Survivor: Golf Edition

Day 17 without playing golf

If there was a reality golf show, it would look a lot like Q-school. You start with hundreds of desperate-looking young (and not-so-young) men hoping to pass through three gut-wrenching stages to earn playing privileges on golf’s ultimate gravy train — the PGA Tour.

There are only 30 survivors. It doesn’t take a math whiz to understand that those are very bad odds.

Sure, there are probably a few bums out there who are in way over their heads. But most of these guys can flat play and just need a hot putter at the right time to get their card.

Look who’s trying to grab one of those 30 spots:

David Frost (10 Tour wins)
Bill Glasson (7 Tour wins)
Dan Forsman (5 Tour wins)
Jim Gallagher ( 5 Tour wins)

Also, Larry Mize (Masters winner) and David Edwards.

Unfortunately, their names and wins don’t mean anything at Q-school. Like everyone else, they’re just trying to survive.
