Nissan #ProJackets Golf Report

Oct. 25, 2016

THE FLATS – It was a slow week on the PGA Tour for Georgia Tech alumni, with only Cameron Tringale making the trip to Malaysia to play in the CIMB Classic. Tringale finished 76th with a 6-over-par score of 294.

Tour players compete on two fronts this week, with the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions event taking place in Shanghai, China and the Sanderson Farms Championship stateside in Jackson, Miss.

Matt Kuchar and Roberto Castro, who both finished in the top 30 of the FedEx Cup points race in 2015-16, are qualified to play in all four WGC events for 2016-17 and will both be in the field this week at Kuala Lumpur.
