Creel, Gellerman, Kropp, Carney and Worrell advance to second stage of Q School

The first stage of qualifying school for the 2017 Tour is well under way and some Oklahomans have already moved on while others have been relegated to another year of working on their dream.

At the Lantana Golf Club in Lantana, Texas, former University of Oklahoma golfer Michael Gellerman shot 12-under par and finished tied for 10th. The top 25 and ties go on to second stage.

Also in that event, Will Kropp of Edmond shot 10-under and tied for 18th, while a pair of former University of Tulsa golfers advanced on the number as Stephen Carney of Tulsa and Chris Worrell of Jenks shot -9 and tied for 23rd.

Not in the top 25 in that event were Hunter Sparks of Oklahoma City and former Oklahoma State golfer Pablo Martin. 

Former University of Central Oklahoma golfer Josh Creel shot 6-under par in a first stage event in Nebraska City to tie for 16th and advance to second stage. Former Oklahoma State golfer Jordan Niebrugge shot 4-under and tied for 28th and will have to find a different path. Logan McCracken of Oklahoma City tied for 38th at 1-under, Ian Davis of Edmond tied for 45th at even par, former OU golfer Luke Kwon tied for 49th at 1 over and Taylor Artman of Norman finished 73rd at 7 over.

Four other first stage events get under way Wednesday, including one at The Woodlands near Houston in which Oklahomans Matt Mabry of TU and Cameron Meyers of Edmond are competing. The five-event second stage events begin Nov. 1. and the qualifying school finals are Dec. 8-11 at Orange County National.
