With two eagles and posted the low round of the day, Winnipeg’s Adam Speirs hit a good start at the first stage of the PGA Tour’s 2010 qualifying school.
This player from Winnipeg, Manitoba host a final-day seven under-par 65 on Friday at Lantana Golf Club, eligible for a spot in the next stage in November. Speirs has been included in the top 23 players by finishing seventh in the field of 77.
Starting the day, the 31-year-old Canadian Tour regular was right on the bubble at one-under-par up to the third round.
According to Speirs, the weather was perfect so he thought the number was going down. The cut off number reached to four-under-par 284, but the Winnipeg golfer’s play assured he had four shots to spare.
In the end, Adam Speirs owned the four par-5’s on the last day, earning two birdies and two eagles. He earned a 30-foot eagle putt at the seventh, then posted a stream of steady pars until he got to the 13th. At the 16th and 17th holes, birdies were added.
”I had a tough lad putt for birdie up quite a hill,” Speirs said. “I left it 12 feet short. But I made that one for par and I really think that was my TSN turning point.”
2010 season hasn’t been a good year for Speirs, he has won $4,338 on the Canadian Tour in nine starts but his Speirs’ week of 70-72-73-65-280 puts him in ideal position as he heads to the second Q-school stage.
