Pinehurst member Darron Stiles is the Web.Com Tour’s all-time career money-winner, which people who don’t know any better would say makes him the Crash Davis of golf. That isn’t accurate, of course, because Stiles has had five seasons on the PGA Tour, and the Web.com Tour success has translated to more than $1.8 million in earnings. Stiles has also earned more than $1.6 million in his six PGA Tour seasons.
Take that, Nuke.
After an up-and-down season on the PGA Tour, Stiles now finds himself a part of the Web.com Tour Finals, a four-tournament sprint to determine the 50 players who will earn their PGA Tour cards for the 2013-14 season. Stiles, a Pinehurst Country Club member, is a regular contributor to the Pinehurst Blog, and will share his experience in the new – and controversial – Tour qualifying process.
Howdy folks! I am back after a self-induced hiatus. (Golf will do that to you.) I will be writing over the next few weeks about the new structure for the PGA Tour qualification process.
PGA Tour Q- School as we have come to know it over the last few decades is no more. We are beginning a new process this season to determine the 50 players who will graduate to the PGA Tour.
And I’m a part of it.
