Even Par Goes A Long Way On The PGA Tour

Doug Ferguson with a fun end of the year note about money earned if someone shot even par every week. Of course no one could play each event, still it's fun to dream what a lot of pars will get you.

Throw out the Tournament of Champions at Kapalua, the four major championships, and count the tournaments opposite the World Golf Championships. Count the money earned for finishing at even par. The total comes out to $817,142, which would be the equivalent of finishing 111th on the money list.

The word par needs a new definition for long hitting pros. Hitting a 5 iron second shot to a par 5 green makes it a par 4 in my book. And driving a par 4 green makes it a par 3. Or par three and a half. So what if par becomes 67 or 68?
And if you throw in the majors only, you jump up to $2208876 which is good enough for 38th place. And you have a US Open to your name.......

Good to know that shooting the card still has value.
Of course, you won't get a card if you shoot even par for a year on the Web.com tour...

pick 25- 30 events. pick the weakest field 30 events. I'll bet you cant keep your card shooting even par.

Would bet a number of the events, if you shot even par, you wouldnt make the weekend.

Colin MacGillivray, I would agree with you if all the PGA Tour players could do what you describe, but they can't.
