How They're Doing: Minnesotans on Pro Tour Money Lists -- Nov. 19

November 19, 2017



How players from Minnesota -- or with Minnesota connections -- are doing this year on professional golf tours.



2017-18 PGA TOUR

Pos.  Player (Prev. Rank)  From  Events played Earnings

55. Tom Hoge (53), Fargo                           5        $303,710

163. Troy Merritt (161), Spring Lake Park    5         $42,415

202. Tim Herron (195), Wayzata                   1          $9,861
  



2016-17 PGA TOUR

Regular Season Money List

Final


149. Troy Merritt (151), Spring Lake Park 28        $569,682

167. Tom Hoge (165), Fargo                     17        $373,092    

Charlie Danielson (NA), Osceola                2          $31,302*

230. Tim Herron (229), Wayzata                 8          $29,857

Ben Polland, Jefferson                               1               --

Cam Beckman, Burnsville                          2               --

Neil Johnson, River Falls                           2               --

* -- Danielson is not an official member of the PGA Tour; so he is not on the money list. If he were, he would have been No. 229.

(The top 125 players from the FedEx Point Standings, which are similar to but not the same as the money list, went into the FedEx Playoffs, a four-tournament series that began in August. It ended with the Tour Championship at East Lake GC in Atlanta. Justin Thomas was the big winner, finising first in the Points Standings -- and receiving a bonus of $10 million as a result. Those top 125 players in the point standings will also be fully exempt for the 2017-18 PGA Tour season. So will the top 125 from the regular season money list. Players from 126 to 150 will have limited status for the 2017-18 season. Players from 126 through 200 went into the Web.com Playoffs, which are explained below.) 


2017 Web.com TOUR

Regular Season Money List

Final standings


77. Brady Schnell (75), Milford, Iowa        20          $63,362

175. Charlie Danielson (175), Osceola       2            $8,316

189. Ben Polland (189), Jefferson              4             $6,266

224. Tom Hoge (224), Fargo                      3             $1,689

Andrew McCain, Minneapolis                    1                  --   

(The top 25 players from the Web.com regular season money list received PGA Tour Cards for the 2017-18 season, which  began the first week in Oct. with the Safeway Open in Napa, Calif. Those top 25 and the next 50 on the money list -- along with Nos. 126 through 200 on the PGA Tour money list -- went into the Web.com Playoffs. From that group of 150 players, the top 25 finishers, not counting those who had already earned PGA Tour Cards, gained status for the 2017-18 PGA Tour season. Like the FedEx Playoffs, the Web.com Playoffs are a four-tournament series. They concluded with the Web.com Tour Championship at Atlantic Beach CC in Atlantic Beach, Fla, Sept. 28-Oct. 1. In addition to getting into the playoffs, those players who finished in the top 75 on the Web.com regular season money list will be fully exempt for the Web.com Tour next year.)




Web.com Finals

Final


17. Troy Merrtt (11), Spring Lake Park     4             $59,650* 

29. Tom Hoge (39), Fargo                        4             $44,048*

* -- Both Merritt and Hoge finished inside the top 25 in the Finals -- not counting players who finished in the top 25 during the regular season. As a result, both retained their PGA Tour Cards for the 2017-18 season.




2017 PGA TOUR CHAMPIONS

Final


18. Tom Lehman (16), Alexandria           20           $913,693

T164. Tim Thelen (T164), Albany              2              $5,667

200. John Harris (200), Roseau                1              $1,750

Don Berry, Mounds View                           1                 --

Kevin Cashman, Eden Prairie                    1                 --

(Like the PGA Tour, the Champions Tour has playoffs -- The Charles Schwab Cup Playoffs, a three-tournament series that began in October with the Dominion Energy Charity Classic in Virginia. The top 72 players on the money list were eligible. Bernhard Langer, who seems to have won almost everything for the last three years, won the tournament and expanded his lead on the money list. Except that the money list was converted to a points list for the playoffs. Just think of each dollar as a point. For the playoffs, however, the points were inflated, for added drama. Langer won again the following week (his seventh victory of the year), at the PowerShares QQQ Championship in California. The top 54 on the money/points list were eligible for that one. The top 36 made it to the final event of the season --  the Charles Schwab Cup Championship at the venerable Phoenix Country Club. Kevin Sutherland won there, his first victory on the Champions Tour, and because the points for the tournament were so outrageously inflated, he won the Charles Schwab Cup. Never mind that Langer made nearly twice as much as Sutherland in 2017 -- $3,677,359 to $1,961,732.)
