Following yet another trans-pacific long haul flight, the week following the Zhuzhou classic saw me in Lakeland Florida for the First stage of Korn Ferry Tour Qualifying.
A simple breakdown of the qualifying series is that there are 3 stages, each stage is 4 rounds and roughly the top 25 at each stage advance to the next stage. Once in the Final stage, the top 50 scores will receive tour cards for the Korn Ferry Tour for the following year. Now that the Korn Ferry Tour is the best path to the PGA Tour, it is ideal to bring the best form possible to these qualifying events, not to mention the hefty entry fee that makes most people gawk. Such is the beauty of professional golf and one of the reasons it brings all of us such a rush.
