63 not enough to play in this week's Web.com event
Wednesday, June 27, 2012
Want to play on the Web.com Tour? Be prepared to go low. Shooting 63 wouldn’t have been enough to guarantee a spot in this week’s United Leasing Championship in Indiana.
That number only would’ve earned a playoff spot at the event’s Monday qualifier at Quail Crossing Golf Club in Boonville, Ind. It took a 64 to get into a playoff at the other Monday qualifying site, the Country Club of Old Vincennes in Vincennes, Ind. This Nationwide Tour qualifier, like most, took place at two golf courses, with seven tournament spots available at each site.
Quail Crossing is a 6,758-yard, par-71 layout with a 72.8 course rating and 132 slope. Old Vincennes is a 6,271-yard, par-70 layout with a 70.7 rating and 137 slope.
Scott Langley and Drew Weaver were medalists at Quail Crossing with 10-under 61s, while Adam Mitchell shot that number to be medalist at par-70 Old Vincennes. Mitchell and Weaver were teammates on the 2009 Walker Cup team; Langley represented the United States at the 2010 World Amateur Team Championship.
Those scores weren’t as noteworthy as the ones that didn’t make it in the tournament. Morgan Dobbins and Ryan Nelson are sitting at home after shooting 8-under 63 at Quail Crossing. They were the two players left out after a 6-for-4 playoff for the final spots in the Nationwide Tour event.
Isaiah Telles and Brian Anderson both shot 6-under 64 at Old Vincennes. Neither is in the field this week. They lost a playoff to Jack Fields.
