Kanada has three children, so he already planned to play in the season finale at Disney next week. He tied for 10th at the Sony Open in January, and has made only three cuts in his last 10 starts - watching his spot on the money list slip from 94th to 123rd.
"I have to admit, I've been looking and trying to figure things out about how much it's going to take,'' Kanada said. "It probably hasn't helped me, but at the same time, when you're out there inside the ropes it's still just the game of golf.''
Let's make the math real simple: First prize here this week is $810,000. That'd take care of everything.
"I've been doing this for long enough where I know that being inside of 125 would be a really good thing,'' Kanada said.
