Three Utahns Reach Last Stage of Last PGA Q-School
The last PGA Tour Q-School takes place November 28th through December 3rd on the desert in Palm Springs and three players with Utah connections are entered in the competition in which the main goal is to earn a PGA Tour Card for 2013. The Utahns in the field include former BYU player Dean Wilson, Scott Pinckney, and Dusty Fielding.
Beginning next year those who earn PGA Tour cards will be determined by the leading money winners from the Web.com Tour, and the PGA Tour School will determine those who are eligible for the Web.com Tour.
Wilson currently lives in Las Vegas and has previously had a PGA Tour card. Pinckney, originally from Orem, played junior golf in Utah and college golf at Arizona State. Fielding won a first stage event in Dayton Valley, Nevada and advanced to the final stage by earning a last place qualifying spot at Bear Creek Golf Club in the second stage. Fielding is a late blooming native of Richfield. (See accompanying story).
Those with Utah connections who entered the Q-School and lost in the first stage included Cameron Edens, Dustin Pimm, Clay Ogden, Nick Killpack, Devin Daniels, Boyd Summerhays, and Alexander Theodore.
Losing in the second stage were Tony Finau and Steve Schneiter.
