There's a lot of Pepto-Bismol being sold in La Quinta this week. At PGA West, 161 of the best golfers not to have their PGA Tour card for 2009 are playing for their futures. The field is an odd mix of the familiar and unfamiliar.
Bob May once nearly took down Tiger Woods in the 2000 PGA Championship at Valhalla, but now he's just hoping to regain his card at Q-School. Frank Lickliter II won the 2007 edition of Q-School, but he's back, too. Notah Begay III, Carlos Franco, Glen Day, Robert Garrigus, and Harrison Frazar are teeing it up with Major Manning, Alex Aragon, Vance Veazey, and the Golf Channel "Big Break" alumni James Nitties and Tommy "Two-Gloves" Gainey, all vying for the coveted PGA Tour card that will give them a shot at very comfortable living for life.
