Brendon Todd is rolling through PGA Tour Q-School.

The 2007 NCAA Division I Men’s East Regional champion shot a final-round 73 Saturday to complete an easy victory at the first stage of PGA Tour Q-School at Treyburn Country Club in Durham, N.C.

Todd (pictured) finished at 11-under 277, three shots ahead of former North Carolina standout Dustin Bray. Todd opened the tournament with rounds of 66 and 67 to pull away from the pack.

Todd won a Q-School pre-qualifier in September at Jennings Mill Country Club by 12 shots.

• New Zealand’s Brad Heaven, who played collegiately at Toledo, shot a second consecutive 72 Saturday to earn medalist honors at the first stage of PGA Tour Q-School at Kinderlou Forest Golf Club in Valdosta, Ga.

Heaven finished at 6-under 282, one shot ahead of 1997 U.S. Junior champ Jason Allred (70). Ricky Barnes (72), the 2002 U.S. Amateur champ, was third at 4 under par.

Christo Greyling (76), Stephen Gangluff (73) and 2006 Western Amateur champion Bronson LaCassie (76) finished T-4 at 2 under.

Former NCAA champion Nick Gilliam (T-13), 2006 U.S. Mid-Amateur runner-up Ryan Hybl (T-15) and 2007 U.S. Walker Cup team member Chris Kirk (T-25) also advanced. Kirk was Todd’s teammate at Georgia, where Hybl served as an assistant coach.

• Former Washington standout Troy Kelly shot 67 Saturday to complete a four-shot victory at the first stage of PGA Tour Q-School at San Juan Oaks Golf Club in Hollister, Calif.

Kelly finished at 20-under 268. He finished second at this site last year. Steve Holmes shot a final-round 71 to finish at 16 under par. Zack Miller (66), a member of Stanford’s NCAA championship team, finished third at 14 under par.

Matt Hansen (T-4), a PGA Tour member in 2006; former Arizona State standout Brian Nosler (T-4); and Brian Prouty (T-20), Golfweek’s No. 1 collegian for part of last year also advanced.

Robert Hamilton, runner-up in the 2001 U.S. Amateur, shot a final-round 72 to miss by a shot. Casey Watabu (70), the 2006 U.S. Amateur Public Links champion, missed by two shots.
