A Season to Remember
As the PGA Tour season comes to an end this weekend with the TOUR Championship at East Lake GC in Atlanta, many eyes will be on the best golfers in the world. Tiger has returned to the spotlight, young guns are all over the tour, and the Ryder Cup is around the corner. But as the 2018-2019 season caps off, lets not forget about the FANTASTIC season that the Canadians on the PGA Tour put together. While no Canadian was able to walk away with victory, there is plenty to recap.
Breaking Down The Field
This season six Canadians played more than 25 tournaments, one had his season shortened by injury, and the godfather himself got into 6 tournaments himself. Let us take a look at a player by player recap of Team Canada:
Cuts made – 22/25
Top 10’s – 3
Total Money – $1,932,488
FedEx Cup Rank / World Rank – 36 / 57
Breakdown – The head of the Canadian class, Hadwin participated in all four major championships (making the cut in 2 of them), and had 10 Top 25 finishes. The model of consistency, Hadwin was able to make 22 of 25 cuts and collect a shade under $2 million. Big things for to come in 2019.
Cuts made – 17/30
Top 10’s – 2
Total Money – $899,373
FedEx Cup Rank / World Rank – 123 / 273
Breakdown – Taylor started the season on fire with 3 straight Top 25 finishes but cooled off considerably before finishing T8 at the second to last tournament of the regular season, the Wyndham Championship.
Cuts Made – 17 / 28
Top 10’s – 2
Total Money – $793,140
FedEx Cup Rank / World Rank – 136 / 270
Breakdown – Similar to Taylor, Silverman excelled early on with both of his Top 10’s coming in the first 5 tournaments of the season. A mildly consistent season put Silverman just on the edge of the FedEx Cup playoffs and without a full time Tour Card for next season.
Cuts Made – 20 / 28
Top 10’s – 1
Total Money – $728,296
FedEx Cup Rank / World Rank – 130 / 399
Breakdown – It feels like a copy paste recap of both Taylor and Silverman here with Conners who made 8 straight, and 11 of 12, cuts to start the season. Conners season hilight came at the Fort Worth invitational where a Saturday 63 shot him up the leaderboard to a season high T8 finish.
Cuts Made – 11 / 21
