    For those of you following Will Zalatoris' fine 2020-21 season so far, here is a great article from PGATour-dot-com explaining the how's and why's of his current PGA Tour Status

    As of April 12th 2021, Zalatoris is 27th on the Official World Golf Ranking list. If his 2020-21 Fed Ex Cup points to date were official (a win in any official PGA Tour event would fix that), he'd easily be among the Top 15, and a sure lock for the Tour Championship. At the very least, his official 2021-22 PGA Tour Card is ready and waiting.

    Given his PGA Tour and OWGR status as of right now, and his confidence level, Zalatoris doesn't really have that much to worry about. Knowing that right now he's a lock for the PGA Championship, the US Open and most likely the Open Championship, as well as any other event he chooses to play up to the 2021 Wyndham-Greensboro Open, Zalatoris can concentrate on his game and enjoy every moment along the way.

    Thanx-A-Lot. Stay Safe and Well.

      With Will Zalatoris not playing the Korn Ferry Finals, it improves significantly the chances for Taylor Pendrith who is currently in third place in the standings. Taylor is pretty much guaranteed a card for next year, but if he can win Korn Ferry points list (season + finals), it comes with a much better spot in the PGA priority list (no worry about reshuffling).

            What a round by Conners.... Only -4 as his putter again let him down. Hit 17 of 18 greens (barely missed the other & of course was his only bogey). Led field "approach to the green".

            Mac Hughs too had a solid first round too.....

            Hadwin not so much...

                Corey Conners


                Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, USA

                Harbour Town Golf Links

                Quick Quotes



                Q. Corey, congratulations. Wow, 30 on the inward nine; shot 7-under today. Just kind of take us through round. One blip on the card, but that was really good stuff today.

                COREY CONNERS: Yeah, really happy with the round. Hit my irons really well and was able to roll in some putts. That was nice, to get a few extra on the second nine I played today, on the front side here.

                Feel good about the game and really happy about the day.

                Q. I thought you putted pretty good yesterday; today even more, over 90 feet worth of putts. Your thoughts on the green and how well you're putting them right now.

                COREY CONNERS: Yeah, trying to keep things quick on the greens. There are a lot of subtle breaks here, but trying to putt with confidence and trust and be quick with my routine.

                Feel like I'm seeing the lines pretty well, and very happy with how I'm rolling it.

                Q. How different was the golf course this morning as opposed to yesterday afternoon?

                COREY CONNERS: Yeah, it was a little cooler this morning. Ball wasn't traveling quite as far. Found the greens softened up just a little bit without the sunshine.

                Overall, fairly similar. A little bit different wind direction -- complete opposite wind direction, I guess, made things different. But I've got some experience here playing different conditions, so wasn't anything I was surprised about.

                Q. 11-under heading into the weekend. Well done.

                COREY CONNERS: Thanks very much.

                Q. 7-under for the day, 11-under for the tournament so far. What are your takeaways from a really impressive day of golf?

                COREY CONNERS: Yeah, a lot of positives. Feel really good about my game. Hit a lot of really nice iron shots the past few days and felt really good with the putter as well.

                Giving myself lots of chances and was really nice to see some go in. Hopefully can keep that up going into the weekend.

                Q. Six birdies on the second nine. What was going on on that second nine?

                COREY CONNERS: Yeah, just wasn't really forcing anything. Just tried to stay patient. Hit a lot of really good iron shots, which I've been doing for the last while. Gave myself some chances and was able to see the ball go in a few times.

                Q. Yeah, more than a few times. You've been playing really consistent golf. We are constantly seeing your name at the top of the leaderboards. What kind of mindset did you bring to the golf course today?

                COREY CONNERS: Yeah, definitely brought a lot of confidence from the last little while. I've been playing really well and just trust my game and play with the confidence that I have and good things are going to happen.

                So hopefully keep that up for a few more days, but definitely feel like I'm in control.

                Q. Is this as confident as you've ever been about your game?

                COREY CONNERS: Yeah, I would say so. Feel like I'm hitting my lines really well off the tee with irons and on the greens, so, yeah, I would say this is as well as I've felt about everything for sure.

                    After three rounds, Stewart Cink must have some pretty good 47-yr-old nerves. He leads by five strokes (195/-18) going into Sunday's final 18 .holes. Following Cink are Colin Morikawa (200/-13), Emiliano Grillo (201/-12), Sungjae Im (202/-11) and Matt Wallace (202/-11). Four more players are 203/-10 -- Corey Connors, Matt Fitzpatrick, Harold Varner III and defending Heritage champion Webb Simpson.

                    Will Zalatoris, who admits he's a little "fried" after his Masters performance, had a real up and down Saturday. However, thanks to three straight birdies on 15-16-17, he finished with an even-par-71 and is in a tie for 21st place at 7-under-206. If he plays very well on Sunday he could have yet another Top-10 finish, and that would likely keep him among the Top 30 on the OWGR list.

                    BTW -- Zalatoris is not playing in next week's Zurich-New Orleans Classic, has not committed to play in the Valspar-Tampa Classic (April 29-May 2), but is at present committed to play in the Wells Fargo Classic at Quail Hollow (May 6-9).

                    Thanx-A-Lot. Stay Safe and Well.

                      This is why I don't understand Strokes Gained Putting..... Conners today was terrible. Made one bridie from about 6' (longest putt of the day was 6'10" to avoid a 3-putt) and missed loads of other putts and see below only lost 2.2 strokes putting. I would have thought he lost 5 minimum.

                      Just a bad day and hope he rebounds tomorrow.

                        The SG Putting is relative to the field. He was 2.2 strokes worse than the field. You could look at it, and think "he missed 5 makable putts", and in actuality, if he made those 5 putts, he would have been +2.8 instead of -2.2.

                          When you don't sink a putt over 7' and hit 13 GIR's you should be losing a lot to the field. He had 5 putts under 12' (4 for birdies and missed a 5' par putt). Add to that 0 for 8 on putts 15'-24'.That is just bad/indifferent putting.

                            Faldo himself remarked earlier that Conners is giving himself lots of opportunities tee to green. And that he needs a run of good putting...

                            (...or words to that effect).

                              Its relative to how the field putts.
