I am not really buying that Canadians get any more or less coverage than anyone else.
I think its just part of the Canadian inferiority complex

Hughes now tied with Hadwin at -8. Looks unlikely they'll be able to seriously challenge for the win at this point, but still nice to see two Canadians likley to finish strong (top 15-20).

That should clinch a place in the tournament championship for hadwin and give Hughes a good shot at it. That's a pretty big deal too, because it would get them into all 4 majors next year.

Anyone know why David Hearn isn't playing in the web.com finals? I thought by finishing out of the top 125 fedex points he wouldn't have status next year, and would have tried playing in those to gain status. I know there used to be a rule that would have got him in for top 125 for money, but I thought that was phased out this year. Does he have some kind of quirky status for next year?

I think he has Web status and will get a few PGA Tour starts.

There are 25 pga tour spots available in the web.com finals though, that would get him into many more tournaments than the 125-150 status. It seems strange he wouldn't play for those.

It's a pretty interesting weekend for Canadian golfers to figure out where they're playing next year.

This year's Tour Players:

Hadwin's in the best shape. He's projected at 19 in the fedex even with a middling performance this week so far. So he's punched his ticket for all major tournaments. He's also looking like he'd finish out the year in the top 50 of world golf rankings which would also secure is spot in everything next year. All that and qualifying for the President's cup make for one of the best year's for a Canadian golfer in many years.

Hughes position is the most dramatic this weekend. He is currently projected for 29 in fedex points with his position in the BMW. If he can maintain that and squeeze into the Tour Championship, he will also get into all the majors. If not, I don't think he's in any of them currently, except maybe the PGA.

Delaet is done for the year, but had a decent year all in all and secured a full exemption to most regular tour events.

Hearn basically has web.com status and made the cut in the web.com finals event this week, with a chance to get some points to get to play in the PGA tour with exempt status. If he doesn't do that, he's going to split his time on the web.com next year and maybe a handful of pga events.

Fritsch had a tough year, and is out of the PGA tour. He's played a Euro event and tweeted about trying to get on to that tour, but he may have to play conditional status on the web.com. He's also maybe getting to that point where it's time to hang things up. He's dabbled in commentating and seems to have a bit of a knack for it, so may end up going that route.

Next Year's rookies?

Ben Silverman has earned his web.com graduation for next year and is looking to move up in status through the web.com finals.

Corey Conners had a great first web.com final event, and came into this week at t9 looking to get in the top 25 of finals. He is currently projected at 21 going into the weekend.

Adam Svensson and Roger Sloan are both playing the weekend in the web.com event hoping to improve on their positions in the top 50 of the web.com finals money list.

Big day for Hughes and Hadwin. Both start the 4th round inside the cut to make the Tour Finals.

and Hughes starts by going:

Par - Bogey - Bogey-Bogey-Double Bogey

Yes, 5 over through 5 and has sealed his fate for the season.

the president's cup is awful. I like Ian Leggatt's idea on Sportsnet of having the president's cup teams consist of 6 men and 6 women.

Brooke rockets up the leaderboard in malaysia with a final round 64 to finish T-5, 2 shots off the winner.

Yes, that would be the lowest round of the day.

So after a bit of a slow start to the season, she's racked up 2 wins, 6 top 5s, 8 top 10s.

A bit of a grueling schedule over the next few weeks. From Malaysia to Japan, then China, then Florida for the Tour Championship. Not sure if will play in all of them, but i suspect she would earn a fair bit of appearance fees and pro am money so she might.
