Cameron Tringale is the richest loser golfer

Cameron Tringale is the richest golfer ever without ever having won a single race on the PGA Tour. Tringale, finishing third last weekend at the Valspar Championship in Tampa Florida (won by Keegan Bradley) grossed $ 407,000.

A great check that brought his bank account well over $ 13 million (13,860,842 to be exact) in eleven years of honorable career on the PGA Tour. And that adjective is certainly not a stretch. On three occasions Cameron has finished second times (the last time in 2015), this season he has seven top twenty in the last ten games played.

In total in 2021 he passed the cut 13 times out of 17 starts.

Cameron Tringale, results

Cameron surpassed Brian Davis in the list of winless millionaires by playing 73 fewer races than him on the circuit. The American passion for statistics and rankings is well known.

So on specialized sites it turns out to be absurd that Cameron has earned much more in his career than colleagues who have even won Majors. Tom Watson stopped at $ 11 million, John Daly and Bernhard Langer at over $ 10 million.

Sure, the rise of Tiger Woods has driven the treasurers of the modern golf world crazy but the comparison between winners and placed is at least singular. The person concerned has made it known that he is not aware of the revenue leadership and frankly I believe him.

Instead of him, I would trade two or three positions in that ranking for a title on the PGA Tour. This professional in fact has a second record. He is the player in business with the longest series of initial races (299 today) without a success.

The good moment of form (he is number 65 in the world ranking, in December 2020 it was 103) and the law of large numbers are on his side. In game and results crisis, Dustin Johnson always remains the king of world golf. The American with 10.4787 points leads the world rankings with a reassuring gap ahead of compatriot Justin Thomas (FedEx Cup leader), second with 8.7767.

After the Valspar Championship and the Tenerife Open the Top 10 remains unchanged. After the 3rd place in Florida, the Norwegian Viktor Hovland jumped forward, from 15 / o to 11 / o (5.3040). While the feat at the Valspar Championship, the first in his career on the PGA Tour, allows Sam Burns to move from 94th to 44th position (2.5177).

Waiting to return to the race this week at the Wells Fargo Championship (6-9 May in Charlotte, USA) to try to reverse the course, Francesco Molinari is still losing ground. Last week 122 / o, the Turinese is now 128 / o (1.1872).
