LA QUINTA, Calif. — The final round of q-school is under way at PGA West, where the top 25 players and ties will receive PGA TOUR cards for next season.

With changes coming to next year’s schedule — after this year players in q-school will receive only Tour status — this is a particularly important year for players looking to lock up their future.

The final group will tee off in about 10 minutes with Steve Bowditch leading by one over Kris Blanks and two over Derek Ernst.

The more important number, however, is down the leaderboard.

Currently, 28 players are safely inside the magic number to secure a card. That includes the oldest player in the field, 53-year-old Tom Pernice Jr., and Patrick Reed, who is 4 under through his first six holes. Reed successfully Monday qualified six times on TOUR this season. Another good round today would get him a card.

You can follow the final round with our live scores and discuss below.
