Osachoff Mills Among Tour Card-Holders

By Marty HenwoodSeptember 23, 2001, 4:00 pm
Canadian Tour-LargeIt didnt take Calgarys Brent Osachoff long to gain back his Canadian Tour playing privileges following Fridays final round of the Canadian Tours Fall Qualifying School.
Osachoff fired a final-round 1-under-par 71 to wind up the four-day tournament at 5-under 283, two shots better than fellow Calgarian Wes Heffernan and hot prospect Jon Mills (Brooklin, ON). Heffernan and Osachoff, who both played on the Canadian Tour this past season but lost their cards after failing to finish in the Top 80 on the McDonalds Order of Merit, were two of eight 2000 Tour members who won exempt cards back Friday. A total of 15 exempt cards, as well as an additional 11 conditional, were handed out for the 2002 campaign following play Friday.
Coming out of amateur this past season, it was a bit of a shock to me to step right in and play at that level, admitted Osachoff. It was a bit of an adjustment, but Im ready now. Im there physically; its just the mental part I have to improve on. The top guys on Tour will always be there, but the depth on this Tour is amazing.
Mills, 23, who recently finished 6th in the NCAA Nationals while at Kent State, will attend the PGA Qualifying School later this fall. Either way, he knows he will have his work cut out for him on the Canadian Tour should he not qualify down south.
Getting a card was my goal coming in, so it feels good to play well here, he said. Thats what Im looking for-that experience that will take me to the next level. I want to set some goals for myself, and set them high.
At the Bayer Championship in Sarnia last weekend, Hearn wound up the low Canadian (T5th), and was just a couple of groups back of Jason Bohn (Atlanta, Ga.), who carded a final-round 58 Sunday, the first time that score has ever been recorded in tournament play. Hearn feels that shows the level of talent on the Canadian Tour, and he looks forward to the challenge.
I wasnt going to look at the board (last Sunday), but I couldnt help it, laughed the 22-year-old. Something seemed out of place, and it was his 9-under through 7 holes. But now I know at least I have somewhere to play next year. Im not going to put too much pressure on myself.

Schauffele just fine being the underdog

By Rex HoggardJuly 21, 2018, 8:06 pm

CARNOUSTIE, Scotland – Following a breakthough season during which he won twice and collected the PGA Tour Rookie of the Year Award, Xander Schauffele concedes his sophomore campaign has been less than stellar, but that could all change on Sunday at The Open.

Schauffele followed a second-round 66 with a 67 on Saturday to take a share of the 9-under-par lead with Jordan Spieth and Kevin Kisner.

Although he hasn’t won in 2018, he did finish runner-up at The Players and tied for sixth at the U.S. Open, two of the year’s toughest tests.

Full-field scores from the 147th Open Championship

“Growing up, I always hit it well and played well in tough conditions,” Schauffele said. “I wasn't the guy to shoot 61. I was the guy to shoot like 70 when it was playing really hard.”

Sunday’s pairing could make things even more challenging when he’ll head out in the day’s final tee time with Spieth, the defending champion. But being the underdog in a pairing, like he was on Saturday alongside Rory McIlroy, is not a problem.

“All the guys I've talked to said, 'Live it up while you can, fly under the radar,'” he said. “Today I played in front of what you call Rory's crowd and guys were just yelling all the time, even while he's trying to putt, and he had to step off a few times. No one was yelling at me while I was putting. So I kind of enjoy just hanging back and relaxing.”
