Nov. 30: Nagy shot 2-under par 70 in the first of six rounds of the Final Stage and is tied for 61st.
Former Charlotte 49ers all-America golfer Corey Nagy is among 173 hopefuls who will open play in the final stage of PGA Tour Q School, Wednesday. The final stage will be played Nov. 30- Dec. 5 at PGA West (Nicklaus Tournament & TPC Stadium Courses) in La Quinta, Ca.
Nagy finished tied for 18th in his second stage to advance to the final stage. He was the 2011 eGolf Tour Player of the Year after winning the eGolf money title with a first-place finish in the final event. He won three events in 12 starts.
Nagy, the most decorated golfer in school history, is looking to become the third 49ers golfer to graduate PGA Q School. Terry Mauney was the Q School medalist in the spring of 1979 and Chris Tucker graduated Q school in 1991 to precede his PGA rookie season in 1992.
Former Nagy teammates Trevor Murphy and Olafur Loftsson have both competed in PGA events. Murphy qualified and competed as an amateur in the 2008 Wachovia Championship in Charlotte, N.C. while Loftsson qualified and competed as an amateur at this summer's Wyndham Championship in Greensboro, N.C. Murphy has gone on to compete in additional PGA events since turning pro, including the 2009 US Open.
The lowest 25 finishers and any tying for 25thposition after the conclusion of play in the Final Qualifying Stage will be eligible for 2012 PGA TOUR membership.
Nagy was a four-time all-America for the Charlotte 49ers who helped the program to back-to-back top 10 NCAA finishes in 2007 and 2008. He was part of the 49ers third-place team in 2007 and the eighth-place team in 2008. The 49ers were ranked as the consensus number one team in the country in the fall of 2007. A two-time Atlantic 10 medalist, Nagy helped the 49ers win A-10 titles in each of his four seasons -- earning NCAA Tournament trips each time.
Nagy was named second team all-America in 2010 and earned honorable mention all-America honors in 2007, 2008 and 2009. He competed on the victorious US Palmer Cup squad in the summer of 2010.
A 2010 ESPN the Magazine Academic all-America, Nagy was twice named the A-10 Golf Student-Athlete of the Year and was named the 2010 Atlantic 10 Male Scholar-Athlete of the Year.
He is the only student-athlete in school history to earn all-America honors in each of his four years.
