Former VCU golf star Ted Brown's comeback is in full swing.
On Tuesday, the 2003 VCU graduate qualified for full status on the Web.com Tour after he placed 35th in the final stage of Q-School at PGA National Resort & Spa at Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. Brown completed the six-round gauntlet 8-under par (72-70-68-67-71-73=421). During Tuesday's final round, he overcame a double bogey on No. 4 to fire a 1-over 73.
The top 45 finishers from Tuesday will begin the 2015 season with full tour status. The Web.com Tour, formerly known as the Nationwide Tour, serves as a developmental tour for the PGA.
Tuesday's showing represents a significant achievement in the professional career of Brown, the 2002 Colonial Athletic Association individual champion and member of three CAA championship teams.
Brown played professionally on a number of tours following the conclusion of his VCU career. In 2010, Brown, playing with conditional status, appeared in 24 Web.com Tour tournaments and made 10 cuts. But the Peterborough, Canada native's pro career largely stalled until earlier this year. Brown did not appear on a PGA-affiliated tour in 2012 of 2013.
In 2014, Brown resurrected his career with a strong summer on the Canadian Tour that included four top-10 finishes in 10 events.
