Here we go again. I know this is like standard operating procedure these days, but I’m no longer in my 20s (that ship sailed a while ago), and while I used to be able to multitask and do the job of eight people, that simply was not sustainable. I need to do a better job at adapting or adjusting to the times now that I’m no longer the new kid on the block. Yeah, I’m one of those grizzled, cynical veterans now! OK, not totally, but for longtime readers, you know what I mean.

Oh, so it’s now 1am and I’m in yet another delirious, exhausted, probably slightly-dehydrated state, which, as we know, results in rambling nonsensical garble and I should stop right now and delete, but you guys seemed to enjoy the … “entertaining” crap that I produced earlier this week, so I’m here to give the people what they want!

South Korean Si Woo Kim shot 18-under total over six rounds at PGA West–Nicklaus Tournament and TPC Stadium–to place T17th and became the youngest player at 17 years, 5 months and 6 days on Monday to graduate from PGA Tour Q-School. Previously, Ty Tryon held that record set in 2001, and unfortunately, as we know, he never lived up to the hype.

Because of the age requirement (18-years-old) to become a PGA Tour member and the condensed 2013 schedule, along with other provisions, Kim’s situation is somewhat complicated.

Let’s break it down.

The Dong earns medalist honors

Today was the last round of the last ever Q-school under the system that was in place since 1965. Longtime readers know I’m a Q-school romantic and I love the incredible stories and range of emotions, along with the drama, and I’m not alone. I’ve done my best over the past few weeks to describe the atmosphere.

To be honest, second stage was much more excruciating — probably because there wasn’t any live-scoring but in general the vibe was much more intense. Getting through second is usually the hardest part for the guys who have never made it to finals, along with the mini-tour journeymen, not to mention the veterans who had a terrible season.
