  1. Sal–unrelated to the Deere–but I’m still trying to figure out why Hossler didn’t get an Open Championship entry based on his finish at Quicken. He finished T6 along with Burgoon but Burgoon got the 4th and final entry. I thought the tiebreaker was based on world ranking and Hossler is way ahead of Burgoon. What gives?

  2. Now I’m extra confused. The Open Championship website has Hossler as exempt based on a top 50 in the OWGR in week 21. This would explain why he didn’t get the exemption at Quicken since it means he already would have been exempt. But Hossler was not in the top 50 in week 21, nor, as far as I can tell, has he ever been in the top 50. Any thoughts?

  3. The R&A Cheats. Am sending to your email the press release from them from July 1st.
    What they are doing is they leave five spots open because they don’t know how many will qualify.
    But when it’s time to fill the slots they go to the world rankings and call it top-50 but what it is, when they were looking for 5 guys, all the folks in the top-50 are in the Open.
    So they go down the list.

    Here are the top-five that they took under the “top-50 after week 25”
    Chez Reavie was 52
    Byeong Hun An was 57
    Charles Howell III was 58
    Kevin Na was 63rd
    Beau Hossler was 64th

    If you do the puzzle and fit these five in, you will see that they have like the top-65 off the world rankings. See the R&A has this hidden wish to have the best field in golf, but they can’t because the PGA of America takes anyone off the top-100 of the list.
    So the British will have the second best field in golf.

    So unless you know what you are looking for, it doesn’t make sense.
    But you can see the reason they do it.
    Realistically they should call it the top-50 but in order to fill the field, are inviting those after 50 that aren’t in the field already.
