Everyone in the top 50 is already exempt for the 2016 Masters, bolded players out of the top 50 are also already exempt for the 2016 Masters.

#57-#80 are considered bubble players for the 2016 Matchplay.  If they have no asterisk, it means they are not playing next week.  If they have one asterisk, they are playing Valspar, in Tampa, if they have two asterisk, they are playing in Thailand.


I am assuming that only Stenson and Furyk are skipping the Match Play.

Good stuff GPB,
I think you can add Donaldson, Kirk, Bowditch, Mahan and Smith to those who already have invites to Augusta.

Don't think they added any more to the 91 or 92 who've already qualified this week - small field, so perhaps they'll open up the special invitations? Nah!

Although Billy Payne might have rescinded Bowditch's invite after failing to break 80 this week.

Bowditch should be suspended from any WGC play for a year.
More important though, the WGC MatchPlay has become very important for Rafa C-B. I reckon he needs a couple of wins to assure himself a trip to Augusta. So near.
Fingers crossed for Matt Jones also.

Yeah, or bend him over and throw him away. The bugger is even proud he made $48K despite playing sh!te. How arrogant is that. Almost Bubba'esque.

''I shot 37 over par and still made a paycheck,'' Bowditch said. ''All's not that bad.''

hend0,
He does, but he's just shown up the folly of these no-cut, money-for-nothing limited field events.
He receives plaudits when he plays well after all, demons and all.
Goes again this week, but he won't have the chance to shoot four x 80's, guarantee that.

Incidentally, it makes the owner of the previous four-rounds-in-the-eighties a neat trivia question, as it wasn't in a limited field tournament . . . . . . Easily googleable and in reports of Bowditch's high numbers, but a curiosity nevertheless.

Nah,
Anyone interested can read the Bowditch reports, otherwise the name of the golfer is too obtuse, even for the most rabid fan.

It does remind one though, that 30+ years ago, one player had the outright 72-hole lead in two tournaments in the same year but failed to win either! Think it was Johnny Miller, but can't be sure.

Maybe the Tour should suspend him. He's doing far greater damage to the sport than Dustin or Tiger.

OWGR - March 2016 Empty Poulter Match Play Bubble Watch

Post by GPB Fri 11 Mar 2016, 3:21 pm

Poulter just barely inside the Top 66 bubble going into Valspar.

PD compiled a list on what players have to do to pass Poulter assuming Poulter whiffs this week.  (finishes outside the Top 52).  Right now, Poulter is T24, so the hurdle gets a little larger the better he finishes, and of course he could pass players ahead of him. but I don't think he is passing anyone yet.

Spoiler:

Still a long way to go, but I don't think Poulter can pass anyone with a T22 finish, but Kizzire at T10 has passed Poulter, Pieters and Oleson

Poulter is now outside the Match Play Bubble.  Kizzire is projected to pass him.  (so would Stricker if he wins and Poulters finishes worse than T52)

The Sunshine Tour had a sanctioned tournament this week won by Haydn Porteous, the Investec.  It was a winner take all tournament (250,000 Rand)

I think it was basically their Tour Championship, and it only had 16 players. But the OWGR did not sanctioned it and so no pts for Porteous.

Robopz made an inquiry and this was his answer


OWGR Rep wrote:The field for this year's Investec Cup is reduced to 16 players meaning it is now classified as a limited field tournament. Limited field tournaments need approval from the OWGR Technical Committee and Board to be included. This wasn't forthcoming this year.

Depending on Valspar results, Hend could crack the Top 80 after his win in Thailand.  Pieters gets to the mid 50's with his win and closer to a Masters Invite.

Key Valspar projections:

Haas gets as high as #22 if wins.
Delaet would crack the Top 64 and probably knock Oleson out of the Match Play, depending on Kizzire's finish
Moore and Hoffman gets to about #30 should they win.

Looks like Poulter is tanking today and will fall out of the Top 66 should Kizzire finish T52nd or better or Delaet wins.

Oleson will be out of the match play if Kizzire finishes 33rd or better and Delaet wins.

SSP Chawrasia's win in the Indian Open gets him inside the Top 150.

Lahiri's T2nd should be enough to get him back into the Top 50 and will be a C-Player this week in the match play rather than a D-Player.

Zach Johnson needs to finish better than Solo 40th to claim the last spot as an A-Player in the Dell Match Play and nudge out Mickelson.

Should they win the API:

Day will be #2
Stenson will be #6
Merritt inside the Top 50
Chappell to about 50th.

This week is the 2nd deadline for the Top 50 Exemption into the Masters

VanZyl, Cabrera-Bello, Pieters, Fraser, Jones, Kizzire, and Oleson are playing in the match play but not yet qualifed for the Masters.

Van Zyl can probably get there by advancing to the Knockout Round. 
Oleson needs to get to the Semi finals.

INW, with his ranking of 67 he's currently first reserve needing another player to withdraw. Stenson and Furyk are sitting out allowing Patton Kizzire and Thorbjorn Olesen to step up.

The draw for the sixteen groups takes place today and I would think Poulter would replace the next guy that withdraws regardless of the seeding if the draw has been completed.

Shane Lowry was bored waiting for a connecting flight at a Chicago Airport so Poulter would be happy to wait to play in the WGC. Apparently Bernd Wiesberger is also bored waiting for his connecting flight at Newark airport. The exciting stuff that professional golfers get up to away from the course

Poulter is in the Puerto Rico field.

If any player WD's before their Wed match, Poulter is entitled take his place, even if it is a top ranked player.

