Bogey: Club Pros

Steve Schneiter can proudly claim the record for the most appearances in the PGA Championship by a golfer who qualified as a club professional: 12. Yet for the 11th time the 50-year-old from Sandy, Utah, (shown) played just two rounds rather than four after shooting a Friday 78. Unfortunately, he's got company among his club-pro brethren going home early; for the third straight year, none of the 20 in the field made the cut. (Ryan Helminen came closest, missing by one stroke.) Given how tough major championship venues are set up these days, it's asking a lot for those who sacrifice their own games to help improve the games of their members to shine. But the Cinderella stories are a whole lot better when there's somebody fitting into the glass golf shoes. --RH
