Cink Heading Home Early


PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – Stewart Cink picked at his plate in the plush player’s grill at TPC Sawgrass and didn’t look like a man steamed by his plight, and that third-round 77 likely hurt more than your off-the-shelf 5-over effort, but the mathematical reality was he was heading home early.
Cink’s 4-over total left him tied for 77th midway through Saturday’s third round and meant he would likely miss the secondary cut. For the fifth time this year more than 78 players advanced to the weekend (83) and triggered the circuit’s secondary axe.
Considering how much harder TPC Sawgrass seemed to be playing, Cink may end up being the lucky one.
