Q-School feel-goods off to hot starts


WINTER GARDEN, Fla. – Considering it’s just partway through the first round of PGA Tour Q-School finals and the arduous six-round race has hardly left the starting blocks, is it too early to think fairytale endings can come true?

Two of the week’s feel-good stories – Erik Compton, the two-time heart transplant recipient, and Brett Waldman, Camilo Villegas’ full-time caddie – are off to hot starts during this cool and windy Central Florida day.

Compton is 3 under through 13 holes, while Waldman is 4 under through 11. Kyle Stanley currently leads the way, 6 under through 12.
