Hearn makes the grade while Morland stumbles
Brantford's David Hearn managed to narrowly make it through PGA Tour Q-School. Despite landing in second place heading into the sixth round, he fell apart, ending up one stroke inside the cut line after holing a lengthy putt (some said 40 feet, others said longer) for birdie on the final hole.
Aurora's David Morland IV didn't have any luck, or apparently any good swings, during his last round. Morland shot 78 to assure a spot on the Nationwide Tour, but that's not really much of a consolation to the diminutive Canuck, who played on the PGA Tour in 2004.
Does Hearn have what it takes? Well it was a remarkable run in 2004, starting in Asia, through the Canadian Tour to winning on the Nationwide Tour. I doubt he's the next Mike Weir, but he is likely better than Ian Leggat, Glen Hnatiuk and the like.
