Six brutal days at PGA West is what 154 players would have to endure as Final Qualifying wrapped up play on December 17th for the 2014 Web.com Tour. Split between the Nicholas and Stadium courses, this final event represented the culmination of 3 1/2 months of qualifying. Over 1,100 players participated in the qualification stages, and now those who remained would be battling for position for the 2014 season.
Web.com qualifying began at the 1st Stage for Andy Pope as he was exempt from Pre-Qualifying due to his prior year’s status. In the 1st Stage, Andy took medalist honors and carried that momentum into the Second and Final Stages. In the Final Stage, Andy got off to a quick start by shooting 68 and 65 on the first two days. After a -1 71 on Saturday, he made a charge by carding a 66 on day four. After Round 4, Andy (seen wearing a Periwinkle Logan Polo), spoke about the event and reflected on his play through the weekend.
Moving into the final two days, Andy was inside of the top 10 but fell to T11 on the final day as birdies were elusive. Still, over the course of the 6 rounds, Andy carded 2 eagles, 22 birdies, 77 pars and just 2 bogies.
