What a fun weekend in golf! The European tour came up big, while there was lots of drama at TPC Boston as another cut was made in the FedEx Cup Playoffs.
- Anthony Kim and Stewart Cink failed to make the cut at the Deutsche Bank Championship, thus eliminating them from the FedEx Cup playoffs. If AK just made the cut, I think he would have been okay, as he was 66th heading into the event. For Cink, he was 94th heading into the event.
- Charl Schwartzel gave Nike Golf some hope after being tied for the lead after a pair of 66’s heading into Sunday. However, he still got a Top 25.
- Lucas Glover probably had the most consistent weekend of anyone; 69-69-69-70 locked up his T21 at the Deutsche Bank. Great bounce back after missing the cut at the Barclays.
- Jhonattan Vegas has made 9 straight cuts. He should be too upset with his T42 at TPC Boston, since he did play quite well.
- Not much new for Nike Golf on the European tour. Kaymer and McIlroy contended, Bjorn picked up his 2nd straight win and Dyson and Francesco picked up good Top 25s.
- Big finishes on the Nationwide Tour, as Scott Brown and Kevin Kisner picked up Top 25s. While Kisner was in The Top 25 last year, Scott Brown should do the same as he is currently 12th on the Nationwide Money List.
- Meanwhile, Dustin Garza has played in 17 Nationwide events; 15 Missed Cuts, 1 WD and 1 DQ.
