Take a look at the leader board, all these guys are scoring in the mid/high 60s up to the T26th place. This is only the Web.com qualifying school, I think only the top ones get the play the PGA tour Q-School and compete against the 125 to 176 place PGA tour players.
I wonder if Dan really thinks he can shave 20+ strokes per round off his current scores just to get on the web.com tour Q-school leader board?
You can no longer get on the PGA Tour directly through Q-school, you now pretty much have to play the Web.com tour. There are a couple of exceptions to that, such as where you can get into some PGA events such as opens through qualifiers, and do well enough. But generally, Q-school gets you on web.com, and then you have to play well there to get the PGA card. I think all of those guys who made it to the final round get some kind of status for web.com, but you pretty much want to be in the top 45 names, which in that tournament meant an average round of 70 over 6 rounds.
So yeah, he's quite a way away from that, yet. I think he may only need to get his score down to around 80 (in those conditions) to have a shot at being a teaching pro, though. In the end, that might end up being what he has to shoot for if he really wants a career in golf.
