Top-125 on the PGA Tour Money List


This week, it's due or die for the PGA Tour folks trying to have a high-paying job for next season. Sure, the Nationwide Tour is an option, and a damn good option, but think about it like this. Number 125 on the Nationwide Tour money list made $34,624 this season, while the No. 125 guy on the PGA Tour has banked $623,824. Just a shade of a difference I'd reckin'.

Anyway, the Bubble Boys this week are as follows ...

120 Richard S. Johnson
121 Ricky Barnes
122 Steve Flesch
123 Robert Garrigus
124 Rich Beem
125 David Duval
126 Chris Riley
127 Jeff Maggert
128 Tim Herron
129 Matt Jones
130 Jimmy Walker
131 Will MacKenzie
132 Nicholas Thompson
133 Todd Hamilton
134 Stuart Appleby
135 Joe Ogilvie

Before anything, how incredible is it that Duval is the barometer here? He's the guy that is make or break this season? Seems almost fitting for the man in defining his insane career.

But that is the list of guys that have to have a good finish this week to continue playing, unless some exemption is around otherwise. Two major winners and a U.S. Amateur winner brings me back to one of my favorite golf quotes, compliments of Craig Stadler. Stadler overheard some young kid on the driving range babbling about his accolades before an event. The Walrus waddled over to the kid and delivered this incredible truth.

"You see the guy next to you? And the guy next to him? Everyone of them, All-Americans. There's an NCAA Champion, a U.S. Amateur champion, a British Open champion -- hell, some of these caddies were All-Americans. So just so you know, nobody here gives a damn if you're an All-American, or if you even to college at all. All anybody here here wants to know ... can you play stick?"

This weekend, it's all about playing stick.

I didn't realize the number was so low this year. Earlier on, I expected 125 would need at least $800,000.

I'm amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that's equally educative and
amusing, and without a doubt, you've hit the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I stumbled across this in my hunt for something concerning this.
