Oh, i guess i didnít see where top 750 in OWGR qualifies someone as a good player. Those 2 have some crappy resume now that youíve clarified that for us.

Yeah, being in the top 750 in the world doesnít make you a very good golfer.

Um, What?
You canít seriosuly say someone whoís in the top 800 in the world at there craft isnít a good golfer . Unless your Nicklaus or woods posting under a surname . One can only imagine how much of an idea you have off how good you have to be #800 in the world
Agree. The way I always look at it is that there are 750 players in MLB. Not many folks would say there are major leaguers that are not good ballplayers. Football has 1600+ in the NFL. And yet somehow many only see the top 50 or so in golf as being good.

You guys should probably go back to my original post because you are completely missing what I am saying. The OWGR isn't the only way to identify a good golfer. Ben Polland and Oliver Goss are great golfers who have accomplished things in the game that didn't count towards the OWGR.

They need to repackage "These guys are good." for the PGA Canada/ Latin America level.

Web.com can take "These guys are Awesome!"

The PGA Tour slogan would be some sort of primal scream of joy from Gus Johnson.

I wonder what happened to this guy after he failed to advance out of the second stage five years ago.

I was at that Friday morning Q school  round and saw him warming up on the range. Wished I had snapped a picture and paired it with that article...make a nice keepsake.

I'm not disputing there are plenty of good ones out there, but there aren't that many who can do it 4 days in a row, week after week.

This is a great point. Everytime you hear a golf media personality say, ďThis win should open up the floodgates for ______,Ē you have to just smirk because it rarely happens.

Moving on from playing to teaching, my experience for guys like me....decidedly Not a blue chip prospect, grinding to get ou there on tour, itís a much harder path to gain access and play a major tour, just since I played in the 90s.  The depth is just unreal, the coaching is evolving very quickly and there are just huge numbers of talented players, as it should be.  Every other sport for the most part is the same, and the global competition makes breaking in brutal.

The last 2nd stages of q school ended yesterday with a number of good players not advancing.  What are there most likely options? Min-tours, trying mondays, Canadian and LA tour?

Who are some of the good players that didn't advance?
Lets add...
Curtis Thompson
Matt Goggin
Steve Allan
Matt Davidson
Aron Price
Brett Wetterich
Tyler Aldridge
Cam Wilson
Byron Smith
Parker McLaughlin
Ted Purdy
Mark Silvers
Michael Letzig
Two Gloves
Cory Whitsett
Drew Weaver
Sebastian Vaquez
Brad Fritch
Peter Tomasulo
Brad Elder
Brad Adamonis
BJ Staten

Maybe not household names for everyone, but mainstays on the Web and PGA Tour for years among that group.

most should be teaching or selling insurance.  It is amazing the majority of this list have been able to eek out a living playing the game.  Ted Purdy $7.5 MM career on big tour (plus may $500k on web).   Was a stud junior, definite journeyman....I am jealous!
