PGA TOUR UPDATE

Stewart Cink and Ollie Schniederjans graduated from Georgia Tech 20 years apart, but they were both in Bermuda last weekend contending for a title at the Bermuda Championship and finished in the top 5.

The 47-yeard-old Cink, with his son Reagan again on his bag, shot 68-64 on the weekend in seeking his eighth Tour title and tied for fourth place at 12-under-par 272. Cink now has a win, a tie for 12th and a tie for fourth in four starts in the 2020-21 season, and moved up to the No. 2 position in FedEx Cup points, just four points behind Bryson Dechambeau.

Schniederjans, a member of the Korn Ferry Tour, which is on hiatus until January, received a sponsor’s exemption to play in Bermuda and made the most of it, firing rounds of 66-70-69-66 to finish solo third at 13-under-par 271. The 2019 Bermuda Championship (missed cut) was the only PGA TOUR event he played in the 2019-20 season after finishing No. 180 in the FedExCup in the 2018-19 season, and he claimed his fourth top-3 finish in 99 PGA Tour starts. The top-10 finish earns him an alternate spot at this week’s Vivint Houston Open.

The 27-year-old Schniederjans, whose younger brother Ben was on his bag and whose youngest brother Luke also played on a sponsor exemption (missed cut), has had eight top-25 finishes in 17 Korn Ferry Tour starts during the 2020-21 combined season, and the Bermuda finish validates belief in his revamped game.  PGATour.com story  |  Golfweek story

Yellow Jacket Chesson Hadley also turned in a strong performance tying for 16th place at Bermuda on an 8-under-par score of 276, giving him a 30-position bump to No. 72 in the FedEx Cup standings. It was his best finish since a tie for 16th at the season-opening Safeway Open.

Cink and Schniederjans are joined in the field this weekend in Houston by Cameron Tringale, who missed the cut in Bermuda. Hadley, who has partial status on the PGA Tour currently, was listed as an alternate as of Monday.
