PGA TOUR UPDATE

Only Matt Kuchar and Richy Werenski were in action last weekend as the PGA Tour finished a two-week run in Las Vegas for the CJ Cup at Shadow Creek, a limited-field event normally conducted in Korea but moved to the United States this year due to Covid-19.

Werenski tied for 28th place (283, -5) and jumped more than 40 spots in the FedEx Cup standings, while Kuchar tied for 52nd place.

Kuchar and Werenski will compete this week in Thousand Oaks, Calif., for the ZOZO Championship at Sherwood Country Club, another event held in Asia moved to the United States because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Luke Schniederjans had himself a round to remember last Wednesday. During the second round of the Mimosa Challenge, a GPro Tour event at Mimosa Hills Golf Club, Schniederjans went low, dissecting the Donald Ross-designed course in Morganton, North Carolina to the tune of 11-under 59. The 2020 Georgia Tech graduate made birdie on every hole on the front nine except for the par-4 fourth, making the turn at 8-under 27.

In his first professional event, Schniederjans followed that with a final-round 65 and tied for first with Greg Eason, who won the $10,000 first prize in a playoff. Schniederjans took home $5,450. James Clark missed the cut in the same event.
