Duval, Weekly and English heading to final stage of Q-School

Q-School -- The very thought of it will brings chills and terror to many golfers chasing their dream of teeing it up on the PGA Tour.

Many are the stories of golfers trying more than a dozen times before finally reaching their goals, or falling short of them.

Last week, 134 players from across the United States advanced to the final stage of the PGA Tour qualifying school (q-school). Which will be held at the PGA West course in LaQuinta, California November 30th through December 5th.

The players know making it through the different stages of q-school is just the first step. The final stage is a 108 hole grueling test of not only your golf game. But your mental capacity and toughness as well.

Heading to the final round of the Tour's q-school will be some pretty well known names in the world of golf, including David Duval, Boo Weekly, Sam Saunders and Harris English.

Duval of course being one of the biggest names to be seen at the final stage later this month, after finishing in a tie for second; with Jason Gore, at Bear Creek Golf Club in Murrieta, California.

The 2001 British Open champion and former No. 1 ranked player in the world has not seen top form in some time on the PGA Tour. Evidence by his presence in q-school.

Another very recognisable name heading to the final stage is Tommy Armour III.

T.A. III earned his way to the final stage by winning the second stage event at Hombre Golf Club in Panama City, Florida.

Fan favorite Boo Weekly was also with Armor at the Hombre Golf Club and finished in a tie for sixth to cruise into the final stage of q-school to try and earn his PGA Tour card back after a poor 2011.

Young standout star Harris English will also be making the trip to LaQunita after finishing in a tie for fourth at the Southern Hills Plantation Club.

English, of course made head lines this year by winning the Nationwide Children's Miracle Hospital Invitational on the Nationwide Tour as an amateur.

The PGA Tour Q-School is one of the toughest challenges a golfer will face throughout his career.

As you can see from the list of 134 goflers who made it through the different stages of this qualification process. It doesn't matter if you are a budding young rookie right out of college -- Or a major championship winner and former World No. 1 player.

It has no eyes, no memory, sympathy or forgivness.

It is simply the PGA Tour Q-Shool.
