PGA Tour First Stage Qualifiers in Texas

One first-stage qualifier for PGA Tour Q-School is over, another one comes next week. On Saturday, play wrapped up at Stonebridge Ranch Country Club in McKinney. The full scores can be found here, but we'll list the 23 golfers who advanced into the second round:

Nick Mason, Cave Creek, AZ, 278
Jacob Rogers, Tucson, AZ, 280
Allen McFerran, Fayetteville, AR, 281
William Doughtie, Amarillo, TX, 283
Jess Daley, Palm Beach Gardens, FL, 284
Tom Kalinowski, Scottsdale, AZ, 284
Randy Lowry, Spring, TX, 285
Nick Killpack, St. George, UT, 286
Pierre Relecom, Belgium, 286
Madalitso Muthiya, Albuquerque, NM, 287
Colin Biles, Columbus, OH, 287
Josh Broadaway, Dothan, AL, 287
Blake Sattler, New Philadelphia, PA, 287
David Suggs, Orlando, FL, 288
Bobby Hutcherson, Memphis, TX, 288
Jong Yoon, San Ramon, CA, 289
Jorge Campillo, Spain, 289
Darren Angel, Northridge, CA, 289
Matt Rosen, Tucson, AZ, 289
David Morland, Winter Garden, FL, 290
Rob Rashell, Scottsdale, AZ, 290
Travis Hampshire, Zephyrhills, FL, 290
Nemanja Savic, Raleigh, NC, 290

Coming up Oct. 27-30 is another first-stage qualifier in Texas, this one at Lantana Golf Club. And in that field is hotshot 20-year-old Rickie Fowler who - as I write this - is tied for the lead in the PGA Tour Frys.com Open. If he wins there, he won't have to bother with Q-School.

The field also includes Tony Finau, currently a cast member of "Big Break Disney Golf" on the Golf Channel; as well as some of the top golf professionals (club pros and mini-tour players alike) in Texas including Stuart Deane, Jaxon Brigman, Martin Flores, Kelly Grunewald, Vince Jewell and Adam Rubinson.
