Georgia Tech #ProJackets Golf Report

THE FLATSCameron Tringale inches up the FedEx Cup ladder with solid weekend in Mexico … David Duval coming to Atlanta this week … Paul Haley II earns a top-10 finish on Korn Ferry Tour … More details below in this week’s Georgia Tech #ProJackets Report.

*****

TRINGALE REMAINS AMONG TOP 30

Cameron Tringale remains Tech’s highest ranked alumnus on the Tour’s FedEx Cup points list at No. 24, improving three spots on the list last weekend with his tie for 33rd at the Mexico Open. Tringale fired rounds 70-68-70-69 for a 7-under-par total of 277. He has finished T12, T10 and T30 the last three weeks.

For the second straight week, he was the only former Yellow Jacket to make the cut, as Seth Reeves, Richy Werenski and Vincent Whaley all came up short.

Stewart Cink, Chesson Hadley and Matt Kuchar all return to action this week for the Wells Fargo Championship, which is being held in Potomac, Md., while its normal venue, Quail Hollow Golf Club in Charlotte, N.C., is preparing to host the Presidents Cup in the fall. Reeves, Werenski and Whaley also are in the field while Tringale takes the week off.

Nicholas Thompson, whose last PGA Tour start was the 2017 Sanderson Farms Championship, earned a spot through Monday qualifying in Glenwood, Md. Thompson, who also advanced through local U.S. Open qualifying last week, has played on the Korn Ferry Tour the last four years.

HALEY EARNS SECOND TOP-10 FINISH

Paul Haley II picked up his second top-10 finish of the 2022 Korn Ferry Tour season, tying for ninth place at last weekend’s Huntsville Championship. The 2011 ACC champion posted a 7-under-par 273 for his best performance since the season-opening event in the Bahamas, where he tied for second place.

The performance snapped a string of three straight missed cuts, holding his position at No. 18 in Korn Ferry Tour points. The top 25 points leaders at the end of the regular season in August will be awarded 2022-23 PGA Tour cards.

Anders Albertson, who stands No. 47 in points, tied for 53rd in Huntsville, while Chris Petefish, who holds conditional membership on the Korn Ferry Tour, tied for 60th in his second 2022 start.

The tour moves to the Nashville, Tenn., area this week for the Simmons Bank Open, where Albertson and Haley are teeing it up. Will Dickson, who graduated from Tech last spring and has won a GPro Tour event, won the Monday qualifier in … wait for it … Dickson, Tenn., to earn his second Korn Ferry Tour start.
