Q school

The Q School ended this weekend at PGA West, with 35 lucky pros joining the PGA but a bunch others suffering major heartache. The Q School is where grown men often weep, failing to break through to the PGA tour. There’s usually so much pressure, since golfers are fighting for the livelihoods in 6 pressure packed rounds. This year’s course at PGA West had a number of holes that were absolutely treacherous — train wrecks waiting to happen.

Bill Haas, Jay Haas’s son, failed to make it by 2 strokes. SI has a couple of other misery stories:

“And there was the usual dose of heartache. None was greater than Bob Burns, who won the Funai Classic at Disney two years ago. He was in the middle of the 18th fairway, one shot above the cut line, when he hit into a bunker and three-putted for double bogey to miss his card by a single shot.

Joel Edwards, another past PGA Tour champion, was on the cut line until hitting his tee shot into the water and taking double bogey. He took a long walk to the parking lot, letting out guttural screams and pounding his bag along the way, paying his caddie and slamming his car door as he drove off.

They were among 51 players who at least have full status on the Nationwide Tour next year.”
