RSS

The second stage of PGA Tour Q-School is split between six sites across the country, three of which saw play conclude on Friday. Here is a recap of which players advanced to next month's final stage at those three sites, and which notable players will be on the outside looking in for 2013:

Plantation, Fla.

Medalist: Rob Oppenheim shot 21-under 263 for his four rounds at the Plantation Preserve Golf Course & Club.

Cut line: Nineteen players shot 10-under 274 or better for the week, good enough to advance.

Who's in: Tour veteran Kris Blanks (16 under), former Ryder Cup participant Ross Fisher (11 under) and Oliver Fisher (10 under), a winner last year on the European Tour, will all play next month at PGA West.

Who's out: Former U.S. Amateur champion Hank Kuehne, four-time PGA Tour winner Carlos Franco and former Web.com Tour standout Jamie Lovemark (9 under) all missed by a single shot, while Tour veterans Notah Begay (3 under) and Jesper Parnevik (3 under) were further back in the pack.

Humble, Tex.

Medalists: Franklin Corpening and Patrick Reed both completed four rounds at the Redstone Golf Club in 14-under 274.

Cut line: Twenty-one players shot 7-under 281 or better for the week to move on to next month's final stage.

Who's in: Tour veteran Kevin Kisner (13 under) and reigning U.S. Amateur champion Kelly Kraft (12 under) advanced with room to spare, while former PGA champion Shaun Micheel and Sweden's Alexander Noren (7 under) both made it on the number.

Who's out: Former U.S. Ryder Cup participant Chris Riley, four-time PGA Tour winner Joe Durant and veteran Roland Thatcher (5 under) all missed advancing by two shots.

Who's in: Two-time PGA Tour winner Paul Stankowski (19 under) and former Big Break contestant James Nitties (14 under) made it through easily, while Kevin Tway (11 under) and former British Open winner Todd Hamilton (12 under) had to sweat it out. Jeff Klauk (12 under) also advanced, only months after brain surgery to help alleviate seizures.

Who's out: Amateur standout Jordan Spieth (8 under) will likely now return to the University of Texas next year, while former Presidents Cup participant Woody Austin (8 under) and former PGA Tour winner Nathan Green (6 under) both also failed to qualify.
