Next Crop of Rookies for the PGA Tour
Every year the next crop of PGA Tour rookies make their way to the Tour via the Web.com Tour.
The top 25 golfers on the Web.com Tour money list get cards for the next PGA Tour season.
This season has been a big one on the Web.com Tour.
I’m going to look at the top five Web.com Tour players on the money list as of now and prepare you to hear their names next season on the PGA Tour.
- Chesson Hadley: Coming in hot, Hadley has two wins this season and a second place finish. The 30-year-old Georgia Tech alumni is going to make a name for himself on the Tour. He is 11th in greens in regulation and 12th in birdie average this season.
- Andrew Landry: Consistency is key for the Arkansas Razorback alumni who has only missed two cuts all season. Using his 4.39 birdie average to help him along the way. He isn’t the longest hitter, only averaging about 300 on his drives but he makes birdie putts and scores well. PGA Tour courses may be long, but they can’t take making putts away from you.
- Brice Garnett: Another older guy on the Web.com Tour is finally going to get a crack at the big show. Garnett is a good guy to remember as he has won a few tournaments this season with his outrageous GIR numbers and putting numbers. He is 10th in putting average on the entire tour.
- Abraham Ancer: The young Mexican product is ready for his share of the PGA Tour. Closing on Sunday has been a struggle for Ancer as he has three second place finishes. But that being said at least he is there. He is getting there using his accurate driver, and 1.7 putting average to get him to the podium.
- Sam Ryder: After playing with Steph Curry earlier this season, Ryder has had a crazy 2017. With a win and a hand full of top 10 finishes Ryder has been very consistent and right at the top all season. His nickname may be the Eagle as he has 15 this season, he does not choose to lay up too often.
Last year we were blessed with rookies like Wesley Bryan and Jon Rahm.
Lets hope this crop can produce the same.
