Can't Tell the Cams Without a Scorecard
Monday, July 25, 2022

    If there was such a thing as PGA Tour trivia, and the question was to name as many Camerons (or Cams) as you can who are currently playing on Tour, it's a pretty good bet that not even the rest of the PGA players could name them all. A related question could be 'What does $21,244,921 represent?'

    The answer to question No. 1 is six. The answer to No. 2 is that's how much combined cash the six have earned as the 2021-2022 season nears its completion. 

    Talk about the old saw 'You can't tell the players without a program,' five of the six will be competing this week in the $8.4 million Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detroit, and most in the galleries are sure not to be able to distinguish between them.

    Here's a list of the six, where they stand on the money list, and how much each has earned.

2 - Cam Smith, $9,847,004.

11 - Cam Young, $5,672,611.

29 - Cam Tringale, $2,999,771.

 77 - Cam Davis, $1,507,069.

133 - Cam Champ, $841,338.

 171 - Cam Percy, $377,128.

    Obviously, none of the six is missing any meals, although Percy may have a problem retaining his exemption for the upcoming new season beginning in September. Of course, the list is minus the LIV guys - Dustin Johnson, Phil Mickelson, Sergio Garcia, Louis Oosthuizen, Branden Grace and the rest - who have been removed from the rolls by the PGA bigwigs. 

    Smith is the only one who has won this year and he's captured three titles. Davis won the one beginning Thursday last year, and last year Champ won the 3M Open, which Tony Finau won yesterday. 

    Finau closed with 67 and 72 holes in 17 under to nail down his third PGA title. Sungjae Im and Emiliano Grillo tied for second at 14 under, Grillo blowing his chance with a Sunday 71. James Hahn tied for fourth after a 65 which included an eagle hole-out from 69 yards out on the par-5 12th hole, followed by birdies on 14-15-16 for a back nine 31. Tom Hoge lost his shot with a Sunday 70 and finished at 13 under, and Scott Piercy, who just needed a 71 to win it all, blew up to 76 and wound up at 13 under. 

    Seminoles: Hank Lebioda, 7 under, tie for 16th; Chase Seiffert, 2 under, tie for 45th. Gators: Camilo Villegas, tie for 58th, +1.
