Sony Open Recap
42% of the pool took either Jimmy Walker or Brandt Snedeker, who both missed the cut at the Sony. That left the door open for the rest of the field to gain some ground. In fact, only one player who had Thomas at the TOC, picked a guy that earned over 15K at the Sony Open. One person choose Thomas this week, who joined an elite list of names by posting a score that started with a 5: http://golfweek.com/2013/09/13/6-players-who-shot-59-pga-tour/
A few reserves were put to good use this week. Howell III made 180K and Haas earned 103K.

About half the field this week has Haas or Na at the Career Builder. And several reserves are being employed as Kuchar and Si Woo Kim are not playing. Here is the breakdown after reserves were plugged in. Bolded, italicized and crossed out are are golfers that will not play and reserves could not be applied. I’m hoping Smylie Kaufman will continue to build his career this week!
