RE: Kent Golfers in the Pros - 2017 edition
Busy weekend, but some different golfers are out there.

The major PGA event this weekend is the WGC Match Play event, which is Kent-free. Hughes is the highest ranked golfer (#113) on the OWGR, but way below the Top 64 needed to make the cut for this event.

So, the PGA has a secondary event - the Puerto Rico Open. Here it's Ben Curtis playing, he shot a one over and sits 3 shots below the cut line after one round.

The web.com tour is in Louisiana. Both Corey Conners (5 under, Tied for 12th) and Ryan Yip (4 under, tied for 22nd) had good first rounds.

Ben Curtis will miss the cut in Puerto Rico by four strokes.

Yip and Conners will make the cut in Louisiana. Yip is tied for 9th heading into the weekend, shooting a solid 68 today. He really needs a good tournament because it's been rough sledding so far this year for Yip and he wants to keep a high position when they reorder the priority list in a few tournaments. Conners is tied for 36th, given up a lot of ground because of 3 bogies on the last 7 holes.

Yip put together four good rounds and finished tied for 9th, earning $12K. This is important because Yip hadn't made a cut so far this season and was in danger of ending up at the bottom of the list during the reorder and not being able to play web.com events. This event moves him up the money list to 71st.

Conners had a very good final round and finished tied for 45th. He has earned $56K so far this year and is 14th on the money list.

Decent day for Hughes today - he is -2 and in 41st place made the cut at Shell Houston Open

Hughes missed the cut at the Masters. He didn't play well, but he did get to play in the Masters. Hopefully, he'll continue the success he's had so far going into the spring/summer season.

Both Mackenzie Hughes and Ben Curtis playing the Texas Valero Open this weekend in San Antonio. Ben is a former champion here (2012).

Dollars to donuts, Ben won't make the cut.

Half the field won't make the cut. No reason to keep dumping on Ben. Thousands of really good golfers aren't even good enough to get in the field, and this isn't a prime tour event. Just playing on tour is quite an accomplishment. Most top college players never do.

I was thinking the same thing.

Wow, another snarky comment about Ben. Qualifying & playing in the tournament should be appreciated, not ridiculed. To have two KSU alums in a PGA tournament is something of which to be proud.

After winning The Open Ben has to apologize to no one. However he made a decision not to make golf his full time job. I think we were all expecting a better career after that victory and feel a bit let down.

All very true. And not that you suggested I was, but I am not asking for an apology.

All I was trying to do was explain why Ben gets some criticism at times. I know I've done it a few times. You getting an apology never crossed my mind.

He did win 4 PGA events. Only 240 golfers all-time have won 5 or more.

He won a major.

He finished in the Top 10 in four majors including the win and a tie for 2nd.

He played on a winning Ryder Cup team.

Given how hard it is to play on the top level (look at Jon Mills who is a great golfer, but had limited success on the PGA tour), Ben has had a wonderful career and has been a great ambassador and supporter of Kent State.

Why anybody would have anything bad or obnoxious to say about Ben is beyond me.

And truthfully, IMO, I don't think a guy who hardly works at his craft is a good representative of KSU.

Ah, the Dannyb we all love. It was soooo nice when you went away for a month because you were so offended by Gflash calling out a player after a bad game, yet you feel free to go **** all over Curtis. What's all the hate about anyway. It's almost like he knocked up your wife after you got the vasectomy, except I know Ben Curtis is too classy to cheat on his own wife.

Ben isn't an undergrad. He is an adult and therefore someone I have no problem expressing my opinion about.
