Brendon Todd, Atlanta, a Pittsburgh native, withdrew from the second stage of the PGA Tour Qualifying School, because he was exempt into the finals. The final six rounds, will be played November 28-December 3 in LaQuinta, California at the PGA West Nicklaus Championship and Stadium Courses. Todd, won just under $475,000 on the Tour during this season, good for 150th on the money list.

Todd, 27, played Rolling Hills as a junior golfer until his family moved to Charlotte, North Carolina. He advanced through the 2011 qualifying schools, featuring a medalist showing in the finals. This is the final year of this format as next year's advancing to the PGA Tour will be based almost exclusively on Tour performance and ranking on the money list. The 2013 qualifying procedures will advance players, not to the PGA Tour.
