    A "clerical error" at PGA Tour headquarters will result in 12 players getting an unexpected start this week at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.
    The Tour's annual Las Vegas stop is typically staged in mid-October and boasts a field of 144 players, but this year it will be played in November for the first time. To compensate for the reduced daylight available during the later time slot, Tour officials planned to trim the field to 132 players.
    But according to a Las Vegas Review-Journal report, the change was never input into Tour computers, and players and agents were informed of their playing status based on a 144-man field.
    "They realized the mistake, but at that point there was nothing they can do," said tournament director Patrick Lindsey. "We're the fifth event next year, and we are playing in November again. But we will have 132 in the field for 2017."
    The mistake means that a dozen players will receive a start this week that they otherwise would not have. It also means that first- and second-round play will almost assuredly bleed into the following day, with sunset Thursday forecast for 5:42 p.m. local time at TPC Summerlin.
    Based on the Tour's priority ranking for the 2016-17 season, the beneficiaries of the oversight include Mackenzie Hughes, Ryan Blaum, J.T. Poston, Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano, Dominic Bozzelli, Rod Pampling, Seamus Power, C.T. Pan, Trey Mullinax, Kevin Tway, Will MacKenzie and Julian Etulain.

    -4 after 14 in Round 2 today. Cut is at -2 so he should make it to the weekend.

    Finished at -4 and joint 36th. Great shooting. High quality field in this competition too.

    -3 and in 20th place after 1st round of OHL Classic at Mayakoba. Looking good for making another cut.

    Great round of 5 under today. Up to tied 11th now at 8 under.

    6 under through 14 to move 4th 4 off the leader. Fast progress again he's gonna win one of these soon imo.

    True, if he does the same again tomorrow perhaps a win or top 4 finish. -7 and on 14th, not bad.

    WMcK was 400/1 and -4 early in R3 but faded slightly, still -5 finish isn't too bad.
    Streelman was 100/1 earlier and produced -7.

    Just checked in on the scores. What a round in progress by Sheamus power. Started out brilliantly on your. Hopefully can have a really solid final round

    Great 64 today, 15 under now, 4th on his own and only 3 shots behind the leader


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,847 Armchair Andy


    Woodland is a choker this ain't over yet.


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,037 ✭✭✭✭ vienne86


    Looks like he had a great round today......I haven't been able to watch this tournament this week, but tomorrow I'll get to it. Great to see the Irish colours near the top of the leaderboard.

    Triple bogey 7 at the 1st today :(


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,149 ✭✭✭✭ LuckyGent88


    Triple bogey 7 at the 1st today :(

    Absolute disaster. 4 over thru 4 holes. Hopefully can pull it together and then try get back to level for the day.

    Holy crap. Was looking forward to a great night and now this.

    Didn't he do something similar in his final round last week? Maybe just an unfortunate coincidence but there might be some work to be done head-wise.


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,037 ✭✭✭✭ vienne86


    Just one birdie, so +3 for the day. Really disappointing.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,916 ✭✭✭ Potential Underachiever


    He's spending some serious dollar!


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,037 ✭✭✭✭ vienne86

    Yeah. Another bogey on 14.

    Very disappointing final round once again. Just needs to keep putting himself in the positions though and these final round experiences should help him although I'm sure that triple at the first just caused an absolute brain meltdown.

    GMac has made up 8 shots on him today. Shows you the value of experience.

    It's a huge learning curve alright but I see a couple of wins in him or more in a long career hopefully.

    Finished with another bogey. Nightmare round of 76 for the poor guy.

    Early days. If he keeps making cuts he has a chance. He obviously has the game -Thursday to Saturday at least.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,051 ✭✭✭ Deep Thought


    Pity..

    That's twice now, he needs to get something going on Sunday...

    The more he gets in position the better, but he is loosing a fortune,

    While all around him folks are going low, he is having the worst game of anyone.


  • Registered Users Posts: 777 ✭✭✭ paulos53


    There is a re-ranking of his eligibility category (i.e. card earned through Web.com tour) after this weeks event. Currently he will improve by about 10 spots but could have been a lot better off with a good round yesterday

    Getting a better ranking could make all the difference getting into events once the big names come back on tour in the new year.


  • Registered Users Posts: 886 ✭✭✭ billy3sheets


    After a horrible double-bogey on 14, he makes birdie-birdie-birdie finish to make the cut on -5 !

    He's 9 off the leader but some day this lad will hit the jackpot.

    All he needs is to have one good Sunday.

    Fair play to him. Finishing with 3 birdies to make the cut on the mark shows some guts!
