Q-school media coverage
Lorne Rubenstein gives our two pro golfers, Danny King and Richard Scott, a nice plug in today’s Globe and Mail Sports Section:
Consider Danny King, a teaching pro at the Magna Golf Club in Aurora, Ont. King has an Ernie Els-like swing. It’s smooth and powerful, and he appears to have the right attitude for tour golf. King got through the first stage and is starting the next stage today at the Lake Jovita Country Club in Dade City, Fla.
These are only a few of the golfers of particular interest to Canadians. The list includes three-time Canadian Amateur champion Richard Scott of Kingsville, Ont.; Bryn Parry, the Vancouver golfer who lost a playoff in April at a Nationwide tournament; Peter Laws, the 2003 Ontario Amateur champion from Mississauga; Graham DeLaet of Weyburn, Sask., who finished 13th on this year’s Canadian Tour money list; and Wes Heffernan of Calgary. Heffernan won twice on the Canadian Tour and will be Weir’s partner in the World Cup.
Finally, spare a thought for Len Mattiace, the player Weir beat in a playoff to win the Masters. He was nearly a Masters champion, and now the American is at qualifying school.
So goes tour golf, Darwinian to the core.
The second stage of PGA Q-school begins today. Both Richard and Danny are competing on the same course in Florida. Fortunately, there’s plenty of room for both of them to finish in the top tier.
Best of luck, guys.
