The road to Pinehurst starts today all across the country. The local qualifying stage is the first step for most professionals and aspiring amateurs. There are 111 one round local sites across the United States and successful qualifiers will advance to twelve 36 hole sectional qualifiers. Outside of the the two international sectional qualifiers, the largest sites are always Memphis and Ohio since those are the two PGA Tour stops before and after the Monday qualifier. With so many PGA Tour Players and up and coming players, the sectional qualifier are a great place to watch a bit closer than your average tour stop.
