Posted December 13, 2010 - Pennsylvania Golf Association



Jonathan Mills, Indiana, PA, shot 75-71-71-70-67-69 - 423 in the Final Stage of PGA Tour Qualifying School at Orange County National GC, Winter Garden, FL, near Orlando. He finished t-41, four strokes from securing his 2011 PGA Tour card. A first round 75 placed Mills well behind, but he rallied over the final five rounds. He was only two strokes from 25th place (and ties) and his card with eight holes to go, having played four under for his first ten. He then played the final holes in two over. Mills, who finished 33rd on the Nationwide Tour money list, had already secured playing privileges on that Tour for next year. In his seven years of professional golf, Mills will have played five years on the Nationwide Tour and two on the PGA Tour.
