Oct. 13, 2015

THE FLATS - Matt Kuchar can come home happy because the United States won last weekend’s Presidents Cup, 15.5-14.5 in Incheon City, South Korea.

Unfortunately, however, the former Yellow Jacket All-American had a rough weekend individually, dropping a foursomes match and his singles match, and he fell to 4-7-2 lifetime in three Presidents Cup competitions. Kuchar lost 2 and 1 Sunday to Australia’s Branden Grace in his singles match, and Grace also was on the opposite site in Friday’s foursomes match in which he and Patrick Reed lost 3 and 2.Kuchar teamed with Bill Haas to halve their Saturday foursomes match against Sangmoon Bae and Hideki Matsuyama.

Kuchar, the 16th-ranked player in the Official World Golf Ranking, is committed to play in the Bridgestone Americas Golf Cup, Oct. 22-25 in Mexico City. Kuchar will play alongside Justin Hueber, the best American on the PGA TOUR Latinoamérica Order of Merit (6th) and winner of the Abierto Mexicano de Golf, in what will be one of the favorite teams to follow.

More details on that event here.

PGA Tour: The fall segment of the 2015-16 PGA Tour season begins this weekend, and Ollie Schniederjans has received exemptions into three events – the Frys.com Open Oct. 15-18 in Napa,Calif., the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in Las Vegas, Nev., and the Sanderson Farms Championship in Jackson, Miss.

Web.com Tour Q-School - Anders Albertson (T10), DrewCzuchry (T14) and Kyle Scott (T20) advanced to the second stage with their performances last week at Callaway Gardens in Pine Mountain, Ga.