However, Poulter is probably obligated to play the pro-am in Puerto Rico on Wednesday, so if someone WDs on Wed morning, not sure if Poults can get to Austin in time.

The winner from the Puerto Rico field cannot earn enough points to get a Masters invite.  Poulter can get into the Top 50 if he should win, but he already has an invite from his performance last year.

Coetzee can get close as can Dean Burmeister.  Burmeister said in a Golfweek interview that he wants to top 10 at Puerto Rico and win at Houston to get a 11th hour invite.

It looks like the Masters field is going to be in the low 90's this year after getting really close to a 100 in the past few years.

Yes, I saw them.

The first myth is a case of "Figures don't lie but liars figure".  The average age of the original top 10 and todays top 10 is 31.1 yrs old.

The original the original rankings had two African Americans in the Top 30 (Peete at #10 and Thorpe at #27).  Harold Varner III is currently the highest ranked African American at ~#260.

You would think nearly 20 years after Tiger turned pro, there would have been more diversification, not less.

Jim Herman gets inside the Top 70 thanks to his win.

Andrew Svoboda climbs into the Top 400 by winning in Brazil.

Pavit Tangkamolprasert wins on the Asian Development Tour in Taiwan and also gets inside the Top 400.

Henrik moves past Adam Scott to the #6 spot and Dustin moves past Justin Rose to the #8 spot.

RCB moves up 4 spots to #33.

==============

Some early projections for next week:

Spieth can retake the #1 spot but only by winning and J-Day finishing 6th or worse.  

Rory cannot claim the #1 spot but can pass Spieth by winning and Speith finishing 4th or worse.

Bubba, Rickie, Henrik, and Adam can snatch the #3 ranking by winning the Masters.

If either Luke or Brian Kokrak win, he should get back inside the Top 50 and probably exempt for the US Open.

Charley Hoffman would get inside the Top 30


Mike Lorenzo-Vera should get inside the top 150 if he wins Open de Espana.
Kaymer inside the Top 40
Luiten inside the Top 60
Johnston inside the Top 125

K.T. Kim has a 4 shot lead going into the final round in Japan.  Its their first domestic event of the year.  Should he go onto win, he could get as high #61

K.T. Kim holds on to win in Japan. In a Playoff.
Worth noting is an amateur finished T6th, Junya Kameshiro.  Don't know anything about other than he is 21 yrs old.
Depending on Hilton Head and Open de Espana results, KT Kim could get ranked as high #61 tomorrow.  He probably needs to win in the next two weeks to qualify for the Players.

Pretty full schedule of OWGR rated Golf tournaments this week.  

Lets do some Globe Trotting

In Japan:  Yuta Ikeda wins, KT Kim and Marcus Fraser tie for 2nd.  Ikeda should be in the Top 80, KT Kim could move to #61 and Fraser could move to #63

In Egypt:  The Challenge Tour played their 2nd event of 2016.  Englishman Jordan Smith wins and should be ranked about 325th.

In South Africa:  Swede Christofer Blomstrand wins the Sunshine Tour event.


In Korea:  The OWGR recently promoted Korean Tour events from a 6 pt minimum to a nine point minimum.  Jinbo Choi wins the first 9 pt tournament, should get to about 315th.


In Mexico:  On the Web-com Canadian Brad Fritsch is gunning for his 2nd win in as many tournaments.  He will get into the Top 200 and be in serious contention to snatch one of the two Olympic Spots away from PGATour players Delaet, Hearn, Hadwin and Taylor.

In China:  Lee and Levy will get inside the Top 80 and Slattery will get inside the Top 90, should any of them go onto win. 

In Texas:  Barnes would get just outside the Top 100 and Steele inside the Top 50 and Luke inside the Top 45.

Incidentally the Latino Americas tour is in Guatemala, and the Asian Developmental Tour is in the Philippines.

Hoffman should be #34th after the rankings are released tomorrow.

Waiting on the China event, which should not affect his ranking.

Thanks GPB; couldn't be much closer in China, but not close to the Top 35.

KT Kim notches his 7th win in the last 12 months.  That should be enough to get him into the Players Championship and a exemption into the US Open.

Rory cannot pass Spieth this week, even if he wins.

Rory needs to win this week and next to have a chance at getting the #1 spot.

Rickie would get within about 0.25 point of Rory should Rickie win tomorrow and Rory tread water.

Castro would get to about #80 should he win (and a spot in the Players, bumping out Patrick Rodgers)

Justin Rose would get to #8...barely ahead of Dustin Johnson.

Soomin Lee wins again...this time in Korea.  Could get as high as 64th

K.T. Kim finishes T3, could rise a couple spots.  Almost has clinched a spot in the US Open.

Some EuroT projections should they win

Clement and Hanson, both would up to about 250th

Dixon would go from unranked to inside the Top 300.

Wang wins!  3 Asians in row win on the EuroTour.

Jeunghun Wang gets well inside the Top 100.  Needs about 30 more OWGR pts to get inside the 60.

Jeunghun Wang continues his winning ways.

Depending on results later today, he should be in the Top 70 this week.

Day would have a nearly 2.5 pt lead on Spieth should he go onto win.  That is about equivalent to a 130 OWGR points.

Hideki would probably climb into the Top 10 if he wins.

Cejka into the Top 50

Duke would go from #495 to about 70th.

"Irish" and Byron Nelson both in the owgr forties for the winner.
Then cut-offs for US Open Qualifying (top 60) and Open Championship (Top 50) - another Top 60-as-at-June 13th for US Open.

Plenty of stalwarts of the past five years missing out as things stand: Donald, Mahan, McDowell (in @ Oakmont, not Troon), Molinari, Poulter.
