Q-School for 2019 in GC Paderborner Land
Pro Golf Tour Qualifying School
On October 11th and 12th members of the Pro Golf Tour and all newcomers will have the chance to earn a category for the 2019 Pro Golf Tour season. In GC Paderborner Land in Salzkotten in Germany there are two rounds of strokeplay scheduled in order to earn starting rights at the tournaments of the upcoming season.
Salzkotten/Germany - Full booked fields, attractive tournaments: If you want to be sure that you will be able to compete in all tournaments of the Pro Golf Tour in the 2019 season, you have to secure a good category. For this purpose, the Pro Golf Tour organizes a two-day qualifying school at Golf Club Paderborner Land in Salzkotten/Germany in October 2018 .
On 11th and 12th October 2018, up to 96 players will go to the tee to secure themselves playing rights in one of the 90 categories to be awarded. But be careful when scheduling: If there are more than 96 entries for the Q-School tournament, which is very likely to happen, a prequalification will be played on October 9th and 10th. Each player completes a counting game round on one of the two days; the top 48 of each qualifying round then have the right to play the first Q-School round for the 2019 season on October 11th.
At the 2018 Qualifying School for the 2019 season professionals and amateurs with a handicap of -3.4 or better can participate. Players who finish in Categories 1, 2, 3 or 4 on the 2018 Pro Golf Tour are not eligible.
