LA QUINTA, Calif. - Former Ole Miss All-American Jonathan Randolph carded a 3-under par 69 in the final round of the PGA Tour’s WEB.com Tour Qualifying Tournament at the PGA West Stadium Course Tuesday.
Randolph finished the tournament 14-under par to finish in a tie for 32nd place with five other golfers. The Brandon, Miss., native carded six birdies in the final round, bringing his six-round total to 231.
"Getting my WEB.com card is a huge step in my career," Randolph said. "Since beginning my career at Ole Miss in 2007, I have been steadily progressing as a player. Getting my card just validates all the hard work and gives me the opportunity to play against some of the world's best players. I finished high enough to guarantee myself starts into the early events and get off on the right foot."
To earn a PGA Tour card, golfers must qualify through the WEB.com Tour. At the end of the season, the top 25 players on the money list advance to the PGA Tour the following year.
“I am really proud of Jonathan,” Ole Miss head coach Ernest Ross said. “He has worked really hard to advance this far. He is playing consistently well, as shown by having a total of 14-under par on two very difficult courses. I know I speak for all Ole Miss fans in saying we will enjoy watching his career in 2014. It is great to have a Rebel on the TOUR.”
A first team All-American selection as a senior at Ole Miss in 2010, Randolph has posted three National Golf Association Pro Golf Tour wins and was the NGA Co-Rookie of the Year in 2012.
