Stewart Cink was No. 319 in the world when he won the season opener in the Safeway Open. Robert Streb was at No. 380 when he won last week in the RSM Classic. They are among five players in nine tournaments this season who were outside the top 300 in the world when they won. It’s a reminder that winning is never easy, and that depth of talent worldwide is not limited to the top of the ranking.
