Quick PGA Tour & LPGA Tour Q-School's Primer

Both PGA Tour and LPGA Tour Q-School's are this week, the final time for the PGA Tour in which top qualifiers earn the right to play a few west coast events before the re-shuffle. Now they'll get in through the playoffs, before they face a reshuffle in the fall! has set up a convenient one-stop shop here. figures to have it covered well too. Here are the opening round groupings.

Meanwhile the LPGA kicks off Wednesday and many will be rooting on Melissa Reid, who has endured a brutal year off the course.

Your one stop shop at can be found here.

Fan favorite Christina Kim is also back at Q-school but most peculiar of all is the appearance of Japan's Chie Arimura, ranked 19th in the world. In case you're wondering, Dustin Johnson is ranked 19th on the men's side. I'm guessing he won't be at a qualifying school anytime soon!

Golf Channel will not be covering the golf live, instead doing this:

GOLF CENTRAL Q-SCHOOL SPECIALS WEDNESDAY-MONDAY – All of the action at the PGA TOUR Q-School Finals will be covered in nightly Golf Central Specials Wednesday-Monday (Nov. 28-Dec. 2) at 8 p.m. ET, with extended highlights, live interviews from PGA West and special features. Wednesday’s two-hour Golf Central (8-10 p.m. ET) – hosted by Whit Watson and Jimmy Roberts – will feature a roundtable panel discussion with several Q-School alums, including Jerry Foltz, Dicky Pride and Tripp Isenhour. Monday’s live show will be a two-hour recap capturing all of the action from the final day of Q-School and featuring live interviews with players who secured their PGA TOUR cards for 2013. The network’s team of correspondents will report live and on-site from PGA West, including Curt Byrum, Matt Gogel, Billy Ray Brown and Phil Blackmar. The special also will incorporate the PGA TOUR card ceremony, when the PGA TOUR’s newest members will receive their PGA TOUR cards.

· The future of Q-School – Golf Channel will examine the new process of earning a PGA TOUR Card during Golf Central’s Q-School coverage.

Huh? No tv coverage at all? Not sure about the rest, but I find it very intriguing to watch 'no namers' have to deal with so much stress when they could be one putt away from a card..

Any explanation for this, theyve covered it basically every other year.

@M I bet they're not covering it like in the past because the Tour doesn't want it covered. Too bad too, because I agree with you. It's pretty compelling stuff.

I don't know why, but I know that I will really miss every shot-''highlight''shows just don't have the drama for the viewer (you and me). This is a sad week; first to know that this is the end, and tthen to add insult-TGC is not covering it!?!?!? And they let us know with the same ''Friday afternoon dump'' that all ''secret'' news gets.
