TRINGALE, WERENSKI PLAY THE WEEKEND AT TORREY PINES

Cameron Tringale continued his solid play on the PGA Tour last weekend with a tie for 18th place at the Farmers Insurance Open, posting a 5-under-par 283 with rounds of 72, 72 and 70 on the South course. Tringale, who has made six cuts in eight events, including three top-25 finishes, moved up to 46th in the FedEx Cup points standings.

Richy Werenski played well for the first three rounds (69-69-73) but fell back Sunday with a 79 and tied for 60th place. He is No. 128 in the FedEx Cup standings. He did, however, make a hole-in-one at the third hole on the South course in his first round, giving him a distinction of sorts.  Read more

Chesson Hadley, Andy Ogletree (playing on a sponsor exemption) and Vincent Whaley missed the cut, as did Tyler Strafaci, competing as an amateur with a sponsor exemption.

Tringale and Werenski will return to action this week along with Stewart Cink and Matt Kuchar at the Waste Management Phoenix Open in Scottsdale, Ariz. Vincent Whaley became the fifth Yellow Jacket in the field after firing a 64 to grab one of three spots available in Monday qualifying.

FARMERS IS FIRST OF SEVERAL TOUR EVENTS FOR STRAFACI

After a fall season without competitive golf, Tyler Strafaci began a string of PGA Tour stops in which he will play on an exemption awarded to the 2020 U.S. Amateur champion. The recent Tech graduate will not turn pro until after competing in the Walker Cup matches in May. Meanwhile, he has plenty of opportunities for competition after missing the cut last weekend at the Farmers Insurance Open. Strafaci shot 77 on the South course, 75 on the North, in his third Tour start.

In February and March, he will play in the Genesis Invitational and the Arnold Palmer Invitational before competing in the Masters in April. He also has spots in the RBC Heritage and the Charles Schwab Invitational. The U.S. Open comes up Father’s Day weekend in June, for which he can play as a professional.
