Today may be Halloween -- Boo! -- but this whole week is scary for certain PGA Tour pros. It’s “Keep Your Job” Week on the PGA Tour. Or for the glass-half-empty types, “Lose Your Job” Week.
The top 125 on the money list after this week’s Children’s Miracle Network Classic in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, will keep their Tour cards. The rest will spend the winter wondering where and when they’ll play next year.
At No. 125 on the money list, Ted Purdy is the final week’s Bubble Boy. Purdy has racked up more than three-quarters of a million in earnings this year. A lot, but not quite enough. Ted’s job is in jeopardy. He blames himself.
“Never was I worried about keeping my card until the last couple of weeks. I’ve played my way into this situation,” Purdy told the scribblers.
Hopefully, Ted can hang on. Of course, if he does it will mean some other Tour pro will not be playing the top circuit next year.
