The Amer­i­can earned a spon­sor’s ex­emp­tion to com­pete at TPC Stone­brae, but not ev­ery­one has greeted the news with the same gen­eros­ity…

Cole Og­den Give it to some­one who can ac­tu­ally ben­e­fit from it; a player is grind­ing every day to try and get out on Tour.

Bobby Rock Not ev­ery­one in the field has to qual­ify. That’s what spon­sor’s ex­emp­tions are for. It’s the com­pany’s pre­rog­a­tive.
