RE: Kent Golfers in the Pros - 2017 edition
The third of four web.com playoff events is this weekend and Conners has made another cut. He'll go into the weekend tied for 12th with back to back solid rounds.

Conners has earned $24614 in the first two tournaments. In the past, between $32 to $36 has been needed to earn a PGA card. A top 20 finish would pretty much seal the deal for a PGA card.

Conners was a +1 today and slips to a tie for 23rd. The course played pretty tough today, so a +1 wasn't bad, but, again, a Top 20 finish would be great, so hopefully, a few long putts will find the hole for Conners tomorrow.

RE: Kent Golfers in the Pros - 2017 edition
Conners was helped by an eagle on 9 and ended the day one under, moving up to (currently) a tie for 14th. There are a lot of players still on the course, but my guess is his payday will be $16K and he'll have over $40K in earnings for the playoffs, which should be enough to earn him a PGA card.

More later as things wrap up and more details are known.

RE: Kent Golfers in the Pros - 2017 edition
By the time the golfing was done, Conners had moved up to a Tie for 11th and earned $20500. He has $45K in playoff earnings and is 11th (out of those who haven't already earned their PGA card). He has to finish in the Top 25 to earn his card. I suppose it is mathematically possible for him to not finish in the Top 25, but that would mean that the 16 or so players immediately behind Conners would have to finish in the Top 14 next week and that would be close to getting struck by lightning odds, so we're going to have two Flashes to rout for next year on the PGA tour.

I feel there is a need for a proper emoji to celebrate!

RE: Kent Golfers in the Pros - 2017 edition
Corey Conners missed the cut at the putt-putt course they are using for the web.com tour championship. He shot 4 under and missed the cut by one stroke.

Even though he missed the cut, I don't think it is possible given the players that are left in the field for Conners to be left out of the Top 25 for the playoffs. If things end where they are at the moment, he will finish 18th. I will update on Sunday, but we are looking at having two Flashes to rout for on the PGA tour next year!

We'll have to wait a day to confirm Conners on the PGA Tour because the final round of the web.com tour event is delayed until Monday because of rain.

RE: Kent Golfers in the Pros - 2017 edition
And we're off...

The PGA season has started two weeks after the PGA season ended and one week after the web.com season ended.

In the Safeway Open, Corey Conners is 5 under and tied for 23rd and Mackenzie Hughes missed the cut. The fall season is Conners' opportunity to get off to a good start and it obviously worked out well for Hughes, winning a tournament and earning the PGA card for almost three years.

RE: Kent Golfers in the Pros - 2017 edition
Looks like Conners is going to come in a tie for 30th in his first PGA event as a full member. This is his 11th PGA event, but only his second cut and highest finish. Most of the events took place a few summers ago right when he graduated and received sponsor exemptions. Now, he's ready and it'll be interesting to see how he does.

I figure he'll pick up about 25 of the approximately 400 Fed Ex Cup points he'll need to keep his card this weekend.

In other news, a quick scan of the golfers signed up for Q school revealed Ryan Yip in First Stage action in the next few weeks. Also, Wad Phaewchimplee will play the second stage of the LPGA Q school the week of Oct. 15th.

Q School: Ryan Yip advances to the second stage and Taylor Pendrith did not advance. I didn't see any other Kent players, but it's hard to sort through, so I don't know if my info is complete.
