Fischer earns full status on Tour

Zack Fischer closed with an 8-under 64 on Tuesday in Q-school to

earn top status on the Tour next year.

This was the first year that Q-school only offered status on the

PGA Tour’s secondary circuit. Fischer finished at 31-under 401 in

the six-round tournament at PGA West. As the medalist, he is

assured entry into every Tour event.

Scott Pinckney shot a 68 to finish second. Pinckney and the

other players in the top 10 will have full status through 12

tournaments. After that, the priority ranking will be reshuffled

depending on the money list. That group includes Max Homa.

Players who finished between 11th and 45th do not face the

reshuffle until after the eighth event. Sam Saunders, the grandson

of Arnold Palmer, tied for 11th.
