WINTER GARDEN, Fla. – Georgia College Athletics Hall of Famer David Robinson played in the third round of the final stage of PGA TOUR Q-School Friday, posting his best 18 holes yet. Robinson shot one-under par, and is at two-over after three rounds, tied for 77th place.
Robinson shot a first-round 73 on the par-72, 7,493-yard Crooked Cat course, following that up today with a 72 on the par-71, 7,350-yard Panther Lake course. He added a 71 today, switching back to Crooked Cat. Robinson posted just one hole over par today.
One of 166 golfers vying for PGA TOUR cards, Robinson hopes to join the top-25 players and ties in order to receive cards for 2011. The next nearest-number-to-50 will earn fully exempt Nationwide Tour cards for 2011, and the remainder of the field will receive conditional Nationwide Tour status.
