Monday Morning Golf Report

Dec. 7, 2009

Nannette Hill, a 2009 graduate, is in the hunt heading into the fifth and final round of LPGA Q-School in Daytona Beach, Fla., Monday.

Hill put herself into a hole early-on as a second round 78 left her at 7-over par. But she rebounded a 2-under 70 in the third round, which was completed over two days as rain made a mess of the course on Friday and Saturday. Hill then kept the good vibes going as a 3-under 69 on Sunday vaulted her into a tie for 25th with a round to go.

The top-20 at the end of the fifth round will earn full-time status on tour and those players will likely have the ability to set their schedule at the beginning of the year. Places 21-40 will gain limited status throughout the year.

The final round started early Monday morning and real-time scoring can be found at www.lpga.com.

On the men's side, Kyle Reifers was trying to regain his PGA Tour card this week in Q-School action at Bear Lakes Country Club in West Palm Beach, Fla., but he too started off rough, carding 75-76 and was 7-over par. He was able to bounce-back with rounds of 70-71-71 to get back to 2-over but is currently tied for 89th and nine-shots off the qualifying number with a round to play.

Men's head coach Jerry Haas was also in action this past week at the Carolinas PGA final event of the 2009 season, the E-Z-GO CPGA Pro-Pro Championship at Pinehurst. Haas' partner for the week was fellow Wake Forest graduate Tim Straub.

The duo opened the event on Tuesday at Pinehurst No. 1 playing alternate shot. Despite struggling on the greens, the team posted a 5-under 65 and was in the top-10. The wet weather on Wednesday canceled the second round and forced the event to be shortened the 36-holes.

On Thursday, Haas and Straub fired a 10-under 62 on Pinehurst No. 8 in a scramble format. That left them at 15-under par but a pair of teams were able to rally and post 16-under. Hass and Straub finished in a tie for third just one shot back.
