Schnell, Stanley Pro Careers on the Move

3 06 2009

Brady Schnell took another step up the pro golf career ladder Friday (May 29) when he completed a wire-to-wire victory at the Canadian Tour’s Spring Qualifying School at the Morningstar Golf Club in Parksville, British Columbia.

Schnell shot rounds of 67-70-70-70 for an 11-under par total 277, edging fellow American Matt Marshall by a stroke.

A graduate of the University of Nebraska, Schnell will play in this year’s John Deere Classic on his third straight sponsor exemption. A resident of Iowa and son of former Crow Valley Country Club head professional Curt Schnell, Brady will be eligible to play in all Canadian Tour events. Depending on his performance, he can make it easier to move on to the Nationwide Tour or regular PGA Tour.

Meanwhile, Kyle Stanley, another 2009 John Deere Classic sponsor exemption, finished second in the NCAA championships at Inverness Club in Toledo. Playing in his final event as an amateur, the junior out of Clemson shot 4-under par 209 on rounds of 72-71-66 at a classic golf course that has hosted four U.S. Opens and two PGA Championships.

Stanley recently won the prestigious Ben Hogan Award as the nation’s best college golfer.
