With stumbles on the final day, neither Canadian Bryan Decorso nor Brad Fritsch managed to secure a PGA Tour card. In fact, neither even managed to nail down full-time privileges on the Nationwide Tour. Canadians Decorso, Fritsch, Curry and Leggatt will all have partially exempt status on the tour, which means they will get into some events, more if they play well.
- Worth reading Steve Elling’s account of CanTour alum Madalitso Muthiya which is inspiring. Mathiya is from Zambia and CanTour commisioner Rick Janes said he was one of the most popular players on the Canadian circuit.
- Six days of hell are tough — but what if you knew you had to undergo radiation treatment after? That’s what happened to Todd Dempsey, and he still got his card.
- Fascinating to see Colt Knost, one of the better amateur players in the game, decide to skip the Masters and turn pro, and then not even manage his Nationwide Tour card. I have no idea what this kid was thinking — in my mind you play the Masters and the British Open as defending U.S. Am champ and then you turn pro.
