Riley Gets His Card Back

Chris Riley is Back on the PGA Tour

They call it Q-School.  Every December, golfers with dreams of playing on the PGA Tour meet in the PGA Qualifying Tournament, six straight days of pressure-packed golf.  This year players had to finish 19-under to earn a Tour Card for 2009.

Madison High School alum Chris Riley made it on the number.  Riley found himself in a greenside bunker on 18, but made a tremendous shot from the sand to within four feet.  He made the par putt, earning a spot on Tour for next season.

Riley was a member of the U.S. Ryder Cup team in 2004, but has not won a PGA event since 2002.  He could not have picked a better day to get back on golf's biggest biggest stage.  Monday is his 35th birthday.  Happy Birthday, Chris.  See you at Torrey Pines for the Buick Invitational.
