PGA cut falls at 4 over
Friday, August 14, 2009
CHASKA, Minn. – When the numbers were crunched and the cut had fallen at 4-over 148, 80 players made the cut. Only 12 of them could lay claim to making the cut in each major this season.
That list does not include, of course, Tiger Woods. He bowed out early at the British Open.
Instead, it consists of Ross Fisher, Camilo Villegas, Henrik Stenson, Angel Cabrera, Jim Furyk, Graeme McDowell, Kenny Perry, Lee Westwood, Rory McIlroy, Vijay Singh, Sean O’Hair, and Kevin Sutherland.
That’s right, Kevin Sutherland, probably the most surprising name on the list. But give the man from Sacramento credit, for the major scene hasn’t exactly been his forte. After all, he had played in all four majors in a season just once before (2002) and he had been eligible for just six majors between 2004-08.
Furyk has now made the cut in nine consecutive majors, best in the game.
