Landry Earns WEB.COM Tour Status for 2015
PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – Former Arkansas men’s golf standout Andrew Landry entered the sixth and final round of the Final Stage of the Web.com Tour Q-School in sole possession of second place and held on to that spot on Tuesday with a three-under 68 at the PGA National Champion Course.
With his second place finish, Landry is exempt through the first three Web.com Tour re-rankings in 2015 based on early season performance. He joins fellow former Razorback standout Sebastian Cappelen on the Web.com Tour in 2015. A 2014 graduate, Cappelen finished 26th on the Web.com Tour money list last year and is fully exempt in 2015 due to winning the Air Capital Classic.
The exhausting six-round tournament was played on the Champion and Fazio Courses at PGA National, as Landry finished the six days at 20-under par. Landry was the only player in the field of 150 players to shoot in the 60s each of the final five rounds.
Landry’s 71-67-67-69-67-68 scorecard featured a tournament-best four eagles over the six rounds and even more impressive was his lone double-bogey over the 108 holes came on his 104th hole of the event. Over the two different courses, Landry combined to shoot 15-under on the front nine and had a total of 25 birdies for the tournament.
An All-American and All-SEC selection each of his three years (2007-09) as a Razorback, Landry finished fifth on the Adams Pro Tour money list in 2014. He won the Bay Oaks Open last May on the Adams Pro Tour and has finished runner-up three more times in his last six events on the tour. Landry advanced to the Final Stage of Q-School on the strength of a seven-under 64 in the third round of the Second Stage also at Hombre Golf Club in Panama City Beach, Fla.
