J.J. Henry needs big week to keep streak alive

|

Going back to 2001, and for every year after that, Fairfield’s J.J. Henry has either finished in the Top 125 on the PGA Tour money list or high enough on the FedEx Cup point list, meaning he’s automatically renewed his Tour card playing privileges for the following season.
But that streak might be in jepodary.
Currently, Henry stands 139th on the money list with $525,288 – 14 spots below the cut-off point. Currently Bud Cauley is 125th with $647,886, meaning that Henry needs to win at least $122,598 in order to have a solid chance to crack the Top 125. Competing in the Wyndham Championship this week in Greensboro, N.C. — the final cut-off point for the money list and FedEx Cup points — Henry needs an 11th place finish (which would earn him $132,500) or better to jump into the Top 125 on the money list, or a T22 finish in the FedEx Cup points (he’s currently 130th)
According to a story on pgatour.com, Henry is one of just eight players to finish in the Top 125 on the money list every year since 2001 — K.J. Choi, Ernie Els, Jim Furyk, Sergio Garcia, Phil Mickelson, Geoff Ogilvy and Rory Sabbatini are the others.
“It’s been a very strange year for me,” Henry said to Brian Wacker of pgatour.com. “Yeah, it’s been frustrating.”
On Thursday, Henry got off to a very fast start, shooting a 4-under 66.
