The.Frozen.Predictions- Wyndham Championship

      Unless you're living under a rock you didn't miss Jason Dufner win the PGA Championship but it wasn't until recently I noticed he's also the golf version of my favourite bowler "The Dude" from The Big Lebowski:


      Well if you want to read more about dufner and #Dufnering check out my last post #MajorDufnering


      It's crunch time and not the chocolate bar kind, for many of the tour players hovering around the all important 125 number on the Fedex Cup list. As the PGA Tour regular season is over on sunday those players 125 and higher with start the playoffs next week at The Barclays where only 100 players will advance to the next stage. As for the players outside the 125 after sunday they will have to complete in the Web.com finals for only 25 tour cards. The new PGA Tour is kinda exciting when you really look at it, players knew all year this shorten season was going to tough without the fall series to try and maintain your status. Which is why the field is bottom heavy with every player from 83rd to 125th in the feild. That said we still have a few marquee name like Brandt Sendeker 3rd, Bill Haas 6th, Zach Johnson 23rd and Jordan Spieth 15th playing, whom are safely through the next few stages of the playoffs. And on the outside looking in you have names like Pardriag Harrington, Vijay Singh, David Toms, Trevor Immelman and Davis Love III, all major winners. All of which, without great weeks will see their seasons finish sunday.
