Peter Lonard was one of 20 to successfully advance to the final stage of Q School after a 1-under-par 71-70-72-70=283 in the second stage at Hombre Golf Club in Panama City Beach, Florida.
The Aussie is recovering from dual surgeries this year, so this is major step. South Korea's Seong Ho Lee was the medalist at 9-under 275. Other notables that survived: former PGA TOUR winners, Dicky Pride (276), Glen Day (277) and Guy Boros (282). Veteran members, Skip Kendall and Omar Uresti, also advanced with 278s, as did former PGA TOUR members, Darron Stiles (277), Tim Wilkinson (281), Nicholas Thompson (281), Craig Bowden (281), Brent Delahoussaye (281), Geoffrey Sisk (282) and Greg Owen (283). Erik Compton (280) also survived. Notables that missed the cut: PGA TOUR winners Brett Wetterich (287; still has one start on his Major Medical Extension), Len Mattiace (291) and Bob Burns (291). Former PGA TOUR members, Ken Duke (286), Jason Buha (286), Scott Sterling (287), Paul Claxton (288), Andrew McLardy (289), Ben Bates (289), Rick Price (292), Clark Dennis (295), Steve Wheatcroft (297) and Shane Bertsch (298; will have medical extension in the reshuffle category) fell short.
