→ 17 year old Makes it Through Q-School

Si Woo Kiim, a 17-year-old South Korean, played an incredible six days of golf in Palm Springs, Calif., this past week, finishing tied for 20th place in the final stage of Q-School to earn his PGA Tour card for next season.

But not really. That’s because the PGA Tour has an age restriction on players becoming full members on tour, denying anyone under the age of 18 a card. Kim, who got through arguably the most grueling challenge in all of golf, won’t be able to use his earned PGA Tour card until he turns 18 on June 28. That will be more than 75 percent of the way through the PGA Tour season, and that’s just ridiculous.

I agree with Shane Bacon. Let the kid play. He earned it.
