With Fritsch having to withdraw a couple of weeks ago because of his foot injury and missing last week's BMW Charity Pro-Am, he dropped a spot on the Web.com money list, from second to third. Fritsch has $186,989.58 and was passed by Richy Werenski who has $258,957.50 to take over second place behind Wesley Bryan ($280,693.09).
Fritsch is being pursued by Ryan Armour who is just behind him in fourth spot at $183,241.16.
Fritsch is hoping his foot is well enough to get him back in action at the Web.com Tour's next event next week at the Corales Puntacana Resort and Club Championship in the Dominican Republic.
Brooke Henderson will be trying to make a favourite Olympic memory for Canadians this summer in Rio as golf returns to the five-ring circus. You can find out her favourite Olympic memory here in this video LPGA.com made with a number of players: http://www.lpga.com/.../favorite-olympic-moments-with-lpga-pl....
It's interesting that it is Henderson's picture they use on LPGA.com to promote the video, another indication of Henderson's growing popularity.
After her great run of eight straight top 10 finishes on the LPGA Tour, Henderson has been T19, T29 and T26 in her last three starts. Her scoring average has crept over 70 (70.02, still good for fifth on Tour) and she has dropped a spot in the World Rankings, slipping to sixth in the world.
What's impressive about what she's done so far is her putter hasn't really been hot yet. She ranks 25th on Tour in putts per greens in regulation (1.79) and is 34th in putting average (29.69).
She ranks third in rounds under par (36 of 48 rounds played) and is second in birdies with 190.
She will be back in action this week at the LPGA Volvik Championship in Ann Arbor, Mich.
Henderson is off at 12:59 on Thursday afternoon.
