Lee Janzen, two time U.S.Open winner, wow. That is great thing about golf, no longbterm, no trade contracts. You earn your way on the Tour.

And the last round of Q school on TV is the most compelling TV golf there is! Who can forget the guy who's ball jumped out of the hole on the penultimate hole of the last round of the Q School (Olgilvie??) several years ago signifying that golf can be the cruelest of games.

When does it start? Adam Hadwin is in it too. I think he is the next Canadian star.

Looks like Jim Rutledge is going to qualify for the Seniors Tour. He just birdied to more into 2nd place and is 3 shots clear of the dreaded 6th place. He just keeps plugging along.

Richard Scott has advanced to the Finals out of the Humble site.

Brad Fritsch, James Love have made it out of Texas.

With one round to go...

Gillespe is T-23 in Panama City.
Stuart Anderson is T-3 and Richard Lee is 6th and Wes Heffernan is T-34 in Cali.
Mitch Gillies is T-5 in Florida.

I was hoping for 13 out of the 26 to move on....:$

I could have missed some the are living in the States but I didn't notice many Canadian names.

Arguably, the toughest q-school tournament in the world only five get in and Jim did it. What an accomplishment.

Hadwin has been given an exemption by the Tour to go right to the Final Stage and yes, he is a rising star...

This highlights the greatness of (current) players like Phil Mickelson , Vijay Singh And Tiger Woods ..those guys are a class above the rest of the pack.

the average career at the top level in any sport is probably 3-4years. Golf is probably not that different in that respect
