Brad Fritch Gearing Up for the Web.com Tour Finals

September 9 2015


If you're lucky enough as a golfer, you'll be able to take inventory at the end of the season and make note of a new shot or swing thought which has made you a better player.

Maybe it's using that area of improvement to get more comfortable playing at the bottom end of your scoring range and pushing that envelope.

If you're fortunate, you've got a new experience that will be of benefit in some future round.



For Rideau View member Brad Fritsch, he'll remember the regular season on the 2015 Web.com Tour for walking a tight rope.

"I lived on the cut line this year," he said as he prepared for the start of the four-tournament Web.com Finals which get under way Thursday, Sept. 10 with the Hotel Fitness Championship in Fort Wayne, Ind.

"As frustrating as that is, it hardens you. Most of the time I did make the cut, so there's something to be learned from that. As much as you'd like to be 10th or 12th and not focusing on making the cut, this year it was not meant to be. I fought all year long and that's a little bit of something."

Despite Fritsch's adventures on Thursday and Friday, he wound up a respectable 37th on the Web.com Tour money list with $116,804.

His ball striking was outstanding: he ranked fifth in that stat this season (20th in total driving and fifth in greens hit in regulation).

His putting was up and down this season. He is ranked 100th in putting, averaging 1.780 putts per hole (though guys who hit a lot of greens have a tougher time having great putting stats compared to guys who miss greens, chip or pitch up and leave themselves shorter putts).

Fritsch said after some experimenting - which included going left hand low for a couple of rounds - he had a breakthrough a couple of tournaments ago in Knoxville (season best tie for second) and is confident going into the Finals.

"I had two bad holes on Saturday and other than that played pretty well. I kind of got over the hump a bit with the putter," he said. "I focused on what I was doing well in the past. There were a couple of fundamentals I had gotten away from and hopefully it stays solid.

"I hit a ton of greens and that's the reason for the improved play of late. I feel confident."

Fritsch had a week off last week after playing 14 weeks in a row. He worked to cement his spot in the top 75 and then briefly flirted with the chance of cracking the top 25 on the money list and earning his 2016 PGA Tour card. He said he took four days off without touching a club and is feeling a little mentally refreshed after getting to spend time with his family.

The top 75 players on the Web.com Tour are joined in the Finals by the players ranked 126-200 on the PGA Tour.

The top 25 on the Web.com money list have earned their cards for 2016; another 25 cards will be handed out at the end of the Finals to the players who earn the most money in the Finals who are not otherwise exempt.
