Former University of Florida All-American Scott Dunlap earned his PGA Tour card for the 2012 season on Monday by virtue of a t18 finish at Qualifying School.
Q-School, the six-day event which was held at PGA West on the Nicklaus Tournament and TPC Stadium courses, was played from Nov. 30-Dec. 5 and featured 172 golfers competing for PGA and Nationwide tour cards. The top-25 players and ties earned their PGA Tour cards at the conclusion of Monday’s final round.
Dunlap, who donned the Orange and Blue from 1982-85, finished the six day tournament at -10 (422) good enough to make the Tour by two strokes.
The 1985 All-American sat just outside the top-25 entering the final day at t29 after five rounds in the low 70s but was able to put together an impressive final round 68 to get inside the top-25 and earn his tour card for 2012.
Dunlap, who helped the Gators to the 1985 SEC Championship during his senior campaign, has competed in 184 PGA Tour events during his career, making 96 cuts and earning 33 top-25 finishes.
The list of former Gators who have competed on Tour is an impressive one which includes: Camilo Villegas, Chris DiMarco, Brian Gay and Major Champions Andy North, Mark Calcavecchia and Tommy Aaron. For their careers, UF golf alumni have amassed over $130 million in earnings.
