season one up now.
On the leaderboard for the 2nd event, they have him at T38 in the standings (nice guess on your part). I would think he needs a top 15ish, but it's hard to know. In the past they've put out a release approximating where each player in the field needs to finish in order to earn a card. Maybe they'll release it tomorrow?
Yep, he had shoulder surgery. Took a medical exemption for 2023, so he doesn't lose status and can return in 2024, but he's going to be off the course for a while, so not sure what a return will look like.Does anyone know if Rob is injured to start the KFT season? He isn't in the field for the first two events. I believe his top 75 finish on the KFT last year gives him a relatively high priority ranking for the season so he could be just taking advantage and being more selective with his schedule.
Yep, he played in a couple "minor league" tournaments in the past month down in Florida, finished 2nd in one of them at least, losing on the 7th playoff hole. Competition was nothing great for him, but seems like he's healthy enough to swing a club. I'll see his brother this weekend or next and find out if this is a one off, or if he's officially back. I know there was concern about him coming back, and then not playing enough and losing his KF status, and having to go back to Q School, etc.Looks like Rob has recovered from his surgery. He tees off at 7:15 this Thursday in the Korn Ferry event here.
Awesome, if you get his attention, tell him you're a Sons of Sam Horn guy and tell him Greg sent you. He'll know what it means.He finished even par today. Watched him make a birdie on his 14th hole. That’s the par 5 5th hole, since he started on the back. Noticed he took off a cold bottle of water on the 6th tee and held it to his left shoulder.
Will be out there rooting for him tomorrow.
