Waste Management Open Qualifier
Michael Schoolcraft, Alex Kim and Jim Knous will get to experience TPC Scottsdale’s rowdy 16th hole after Monday qualifying for the Waste Management Phoenix Open.
Schoolcraft led the way with a 10-under 62 at McCormick Ranch Golf Club’s Pine Course in Scottsdale, Arizona. Kim shot 63, while Knous fired 65. There are only three Monday qualifying spots available in the Phoenix Open field.
Schoolcraft, 24, has conditional status on the Web.com Tour after finishing T141 at Q-School’s final stage. He finished ninth on the Mackenzie Tour-PGA TOUR Canada’s 2016 Order of Merit. He played in one previous PGA TOUR event, missing the cut in the 2015 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.
The Oklahoma alum also Monday qualified for that event.
Kim, a former UCLA All-American, has played in one previous PGA TOUR event, missing the cut at the 2015 U.S. Open at Chambers Bay. He’s missed the cut in two of three career Web.com Tour starts.
