Former Golf: Carrey slips past into Qualifying field

Daily Advertiser, Dec. 16, 2013

La QUINTA, Calif. Former UL golf standout Devin Carrey slipped back in the field here Sunday during the fourth of six rounds in the Web.com Tour Qualifying Tournament final stage, but still is in range of earning full exemption on the 2014 tour.

Carrey carded a one-over par 73 Sunday over the PGA West Nicklaus course, and now has a four-round total of five-under-par 283. That score has him tied for 65th, as the British Columbia native slipped from a tie for 31st after Saturday’s third round.

Carrey’s 68-71-71-73 score puts him 16 strokes back of four-round leader Scott Pinckney, who is at 21-under 267 entering Monday’s fifth round. More importantly, Carrey currently sits two strokes out of a tie for 45th place, which is the event’s most important position.

Players in “Q-School” are competing for positions on the 2014 Web.com Tour Priority Ranking, which forms tournament fields. Players finishing in the top 45 and ties are guaranteed spots in the Web.com Tour fields through the first reshuffle which follows the eighth tournament. Included in those first eight is the Chitimacha Louisiana Open, set for March at Le Triomphe Country Club in Broussard.

Carrey made it through the first and second stages of “Q-School” qualifying to reach the finals. More than 1,000 entries began play in the first stage.

Carrey, a two-time All-Louisiana pick during his UL career from 2007-09, bogeyed three of the four par-threes on the Nicklaus course in his Sunday round, but birdied the par-five seventh and 11th holes. Through four rounds he has 13 birdies and an eagle over the two courses being used for the final stage.

The fifth round is Monday and the final round is set for Tuesday.
