Kent Golfers in the Pros - 2017 edition
Ok, early start to the 2017 season because...

Mackenzie Hughes is in the SBS Tournament of Champions (which you only get in if you win a tournament, which doesn't happen that often).

Anyway, Hughes shot a par 73 and is tied for 28th. Not the best round (there are only 32 players), but it is a nice way to pick up a bunch of Fed Ex Points in a no-cut small field event.

Because they are in Hawaii, they are playing late (by our Great Lakes US standards), so he will play the 2nd round later today.

RE: Kent Golfers in the Pros - 2017 edition
An oddball here: the web.com tour is running a tournament very early and during the middle of the week. We go to the Bahamas, where the wind was so bad that scores in the 80s weren't bad (of course, they aren't bad; that would be a career highlight for bopol).

So, Yip, Conners and Pendrith (sponsor exemption) were in action:

Monday - Conners (79), Pendrith (82) & Yip (87). Average score for round: 80.0
Round 2 (Tuesday and Wednesday): Conners (70); Pendrith (80) & Yip (84). Average score for round: 75.6

Yip and Pendrith miss the cut (+11).

Round 3 - Conners is 5 under on the day and currently 2nd at 2 strokes off the lead.

Conners shot two over today and finished tied for 5th and will earn about $20K. This is a big deal because it will likely protect him through at least the first reshuffle and will keep him playing web.com tour event well into the summer.

RE: Kent Golfers in the Pros - 2017 edition
Mackenzie Hughes stayed in Hawaii and is playing the Sony Open. He is tied for 22nd after 2 rounds and easily made the cut. He is ten strokes out of the lead, but just 3 strokes out of 3rd place, which should give you some idea of how far in front Justin Thomas is at the moment. Shooting 59 will do that though...

Hughes finished at 11 under for the tournament; 3 really solid rounds of 68 and an excellent round of 65. For his trouble, he'll finished probably tied for around 20th. Not as excellent as winning, but it's a really solid effort and hopefully he can continue this high level of play.

Farmer's Insurance Open, which, I guess by cbssports.com coverage, Tiger Woods is playing in.

Mackenzie Hughes had a solid first round, birdying all 4 of the Par 5s and finishing 2 under tied for 32nd place.

Hughes went 2 under today and had back to back good days on a tough course. He'll go into the weekend tied for 10th and made the cut.

Hughes didn't have a good weekend (+4 for the two days) and ended up tied for 54th.

A quick scan of his play shows making 7 of 8 PGA cuts this season. That is remarkably consistent and good play for a PGA rookie.

RE: Kent Golfers in the Pros - 2017 edition
Hughes missed the cut by three strokes at the Waste Management Open this week on the PGA tour.

This flew under my radar, but there were actually two web.com events in the Bahamas with names so similar that I didn't realize the second tournament was different than the first. At the Bahamas Great Abaco Classic, the results for the Kent players looked very similar to that of the Bahamas Great Exuma Classic. Corey Conners finished tied for 7th and Yip and Pendrith missed the cut. Conners is off to a very good start earning $40k in two tournaments (he's earned enough that he would have finished 103rd for the entire season last year).

Looks like Mac Hughes ended up tied for 10th in the ATT Pro Am at Pebble Beach - nicely done weekend -

On the web.com, Conners finished tied for 17th and earned another $10K towards his PGA card. Yip missed the cut.

Next week, they are in Panama and then there is only one web.com tournament in the next 8 weeks, so things are going to slow down soon.

RE: Kent Golfers in the Pros - 2017 edition
Not much good news this week.

Hughes missed the cut at PGA's Genesis Open.

Conners barely made the cut in web.com Tour's Panama Claro and is currently tied for 52nd in the 3rd round. Yip barely missed the cut (by 1 stroke) because he finished the back 9 badly. It's a shame because he hasn't quite gotten things rolling so far, missing all 4 cuts.

Conners had a nice weekend and looks like he'll finish somewhere around a tie for 29th. That will add another $4K to the kitty towards a PGA card.

Hughes playing the Honda Classic, comes up big with a birdie on his last hole today to sneak under the cut line. Clutch 9-footer to play the weekend!

Hughes finished tied for 66th, which is good for another 3.7 FedEx Points and a five digit paycheck.

RE: Kent Golfers in the Pros - 2017 edition
Mackenzie Hughes is playing in the World Golf Championships - Mexico Championship this week. This is a highly selective event with only 76 golfers and no cuts. Hughes made the tournament based on his position in the Top 10 of Fed Ex points so far this year.

He's off to a good start, shooting a one under 70 and is tied for 20th in Wednesday's first round.

RE: Kent Golfers in the Pros - 2017 edition
Hughes missed the cut at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Rough first day (7 over) and a solid second (even par). This is the type of event that Hughes wouldn't have been playing without the PGA tour win.

Next week, the web.com tour is back in action in Louisiana.
