TAIII returns to Q-school: Mid-life crisis?
The last man standing at the driving range at PGA West on Monday evening was the oldest player in the field at the final stage of PGA Tour Q-school. Tommy Armour III has enjoyed a long, fulfilling career, which includes playing professional golf since 1981 (before probably half of the guys in the field were even born).
At age 52 the two-time PGA Tour winner played full-time on the Champions Tour in 2011, notching four top-tens in 23 starts to finish 28th on the money list. While he didn’t play any events on what he calls the “regular” tour for the first time since 1982, Armour decided to give it a go again, signing up for Q-school and winning second stage at the Hombre GC site to advance to this week’s final test.
