    1975-76 Point Totals                 - Go Back -

    Top | Winter | Spring | Summer

    Segment Champs | 75-76 Totals | 1976 World Series of Golf


    1975-1976 Top PGA Tour Winners and Non-Winners, with total of Top-10 points
    earned during the period between the 1975 and 1976 World Series of Golf.

    NOTE: In parenthesis next to points totals is the overall rank in Top-10
          points earned between the 1975 and 1976 World Series of Golf
          (only the earners of 100-or-more points are so numbered.)


     1. Special Event Winners (may have also won other events)

        Jack Nicklaus ....... (413.29)(3) Players Championship
        Al Geiberger ........ (360.09)(6) Western Open
        Johnny Miller ....... (334.67)(7) The Open Championship,
                                          1975 World Cup Individual Champion

        Raymond Floyd ....... (247.34)(14) Masters Tournament

        NOTE: If the current Tour Championship event employed total Top-10
              finish points earned as the sole prime qualification method,
              with the cut-off set at the 30th list position (as is done
              in the current format), then major and important tournament
              winners such as 1976 PGA Championship winner Dave Stockton
              would not qualify for the Tour Championship.
             

     2. 2-or-more PGA Tour event winners

        Hubert Green ........ (489.50)(1)  4-time winner
        Ben Crenshaw ........ (478.31)(2)  2-time winner
        Hale Irwin .......... (407.84)(4)  2-time winner
        Don January.......... (378.43)(5)  2-time winner

        David Graham ........ (265.50)(11) 2-time winner


     3. PGA Tour single event winners

        J.C. Snead      (281.42)(9)     Lee Elder       (184.96)(22)
        Lee Trevino     (251.84)(12)    Gibby Gilbert   (175.01)(23)
        Rik Massengale  (241.13)(15)    Larry Ziegler   (157.63)(25)
        Mark Hayes      (211.44)(16)    John Lister     (147.77)(31)

        Bob Gilder      (204.34)(19)    Joe Inman       (129.00)(35)

        Tom Watson      (206.51)(18)    Ed Sneed        (147.14)(32)
        Mike Morley     (157.92)(24)    Larry Nelson    (122.84)(36)
        Lou Graham      (156.75)(26)    Charles Coody   (122.61)(37)
        John Mahaffey   (156.42)(27)    George Burns    (114.93)(38)
        Don Bies        (152.50)(28)    Gil Morgan      (108.48)(39)
        Miller Barber   (151.47)(29)    Billy Casper    (106.63)(40)

        NOTE: Tom Weiskopf led all players in this particular classification
              during the 1975-76 "wrap" period.   However, no invitational
              category was in effect for players such as him to qualify for
              the World Series of Golf.

              If the World Series of Golf's defending champion invitational
              category had not been in effect (see further down this page),
              then 1975 World Series of Golf winner Tom Watson would also,
              like Weiskopf, not have qualified for the 1976 World Series.

    How player qualified for the 1976 World Series of Golf

      1  Jack Nicklaus 	68 	70 	69 	68 	275/-5 	100,000.00
         Players Championship

      2  Hale Irwin 	71 	70 	71 	67 	279/-1 	50,000.00
         2-time PGA Tour event winner

      3  Dave Hill 	67 	70 	73 	70 	280/E 	20,000.00
         2-time PGA Tour event winner

      4  David Graham 	70 	71 	71 	69 	281/1 	15,000.00
         2-time PGA Tour event winner

         The first of Graham's two wins was the Westchester Classic, played
         the week after the 1976 Open Championship as a "Designated Event".
         All the 1975 Top 30 Money Winners, plus recent winners of Major
         Championships and the Players, as well as U.S. members of the most
         recent Ryder Cup, were required to play.

         The "Designated Event" experiment was in effect from 1974 to 1978.
         During this period, the Designated Events were -- In 1974, Colonial
         Invitational, Kemper Open and World Open at Pinehurst; In 1975, the
         Atlanta Classic; In 1976 Westchester; In 1977, Pleasant Valley (near
         Boston); In 1978, IVB-Philadelphia (Whitemarsh CC).

         For whatever reason (perhaps no good reason), the PGA Tour did not
         include Designated Events in the World Series invitational criteria
         in 1976, 1977 or 1978. Just imagine if much lesser-known players had
         won one of these "Designated Events" instead of David Graham (1976-
         Westchester), Ray Floyd (1977-Pleasant Valley) and Jack Nicklaus
         (1978-Philadelphia), and had wound up -NOT- qualifying for the World
         Series of Golf by other means!!!

         The second of David Graham's two wins was the final edition of the
         American Golf Classic, played on Firestone's North Course the week
         before the World Series of Golf.

         First available not otherwise qualified from Summer Tour segment
         (4th place, after Jerry Pate, David Graham and Al Geiberger)

     13	 Raymond Floyd 	69 	69 	72 	78 	288/8 	6,400.00
         Masters Tournament

    T14	 Billy Dunk 	75 	71 	73 	73 	292/12 	6,100.00

    T14  Don January 	77 	73 	71 	71 	292/12 	6,100.00
         2-time PGA Tour event winner

         January's first win was the 1975 Texas Open. His 2nd win was the
         1976 Tournament of Champions, an event which in those days might
         have almost been mentioned as being on the same level with the
         Western Open and Canadian Open. But the World Series' invitational
         criteria did not treat the "T of C" as a special event. Any T of C
         winner would have to earn a Firestone South ticket by other means.


    T16  Ben Crenshaw 	78 	71 	74 	70 	293/13 	5,700.00

     19  Dave Stockton 	73 	77 	76 	77 	303/23 	5,200.00
         PGA Championship

     20  Allan Henning 	73 	76 	77 	78 	304/24 	5,000.00
         South African Order of Merit


    NOTE: The British PGA Tour was not represented. Neil Coles had won the
          Order of Merit, but did not travel to America because of a fear
          of flying.

          The European PGA Tour was still in its infancy at the time, and
          Seve Ballesteros was just beginning his dominance of the circuit.
          However, no provision for Continental Europe was made for in the
          World Series qualifications.

          1975 U.S. Amateur winner Fred Ridley and 1976 British Amateur winner
          Dick Siderowf each chose to decline their invitations and play in the
          1976 U.S. Amateur, which was contested the same week as the 1976 World
          Series of Golf.
