This week: Nationwide Tour’s Miccosukee Championship, Thursday through Sunday, Miccosukee G&CC, Miami.
World ranking: 571st.
2008 earnings: $127,506 (46th on the Nationwide Tour).
Last tournament: The Tacoma native is in the middle
of a season-best streak of six made cuts in a row, including a
tied-for-23rd at last week’s Chattanooga Classic in Tennessee. But for
the second consecutive week, Putnam has been in the top 10 at the
halfway point, only to falter on the weekend. In fact, he hasn’t shot
an under-par score on a Saturday or Sunday since his closing 1-under 70
at the Boise Open in mid-September. Still, he’s sixth in all-around
ranking (254 points) on the tour.
Tee time Thursday: 4:50 a.m. PDT off the first tee with Tyler Aldridge and Jarrod Lyle.
