Nationwide Tour players to watch
Last year’s Nationwide Tour class was the youngest, and one of the best, in the tour’s history. Jhonattan Vegas, Keegan Bradley, Tommy Gainey, Chris Kirk, Jamie Lovemark and Kevin Chappell were among the 25 graduates. This looks to be another exciting year for the PGA Tour’s secondary circuit. Ty Tryon, Erik Compton, Billy Hurley and Camilo Villegas’ former caddie, Brett Waldman, all earned Nationwide status at last year’s Q-School. PGA Tour regulars like Will MacKenzie, John Merrick, John Mallinger and Jeff Quinney may make appearances on the tour after poor PGA Tour seasons.
