This December, the US Professional Golf (PGA) Tour Qualifying School (hereinafter referred to as Q School), which is revived, will be held at TPC Sawgrass, which hosts the Players Championship, the ‘5th major tournament’.
U.S. golf media outlets such as Golf Week and Golf Channel reported on the 2nd (Korean time) that the venue for the PGA Tour Q School, which will be held again after 11 years since 2012, will be held at TPC Sawgrass’ Dyce Valley Course and nearby Sawgrass Country Club. . 메이저놀이터
The Dyce Valley course, which belongs to TPC Sawgrass, was the course where the Players Championship was held from 1977 to 1981 until it was moved to the current Stadium Course. Sawgrass Country Club, a 27-hole course that was renovated in 2016, hosted the American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) Invitational.
Q School, which was the gateway to the PGA Tour, was abolished at the end of December 2012. At that time, Kim Si-woo (28) of Korea set the record for the youngest passer at the age of 17 years, 5 months and 6 days, and Lee Dong-hwan (36) passed first.
After the abolition of the PGA Tour Q School, it was changed to the way to enter the PGA Tour after going through the second part tour through the Korn Ferry (Part 2) Tour Q School. However, after players were taken away by LIV Golf Invitational, which was founded with the support of Saudi Arabia’s public fund PIF last year, it was revived to prevent the outflow of promising players.
The PGA Tour did not announce the detailed schedule of Q School, which will be held again after 11 years, but announced some plans last year to give a total of five tickets.
