Brendon Todd Medals as 27 Earn PGA Tour Cards

The 2011 PGA Tour q-school or 'Hell Week' as it is called is now over, as Brendon Todd carded rounds of 71, 68, 69, 71, 68, 68 to earn medalists honors, along with a check for $50,000 and a trip to the PGA Tour.

All total, 27 players earned their 2012 PGA Tour cards in La Quinta, California over a grueling six round competition that is most likely the toughest challenge any of these players will ever face in their careers.

Todd, a Nationwide Tour player did not have a great 2011 to go along with a sub-par 2010 -- Missing the cut in 27 of 37 events over the last two seasons.

“I think I just really stuck to my game plan,” said Todd after letting everything sink in after his final round on Monday. “I was hitting it well coming into the week.”

Another Nationwide Tour player, Stephen Gangluff, finished second to Todd to earn his card and a $40,000 check for his second place finish.

With another q-school behind us and the 27 PGA Tour cards handed out, 12 of those players will be rookies on the 2012 PGA Tour.

All is not lost for those not earning their Tour cards in q-school.

52 of the players not making the big tour will have full status on the Nationwide Tour for 2012.

For the four past major champions in the field this year, David Duval, Rich Beem, Lee Janzen and Shaun Micheel.

The 2011 PGA Tour q-school did not yield a Tour card for them.

Congratulations to the 27 player who earned their 2012 PGA Tour card. See you on Tour in 2012.
