I really enjoy the game, but I found a missing golfer when player The Safeway Open. It is Maverick Mcnealy. Even though he played most of the year on the WEB.COM TOUR, he did have 7 starts on The Pga Tour. Would it possible to get him rated? Thank you

There will always be "missing" players in the PGA sets. We are able to rate everyone that scores a FedEx Cup point, as we state, because all of their statistical data is available to us. Players that do not score a point on the tour are not tracked, and therefore, we can not create a totally accurate card. In almost all cases, those players ARE tracked in other tours, Canadian, Web.com, Asian, etc. But, that data does not translate to how they performed on the PGA Tour.

We rate 250+ golfers on the modern sets, which covers all of the regulars, and notables from the European, Champions, and other tours. But, Sponsor exemptions like McNeeley, just can't be rated with precision.

Now, having rambled on about the reasoning, the "work around" for players like Maverick is to use the "Poor Golfer" card in the Main Game. While I would not be presumptuous enough to call McNeely a Poor Golfer, in terms of how he did in PGA Tour competition, this card "fits". It actually, in some cases may be slightly better than the golfer's actual performance. But, it will be close.

Thank you for the quick reply. I completely understand your reasoning. I really enjoy the game.
