Sims advances to second stage of PGA Q School
Michael Sims overcame the first hurdle on his quest to secure a PGA Tour card for next season in Texas.
The Bermudian pro was among the top 32 finishers and ties at last week's First Stage of PGA Q School - held at the 7,147-yard, par 72 Lantana Golf Club- that advanced to the next stage of qualifiers.
Sims, 34, finished in a four-way tie for 22nd with a four-round total of five-under-par 283.
His game peaked in the penultimate round when he fired a sizzling six-under-par 66 that kept him well on course to secure passage through to the Second Stage of PGA Q School.
Sims' bogey free round contained four birdies and an eagle at the par five third hole.
He finished 123rd on this year's Web.com Tour money list with $30,201 in earnings.
Sims played in 17 events and made four cuts.
The Georgia-based golfer earned exemption to play on this year's Web.com Tour after reaching the final stage of PGA Q School in LaQuinta California last November where he placed 95th.
