Georgia Tech #ProJackets Golf Report

THE FLATS – A new season begins for nine former Georgia Tech golfers on the PGA Tour … Three former Jackets begin long journey this week to qualify for the Web.com Tour … This and more in this week’s Georgia Tech #ProJackets Report.

All three of Tech’s newly-minted graduates of the Web.com Tour – Anders Albertson, Roberto Castro and Seth Reeves – are in the field for this weekend’s Safeway Open at Silverado Resort and Spa in Napa, Calif., as well as California native Cameron Tringale, who played on the PGA Tour last season but needed a strong finishing performance in the Web.com Finals to regain his card for 2018-19.

Chesson Hadley, who led the Tech alumni contingent with a 44th place finish in the Fed Ex Cup in 2018, begins his fifth full season on the PGA Tour, while Ollie Schniederjans (No. 96) and Richy Werenski (No. 101) each begin their third.

In the official combined earnings from the 2018-19 PGA Tour season, Georgia Tech came in seventh with a combined total of $8,979,520. Arizona State’s alumni accumulated more than $19 to outpace the second-place team by more than $6 million.

PGA Tour Champions:  Larry Mize tied for 44th place at last weekend’s Pure Insurance Championship, and sits in 65th place in Schwab Cup earnings with one event remaining in the PGA Tour Champions regular season. The top 72 after the SAS Championship (Oct. 12-14) will advance to the Schwab Cup playoffs.

Web.com Tour:  The long journey of Web.com Tour qualifying begins this week (Oct. 2-5) with three first stage events, one of which will be contested in Dothan, Ala., where J.T. Griffin, Paul Haley and Tyler Joiner will compete for approximately 20 spots that advance to the second stage. Seven more first stage events take place next week (Oct. 9-12). Second stage events take place in early November, with the Q-school finals set for Dec. 6-9 in Chandler, Ariz.
