Is he a pga member or not. Bolton says he is but I am surprised to see he is not listed in any wgc's or majors?

If he is a member how many tournaments does he _have_ to play to retain membership? Thanks in advance.

He was not a member in 2018 - 2019 but is a member in 2019 - 2020:

Appears he will be a member of both the ET and PGA Tours. Like others. Unless his game falls completely off the map over the next couple of months he will be eligible for all majors/WGC events based off of his world ranking. As of today his world ranking is 30th. For the PGA Tour he needs to play 15 events. Not sure where you are seeing he is not listed to play the WGC/Majors.

He's a good player, but I don't think he has the game to do well on the PGA tour. In fact I would wager that his world ranking will drop if he plays more PGA events just because of the weighting given to the Euro Tour.

**_Not sure where you are seeing he is not listed to play the WGC/Majors._**

 

Yes I was going by Rob Bolton's list on WGC and major qualifiers and did not see his name on his list. Maybe there are specs for _that_ particular list I am missing. Thanks for clarifying tho.

Thanks. Tossup between him, Ryder and Berger as my wildcards for a pool I am in. I know if Fitz gets into majors and wgc's that will be an advantage over the other two. OTOT I took Pieters a couple years ago and got basically screwed. :-0

Really struggled when he won the US Amateur.

Fitzpatrick is a much better golfer than either Ryder or Berger. I'd take a flyer on Fitzpatrick even if he plays fewer tournaments here in the States. At least you will get the free WGC points with him. Actually from what I understand his girlfriend lives in the US so maybe that motivates him to play more PGA events this coming season.

Snizzle, thanks. I had him, stroked him out, put in Ryder, stroked him out, put Berger in but think I am going to go with my initial gut feeling and take Fitz. If he's another Pieters oh well, there is always next year. :-)

> Matt Wallace OTOH apparently declined membership even though he had more than enough FedEx points too.

 

On the PGA Tour website, Matt Wallace is listed as joining the PGA Tour for 2019-20.
