Kyle Stough

Dec. 20, 2013

Charlottesville, Va. - Former Virginia men's golf standout Kyle Stough (Laurel, Md.) has qualified for the Tour for 2014 following the tour's qualifying school event. Stough finished tied for 38th to earn exempt status on the Tour until the second periodic re-order of the 2014 season. The Q-School event was held at the PGA West Stadium Course in La Quinta, Calif.

Stough shot 13-under 419 during the six-round tournament. He had scores of 70, 70, 75, 70, 69 and finished with a 65. Zach Fischer finished first at 31-under 401.

Stough has competed as a PGA TOUR Canada member the past two years. He finished 10th on the 2013 Order of Merit, earning an exemption into the final stage of the Tour Qualifying School. He had a pair of runner-up finishes on the PGA TOUR Canada, placing second at the Wildfire Invitational and the ATB Financial Classic.

Stough competed at Virginia from 2006 to 2010. He helped the Cavaliers to three consecutive appearances at the NCAA Championships and recorded seven top-10 showings during his career.

"The Tour Qualifying Tournament is one more signal of the PGA TOUR's commitment to the Tour, and further elevates the Tour as the path to the PGA TOUR," said Tour president Bill Calfee. "With its similar format and the hundreds of participants who will enter, the Tour Qualifying Tournament will provide lots of drama, storylines and, unfortunately for some, the heartbreak and disappointment we've come to expect year-in and year-out at 'Q-School'".

The job will not be handed to rising sophomore Joey Blount. He'll have to earn it. This is head coach Bronco Mendenhall's program, after all. But after spending the 2017 season as free safety Quin Blanding's understudy, Blount is the leading candidate to take over in the secondary for the University of Virginia's all-time leading tackler.
