RE: Kent Golfers in the Pros - 2017 edition
Looking like a promising weekend.

On the PGA Tour, Mackenzie Hughes is tied for 18th. The Greenbrier is a qualifyiing tournament for the (British) Open, so if Mackenzie can finish in the top 4 (among those not already qualified), he would qualify.

On the web.com Tour, Yip is tied for 4th and Conners is tied for 23rd. Yip need a high finish or two to move into the top 75 and the chance of getting the PGA Tour card in the web.com playoffs. Conners is not out of contention for finishing in the Top 25 and getting the PGA card outright, but he hasn't been playing top notch golf this summer and could use a good tournament.

And finally Brett Cairns is tied for 30th and very likely to make the cut on the Mackenzie Tour.

On the web.com tour, Conners and Yip will go into the final round tied for 6th, 5 shots behind the leader.

Hughes is tied for 32nd after the third round in WV.

Cairns is tied for 33rd in the Great White North.

Hughes finished tied for 20th and continues to play consistent, very solid golf on the PGA tour.

Conners finished tied for 9th and Yip slipped to tied for 29th. It's a shame because Yip really needs a good tournament, but he has had bad days on Sundays a few times this season.

Cairns finished tied for 45th.

This week:

Curtis withdrew from the Open Championship (couldn't find why) and everyone else didn't make the cut.

Check back next week

Mackenzie Hughes is playing the WGC-Bridgestone, not well mind you, but there is no cut, so this is a benefit of winning a tournament. He is currently tied for 69th.

Taylor Pendrith and Brett Cairns are playing the Syncrude Oil Championship and above the cut line after the 1st round.

Ryan Yip is playing the web.com event and at the cut line. No Conners this week.

A thought about Stephan Curry playing a web.com event. The first round was definitely a solid effort and I think he showed he can hang in there with the big boys of golf. I have no problem with it and see it similar to say Antonio Gates or Kenny Lofton playing in an NBA D League game. He is an all-time great in another sport, but is good enough to go out there and play with top basketball players. Plus, it's kind of fun to watch.

Hughes is near the bottom in Akron.

Yip missed the cut by 1 stroke.

Pendrith and Cairns made the cut in Canada. Danny Sahl was also playing (first event this year) and he didn't make the cut.

It's one for five this week with making cuts.

* Corey Conners roared back from an opening round trainwreck to shoot 8 under in the second round and land on the cut line. Hopefully, he has a two more great rounds in his bag and can play himself into contention.

RE: Kent Golfers in the Pros - 2017 edition
Another yuck weekend.

* Conners missed the cut and Yip made the cut on the web.com tour. Yip desperately needs a very strong finish to improve his standing to make the web.com tour playoffs and a chance at the PGA tour. He is tied for 29th right now. Conners is assured of making the playoffs.

* Cairns and Pendrith missed the cut in the great white north.

* Hughes is not playing.

Yip shot 7 under today and is tied for third with a few left on the course for the 3rd round. Another good round will push him towards the web.com tour playoffs.
