Former Saint Mary’s golfers Ben Geyer and Mac McClung advanced through the first of three stages of qualifying for the Web.com Tour.
Geyer finished in a tie for 29th place, right on the cut line, in the 72-hole first stage that concluded today at Morongo Golf Club at Tukwet Canyon in Beaumont, Calif. He fired rounds of 71-74-70-69 for a 4-under par 284.
McClung qualified for the second round two weeks ago with an 11th place tie at 5-under par 283 with rounds of 67-73-72-71 at Southern Dunes Golf Club in Maricopa, Ariz.
According to PGATour.com, Q school provides access to the 2015 Web.com Tour for players who can advance through all three stages (some were also required to advance through pre-qualifying, which wrapped up on September 19).
There will be three more first-stage events this week, and three next week. All six second-stage events will take place in November, and the final-stage event will be held December 11-16 at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.
