Tour players counting the money

Who’s No. 125?

It’s the backward time of year on the PGA Tour. Instead of focusing on the No. 1 player in the world and all his challengers, the Tour is trying to settle who will have exemptions next season at the back end of the Tour’s money list.

A player must be among the top 125 money-winners at the end of the season and the Frys.com tournament this week in San Martin, Ca., will go a long way to settling the automatic exemptions for 2013. Among the more prominent players on the 125 bubble are Boo Weekley, Jeff Maggert, Trevor Immelman, Billy Mayfair, Retief Goosen, Jerry Kelly and Frys.com first-round leader Nick O’Hern.

They are all just inside or just outside the 125 dividing line.

Here is the latest list after the Frys.com.

Bob grew up in Cleveland, an underdog city with perennial underdog teams, and that gave him an appreciation and an affinity for the grinders in golf, guys such as Rocco Mediate, Jhonattan Vegas and star-crossed John Daly. This is the 44th year for Bob as a sportswriter, the first 34 working for newspapers throughout the west, Tucson (Daily Star), San Francisco (Examiner) and Seattle (Times), and the past 10 years as a freelancer. He has covered just about every sport, including golf tournaments, Tucson Open, Bing Crosby/AT&T Pro-Am, the 1998 PGA Championship, the 2010 U.S. Senior Open, the 2010 U.S. Amateur and the annual Champions Tour Boeing Classic. He also writes articles for golf magazines. For most of his 20 years at the Seattle Times his primary beat was the Mariners. He then picked up Washington men's basketball in the winter. He also was the beat writer for the Sonics, including 1996 when they played the Bulls for the NBA title. After a lifetime hacking on public courses, he finally gave in and joined a country club in 2011, the Members Club of Aldarra near Seattle. He won't win the club championship any time soon with his 14 handicap and default-swing slice but he does have a pair of aces – 37 years apart – and in 2009 came agonizingly close to his ultimate golf goal of scoring in the 70s when he finished with an even 80. He lives in Seattle, and spends part of his winters in Marco Island, Fla.
