Roberto Castro missed getting his PGA Tour privileges for the 2014-15 season by a measly $32. While he didn’t have a great year on tour, he did have some very good top 25 finishes. Now he will have to regain his tour rights by playing the Web.com tour.
Speaking of the Web.com tour, they held their Tour Championship this past weekend. Derek Fathauer picked a great time to get his firsts tour victory. By winning the Championship played at TPC Sawgrass, he earned fully exempt status on the PGA Tour for the 2014-15 season as well as entry into the Players Championship next May.
LPGA Tour: Mi Jung Hur (So Korea) won the Yokohama Tire LPGA Classic by 4 strokes over Stacey Lewis. She set a tournament record by finishing 21 under (267 total). The win ended a 5 year drought.
Champions Tour: Paul Goydos, in his 5th senior event, came away with the win at the Pacific Links Hawaii Championship. He posted a tournament record 19 under (197 total) for the 3 day event. Davis Love III made his senior tour debut. It was not memorable as he struggled to finish in a tie for 72nd out of 81 golfers in the field.
Symetra Tour: On the first playoff hole, birdies were not good enough for Jackie Stoelting and Demi Rumas. The 3rd golfer in the playoff – Marita Engzelius – dropped in a 5 ft eagle putt on the par 5 18th hole to win the Symetra Tour Championship. Two Golf Channel “Big Break” alumni (Jackie and Sadena Parks) earned enough money on the Tour to obtain LPGA Tour status for the 2015 season.
