Olin Browne finished T-7 at the second stage of Q School at Callaway Gardens GC (Mountain View) in Pine Mountain, Georgia, and is one of 20 to advance to the final stage in December.
Not bad considering the veteran turns 50 in about six months (May 22). Among the notables with whom Browne will grind it out in the final stage are co-medalists Chris Riley and Robert Damron, Carlos Franco, Chris Smith, Jay Delsing, John Riegger, Bob Heintz, Chip Sullivan, Webb Simpson and Derek Fathauer, who turned pro in September. Notables failing to advance include Len Mattiace, Billy Andrade, Jim Gallagher, Jr., Jim McGovern, Ian Leggatt, Tom Scherrer, David Peoples, Trevor Dodds, Michael Clark II, Justin Bolli, Kyle Thompson, Michael H. Thompson, Chris Kirk, Mike Heinen (WD) and Tripp Isenhour (DQ). Two more second stage sectionals will be held November 19-22.
