    Dru Love

    Dru got another sponsor exemption. He is in dead last again. He has just under 20 career starts and cracked the top 50 exactly 1 time. He has made the cut less than a handful of times. On the Web.com Tour, he has made two starts and missed the cut both times.

    At what point does this "experiment" start taking away from other players and be no more than "dad giving him a spot"?

    Andy and Brendan on The Shotgun Start podcast are constantly talking about this and roasting Dru and the tour for the unwarranted exemptions. Dru is nearly always a non-factor but if the sponsors want to keep burning exemptions on him I guess that’s their prerogative. I’d say the time to move on is long past.

    I mentioned this on social media today in response to the Dru Love question: as long as media brings more attention to him when he tees it up, its generates exposure for the tournament which is what they look for in sponsors exemptions. Stop covering it and the spots start going away. Same with the John Daly cart situation.

    I’d say about 17 starts ago, I’d say 3 strikes and he’s sent down to the minors with same treatment. Enough is enough.

    I felt bad for Boo Weekly who is trying to get game back and was next on list for recent tournament but lost out to sponsor exemption to Tony Romo. I know Romo will bring in some fans but on the other hand Boo is trying to make a living and get back on tour.

    First Aunt Becky gets pinched for helping her kids out in school and now this. Clearly parents aren't allowed to help their children anymore.

    I saw this on twitter yesterday. I think the kid has to have a long talk with himself and see that golf isn't his career and needs to step aside so those that are better can get a shot.

    Dru Love. Dude Love. Cactus Jack. Mick Foley. Mankind. I don't care who gets exemptions.

    DFL isn't exactly nice but it's the sponsors choice. Next time give it to Steph Curry.
