The 2012-13 Haskins award winner Michael Kim is competing in second stage of Tour Q-School, Nov. 19-22. The California junior will compete as an amateur at Bear Creek Golf Club in Murrieta, Calif.

Kim is exempt into second stage of Q-School after his 17th-place finish in June at the U.S. Open at Merion, which earned him low-amateur honors.

Kim and fellow first-team All-Americans – Daniel Berger and James Erkenbeck – are also competing in second stage this week. Berger, who turned professional after his sophomore season at Florida State, will play at Southern Hills Plantation in Brooksville, Fla., and Erkenbeck, who graduated from New Mexico, will play with Kim out in California.

Kim’s fellow Walker Cup teammates – Max Homa and Justin Thomas – played last week and advanced to the final stage of Q-School at PGA West (TPC Stadium and Nicklaus TC) in La Quinta, Calif.

Chris Williams – a graduate of Washington and a 2011 Team USA Walker Cup player – will also compete this week at Bear Creek.

Kim isn’t the only amateur playing this week in Q-School. USC junior Anthony Paolucci is also competing at Bear Creek. He was the 2010 Rolex Junior Player of the Year. Also, Brady Watt, of Australia, is competing at the Gautier, Miss., site. Watt is the eighth-ranked amateur in the world and was a semifinalist at the this year's U.S. Amateur.
