    How is your golf game? You want to become a PGA Golfer? These guys are the best around. Every year golfing professionals from around the world battle it out for the privilege of playing on the PGA Tour in the grueling PGA Tour Qualifying Tournament (Q School), conducted by the PGA Tour.

    If a player is already on the PGA Tour, they must either have an existing Exemption or finish better than 125th in the previous year or they lose their PGA Tour status. Without PGA Tour Status, they must fight for one of the 30 golf spots available in the official PGA 'golf-a-thon' called Q-School.  © 1998-2019 Privacy Policy
