Aragon and Kribel advance at PGA Tour's Q-school, Grube, Seki and Miller do not
First stage of qualifying for the PGA Tour is completed and two Cardinal golfers, Joel Kribel ('99) and Alex Aragon ('01) are moving on. Three others, Rob Grube, Jim Seki and Zack Miller failed to qualify.
Three Stanford alums, Rob Grube ('08), Zack Miller ('07), and Jim Seki ('02) competed in the first stage of PGA Tour qualifying at San Juan Oaks CC in Hollister, California. A fourth alum, Alex Aragon ('01) played in Southern California at Carlton Oaks CC in Santee, California. These are two of the 12 first stage qualifying sites being held around the country. Joel Kribel (previous post) has easily qualified earlier and moved onto the 2nd stage of qualifying.
In the four rounds Seki shot 69-71-70-75 (3-under and tied for 45th), Grube 69-72-72-71 (4-under and tied for 39th) and Miller shot 70-74-69-75 (even par and tied for 56th). It took a 7-under par score to make the low 24 and ties and move on to the 2nd stage of qualifying.

In his four rounds, Aragon shot 72-72-72-72 to finish tied for 11th in the Calton Oaks field with low 23 and ties qualifying for stage 2. Full results from the Calton Oaks qualifier can be found here: http://pgatq.bluegolf.com/bluegolf/pgatq8/event/pgatq814/contest/1/leaderboard.htm.
