Resetting the PGA Tour University Rankings
With the college golf season set to resume in just a couple of days, let’s reset the PGA Tour University rankings as it relates to the locals.
The top 15 players at the end of the season get automatic bids onto one of the PGA Tour’s mini-tours.
The top five players go to the Korn Ferry Tour.
Former Classical star Patrick Welch is set to play in his final season of college golf this spring with the #1 Oklahoma Sooners.
Welch starts the spring season in the 32nd spot on the PGA Tour University rankings with 790 points.
We haven’t seen Welch play in any tournaments over the winter break, so it will be worth noting how he gets out of the box.
Welch and the Sooners return to action at the Puerto Rico classic from February 13 to February 15.
Former Rhode Island Amateur champion Davis Chatfield will begin the home stretch of his college golf career in 75th on the PGA Tour University rankings.
Chatfield has 664 points and is about ten points outside of the top 70.
He is going to need a big run to get into the Korn Ferry Tour, or one of the mini-tours.
During the winter break, Chatfield finished in a tie for 48th at the Patriot All-America Tournament in Arizona.
Notre Dame kicks off their spring season at the Camp Creek Seminole Invitational from February 20-22.
Former Rhode Island Amateur champ and two-time runner up Andrew O’Leary closed the fall season out with a bang for the Fighting Irish.
However, he is going to have some work to do this spring as he starts the season ranked 114th on PGA Tour University.
O’Leary has 580 points to start the year.
Notre Dame begins their spring season at the Camp Creek Seminole Invitational from February 20-22.
