UPDATE: Pro earns Web.com Tour status with clutch Sunday after getting clubs stolen

By

UPDATE (6:40 p.m. ET): A big win today for those who believe in the existence of karma.

Blick fired a Sunday 9-under 63 to jump 49 spots to a tie for 25th at 19 under. That means he went from well outside to in the top 40 and ties designation that grants him solid 2019 Web.com Tour status. His finish will give him exempt status for the first eight events of the season.

And he did all that on Sunday despite his clubs being stolen and having to use a makeshift set.

What a performance from Blick.

ORIGINAL STORY:

It may no longer be the incredible pressure cooker when it was PGA Tour cards on the line, but Q School stories don’t stop.

That was unfortunate for Cody Blick. The 25-year-old was preparing for the final round of the final stage of Web.com Tour Q-School (known as the Web.com Tour Qualifying Tournament) when he realized his clubs had been stolen.

While there’s never a good time for one’s clubs to be nabbed, we’re not sure the timing could be much worse in this instance. Brutal, really.

Blick knows this of course and took to social media looking for help.

For Blick’s sake, we hope he somehow retrieves his clubs.

He began the final round in a tie for 74th at 10 under. While reaching final stage ensures him conditional Web.com Tour status, Blick needs to finish the event in the top 40 and ties to earn real solid status on the 2019 Web.com Tour.

A finish between 11th and 40th (and ties) would earn him guaranteed starts in the first eight events on the 2019 Web.com Tour season. Those finishing Nos. 2-10 (and ties) are exempt through the first 12 events. The medalist at final stage is fully exempt.

Blick began the final round four shots back of the top 40 and ties benchmark.
