2015 Q-School 3rd Stage – Final Round

Ran into Jon Shield shortly after arriving at the course. He’s a former LPGA caddie and ex-husband of LPGA pro Connie Chillemi. We followed Nicole Jeray on the back nine and reminisced about his six years on tour.

Unfortunately, with only one shot away from sneaking into the top twenty, Nicole doubled seventeen. Cheyenne Woods was in the group and brought it on the back nine to get her card. Dad was there to cheer her on.

It came down to the final hole for Wichanee Meechai. She was –5 for the day but had to finish on one of the hardest on the course, the ninth. Nine and eighteen were switched for the event so the demanding dogleg left par four was all that remained to secure her tour card. All she needed was a par but it wasn’t meant to be. Made double.

Biggest collapse goes to Victoria Elizabeth. Shot 78 and missed the playoff by one. Christine Song was not far behind. A 76 missed it by the same one shot.

Upstate Jay’s favorite player, Maude-Aimee LeBlanc, breezed in. I doubt if she’ll be back on the Symetra Tour. Too much game.

Yu Liu didn’t make the cut and neither did a Scottish player who brought her caddie from across the pond in lieu of the veteran American bloke she took at 2nd stage. Not implying a thing. Just saying.

Jon sent me this photo from 1995 courtesy of Tim Atsedes. It’s from a caddie softball game in Rochester NY.

Lovin’ my new phone. Here’s a tip I just found. Should work on all Android phones.

    For several years, a local course hosted one of the sites for the PGA Tour’s second stage of Q school. The last day was always interesting. One or two guys would throw up all over themselves to miss out, and one or two would go flag hunting with nothing to lose and make it. One year a guy holed out for eagle on the 72nd hole, knocking about half a dozen guys out of the third stage. I doubt anyone bought him dinner that night.
