Would you lose $183,826.22 if you slept in?

I was going to write some golf blog posts today, but I slept in…

I like Jim Furyk.  He’s a gritty player (#3 in the world) and seems like a nice cat.  Apparently he made a little boo boo this week though.  He uses his cell phone for his alarm in the morning, but his battery died.  He missed his Wednesday morning pro-am tee time at the Barclays by five minutes.  That made him NE (not eligible) for the tournament.

Quick math

I did some quick math.  Furyk has made $3,308,872 in 18 tournaments this year.  That averages $183,826.22 per tournament.  So he arguably missed out on $183,826.22 based on those numbers.

I can’t imagine being in a situation where I’d lose $183,826.22 if I slept in.  The worst it is for me when I sleep in is that my automatic coffee has already shut off and I have cold coffee in the morning.
