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 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 first-round leader Nick O’Hern.

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 53rd 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 19 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 the 2015 U.S. Open and the annual Champions Tour Boeing Classic. He also writes articles for Cascade Golfer Magazine and Destination Golfer. 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, Aldarra near Seattle. Despite (or perhaps because) of his 14 handicap, he won the 'Super Senior'' (65 and older) championship in 2017. He has 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.
