PGA Tour (75x100)WINTER GARDEN, Fla. -- The PGA TOUR Qualifying Tournament is one of the most grueling events in golf, played out over six days beginning on Wednesday.
 
The low 25 finishers and ties from the large field at Orange County National will receive what everyone is there for: PGA TOUR cards for 2008. The next 50 or so players will earn fully-exempt status on the Nationwide Tour.
 
Just getting to the final stage of PGA TOUR Q-school earns you something, as the remaining players will all be eligible for nonexempt 2008 Nationwide Tour membership.
 
Last year, George McNeill fired five consecutive rounds in the 60s and won by five shots at 23-under 409. It was the largest margin of victory at PGA TOUR Q-school in nine years.
 
McNeill posted a 13th-place finish in his first start in Hawaii. Nine months later, he won the Frys.com Open, a Fall Series event, which helped him finish 61st on the money list.
 
GOLF CHANNEL will broadcast the final three days of action.
