Ryan's Top 125: Volume Three

Thursday, February 20, 2014

101  Michael Thompson (87)  Finished inside the top 20 in three of his four starts in 2014, yet I’ve dropped him. Perhaps a bit unfair.

102  J.J. Henry (83)  Slumped out west, with a T40 at Riviera by far his best of five 2014 starts.

103  Sang-Moon Bae (115)  Contending early in some tournaments, but weekends are killing him.

104  James Driscoll (NR)  A T18 at the Humana Challenge represented a season-best and second top 25 of 2013-14. Continues to secure paychecks, but rarely contends.

105  John Rollins (73)  Missed four of nine cuts to date, with nothing better than his T19 at the WMPO. Sits 158th in the all-around ranking.

106  Freddie Jacobson (77)  Fallen well off his pace from a year ago. Junkman needs to find a groove.

107  Charlie Beljan (NR)  Typical to his reputation, he surrounded three missed cuts with a pair of top 12s in 2014.

108  Tim Clark (49)  Major health question mark, as he withdrew from the Sony Open and hasn’t been seen since.

109  Ben Crane (89)  Rather than bouncing back this season, he’s 114th in the FEC standings.

110  Camilo Villegas (NR)  Notched seven cuts in eight starts, but has yet to sniff a top 25.

111  Ken Duke (124)  Getting it done with quantity over quality, missing just one cut in eight starts.

112  Stewart Cink (120)  Continues to hang around the top-125 bubble, but keeping to the right side of it.

113  Trevor Immelman (NR)  Alleviated some reshuffle concerns with a T10 at Torrey Pines. Each of his three paydays has been top 25s.

114  Michael Putnam (NR)  Competed 10 times and made eight cuts, but yet to notch a top 30.

115  David Hearn (75)  Yet to live up to the preseason hype of a breakout year.

116  Tim Wilkinson (NR)  A T7 at Pebble Beach represented his second top 10 in eight starts. That pace will work just fine.

117  Greg Chalmers (NR)  Three top 15s in eight starts are due in large part to leading the PGA TOUR in strokes gained-putting.

118  John Merrick (111)  Only missed cut of the season came in Riviera title defense, and has just one top-20 finish. Ironically they came in back-to-back starts.

119  Russell Henley (100)  Perhaps we are witnessing a sophomore slump, as his only top 50 of the season came in the 30-man HTOC field.

120  Jim Renner (NR)  A T2 at Pebble Beach marks the only time he’s made the cut in 2013-14.

121  Stuart Appleby (NR)  Secured cuts in all five of his starts on the West Coast Swing, highlighted by a T9 at the Humana Challenge.

122  Nicolas Colsaerts (121)  Belgian Bomber tied for 19th at Torrey Pines in his best of four starts this season.

123  David Lynn (95)  Vanquished in the first round of the Match Play by Brandt Snedeker in extra holes. While the Englishman has made each of his six cuts, he’s still searching for his first top 30.

124  Chad Collins (NR)  An eighth at the Humana Challenge has him on the right side of this bubble.

125  Brice Garnett (NR)  A T19 at Pebble Beach is his career best, and he’s missed just one cut in his rookie season.


Falling out: David Lingmerth (68), D.A. Points (70), Mark Wilson (92), Sean O’Hair (97), Peter Hanson (97), Carl Pettersson (107), Padraig Harrington (109), Thorbjorn Olesen (112), Angel Cabrera (114), Charlie Wi (116), Patrick Cantlay (117), Josh Teater (118), David Toms (119), Martin Flores (122), Geoff Ogilvy (123), Lucas Glover (125).


Until next time, best of luck to all!
