When your losing first round in a lot of them, no it's not. He's honestly doesn't have the ranking to pick and choose what events he wants to play right now.
To me it's not suprising that his first full year on the tour he has had some struggles, generally happens after a breakthrough, it's not the time to start cutting back, he needs keep building that matchplay.
He is not some special guy who can play only a certain amount of toruny while the others play the usual tour. Maybe if he can get it through his thick skull that he is the same as everybody else then maybe his result will improve.
