Is this the PGA Tour's Q-School or a WFGT event?

Everywhere you look on the PGA Tour Q-School's First Stage leaderboard at the Grasslands Golf & Country Club, one unifying trend is found.

So many of the players inside the Top 23 have played on the West Florida Golf Tour in its inaugural season.

WFGT player Travis Perkins is leading through two rounds at 14-under par.

Perkins, who resides in Lakeland, is right at home at the Grasslands which is in Lakeland.

Sarasota's Brian Ward is also in the mix for advancement to the second stage after an opening 63 and second round 69 puts him at 12-under par for the first 36 holes.

Several other WFGT players are in the field, including Sarasota's Joey Lamielle and Fort Myers' Josh McCumber.

Both players struggled in their opening round with 75s, but rebounded with 69s to settle for a tie for 44th.

The top 23 and ties qualify for the next stage.

  1. Nice to see the success of the WFGT tour players. WFGT is reasonably priced compared to many of the other mini-tours and gives a lot of very good local players a chance to pursue their golf careers.
