Q-School Self-DQer Qualifies For Northern Trust Open

Sean Martin reports that Blayne Barber has Monday-qualified for the Northern Trust Open after a 65 at Industry Hills.

You may recall Barber was the player who disqualified himself six days after his Q-School first round, opening the door for six more players to advance.

Besides that disqualification, his pro career had gotten off to a strong start. He made the cut in both his Web.com Tour starts last year, finishing T-33 at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Invitational and T-15 at the Winn-Dixie Jacksonville Open. He also won five times on the NGA Tour in a six-event stretch late last year.

Barber’s wife, Morgan, was on the bag for both the Monday qualifier and the previous Thursday’s pre-qualifier. He was co-medalist at the pre-qualifying after firing 66 at Morongo Golf Club.
