First Stage PGA Tour Qualifying Results
Last week four Cardinal alums, scattered across the country, competed in the First Stage of PGA Tour Qualifying School. Steve Ziegler (2011, pictured above) and Alex Aragon (2000) played their way into 2nd stage. Rob Grube (2008) and Dodge Kemmer (2009) fell short in their qualifying bid.
Ziegler fired rounds of 70, 70, 67, 73 for a 8 under total of 280--good for 2nd place. After opening with 72, 73, 74, Aragon rallied with a final round 69 to finish T21st, squarely on the cut line at even par.
Grube finished T25th, one shot above the cut line, and Kemmer finished 41st, five shots above the cut line.
Exempt from 1st stage, Zack Miller (2007) and Joseph Bramlett (2010) will join Ziegler and Aragon in the quest for a 2012 PGA Tour Card. Miller and Bramlett, both 2010 PGA Tour members, return to Qualifying School after finishing outside the top 125 on the money list.
