I bet you were wondering how it is that Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth and Jason Day are all playing in what would ordinarily be classed as a "low key" PGA Tour event this week?  The week after a Major? The big guys never play the week after a Major?

McIlroy, Day and Spieth would rather be anywhere but Cromwell this week.

Of course they are not there by choice.  After a stressful week at Erin Hills, they would much rather be resting up by a pool somewhere than in Cromwell Connecticut.

So hats off to the PGA Tour who introduced a very clever rule change that linked supporting smaller events to keeping your PGA Tour card.

The new strength-of-field regulation this season, means top players who play less than 25 events in the previous season, must add one event that they haven't played in the last four years.

How clever is that?
