Q-School, Stage Two: Who's in, who's out


The second stage of PGA Tour Q-School is split among six sites across the country, three of which saw play conclude on Saturday (Click here for a review of the sites that completed play on Friday). Below is a recap of which players advanced to next month's final stage at each of the three remaining sites, and which notable players will be on the outside looking in for 2013:

Panama City Beach, Fla.

Medalist: Matt Fast finished four rounds at the Hombre Golf club at 13-under 271 to take medalist honors.

Cut line: Nineteen players shot 5-under 279 or better for the week, good enough to advance.

Who's in: Heart transplant recipient Erik Compton (8 under) will play at PGA West, as will former PGA Tour winners Len Mattiace and Glen Day (6 under).

Who's out: After a run at this year's U.S. Open, John Peterson (3 under) will not move on, nor will former Ryder Cup participant Brett Wetterich (even). Josh Broadway (1 under), he of the unconventional, cross-handed swing, also failed to advance.

Brooksville, Fla.

Medalist: Sweden's Robert Karlsson finished at 18-under 270 after four rounds at Southern Hills Plantation Club, two shots clear of the field.

Cut line: Twenty-one players shot 8-under 280 or better for the week to move on to next month's final stage.

Who's in: Tour winners Arjun Atwal (12 under) and Daniel Chopra (10 under) both earned spots at next month's final stage, where they will be joined by Billy Hurley (16 under), who was a lieutenant in the U.S. Navy before turning pro.

Who's out: Two-time U.S. Open champion Lee Janzen and former U.S. Amateur champion Bubba Dickerson (5 under) both failed to advance. So too did former Tour winners Frank Lickliter (6 under) and Robert Damron (7 under), and a strong golfing lineage could not help Sam Saunders (3 under) earn a place at PGA West.

Murrieta, Calif.

Medalist: South Korea's Si Kim completed four rounds at Bear Creek Golf Club at 19-under 269 to lead the field by one shot.

Cut line: Twenty-two players finished at 5-under 283 or better to earn a spot in the next round of qualifying.

Who's in: Former amateur standout Patrick Cantlay (8 under) qualified after shooting a 69 on Saturday, and he will be joined at PGA West by veteran Tom Pernice Jr. (7 under) and former British Amateur champion Bryden Macpherson (6 under).

Who's out: Tour veteran Duffy Waldorf (4 under) missed by a shot despite a final-round 68, while Bob May and Jason Gore (7 over) knew their fate was sealed much earlier in the day.
