My day with Tiger Woods

After a highly successful (miraculous, more like) comeback at The Masters, Tiger Woods turned his thoughts towards competing in the 150th Open Championship at The Old Course in the middle of July. The question of a well-rehearsed, routine of coming to Ireland to...

Holywood’s Tom McKibbin is still in prime position to progress to the next stage of Korn Ferry Tour Q-School, despite seeing his lead cut to one shot on day two of First Stage Qualifying in Maricopa, Arizona.

threeThe 18-year-old produced a sensational opening round, carding a 10-under 62 at Ak-Chin Southern Dunes, and backed that up with a three-under 69 in his second round on Wednesday to lead by one at 13-under overall.

McKibbin only needs to finish in the top-20 and ties to qualify for the Second Stage, which will be held next month, with the cut mark currently sitting at five-under-par.

It was always going to be tough for the former amateur star to back up Tuesday’s incredible round, but he produced a solid outing that featured five birdies and two bogeys to maintain his position and, barring a disastrous final day, should have already done enough to qualify.

It was not such a good day in Winter Garden, Florida for both David Carey and Gary Hurley, who will both need good rounds to progress to the next stage after they slipped below the cut mark in their qualifier.

Both players shot three-over 74s in their second rounds at the Panther Lake course at Orange County National, with Dublin’s Carey slightly better placed in 46th at one-under overall, while Waterford’s Hurley is 57th at one-over.

The top-21 in Florida qualify for Stage Two, where the cut mark is one shot lower than in Arizona at four-under, so both players know a good final round will pull them back in contention.
