Nick Price gains 125th place on PGA Money List

The 2005 PGA Tour money race ended Sunday with the wrapup of the Tour Championship and the Southern Farm Bureau, and the top 125 players on the final money list secured full playing privileges for the 2006 season.

Nick Price, who skipped the Southern Farm Bureau Classic and left his fate in the hands of others, finished in the 125th and final guaranteed spot for 2006, edging out Briny Baird by about $2,500. Price finished the year with $626,736 in 16 starts, while Baird amassed $624,191 in 33 starts.

Also just missing out were No. 127-ranked Nick Watney, No. 128 Kirk Triplett, No. 129 Ben Curtis and No. 130 Michael Allen. Curtis, of course, retains full playing privileges for five seasons after his 2003 British Open victory.

Barely on the correct side of the 125 cutoff were No. 120 John Huston, No. 121 Ryuji Imada, No. 122 Tommy Armour III, No. 123 Kent Jones and No. 124 Craig Parry.

The players between Nos. 126 and 150 on the money list retained partial privileges for 2006. Those between 146 and 149 were Shaun Micheel (who retains full privileges because of his 2003 PGA Championship win), Frank Lickliter, Paul Goydos and Scott Gutschewski.

The 150th spot was captured by European Tour regular Thomas Levet of France, who edged out No. 151 Jay Haas by about $220. Haas, of course, is transitioning to the Champions Tour, where he has won multiple times in recent weeks. Also barely missing out were Cameron Beckman, Duffy Waldorf, Chris Smith and Lee Janzen.
