    Yes, an interesting read.

    Takeaway points: 1. Shoot par rounds in PGA only events; lose your tour card. 2. Shoot 1-2 under rounds and the situation is markedly different.

    If only golf was like tennis where the top seeds routinely win their events. Golf is hard. The top ranked player in the field doesn’t routinely win the event.

    My buddy and I just had this discussion, I though it would have been higher up than 118. Interesting.

    Even par = 22 missed cuts, $1.1m, 118th in FedEx
    Two-under = 2 missed cuts, $9.1m, 1st in FedEx

    And since I know you like pretty pictures:
