Maybe the local sports story of the year continues to get better. 

Manotick golfer Brad Fritsch, who has already qualified for next year’s PGA tour, is close to winning the PGA qualifying tournament. 

Q school attracts the best golfers in the world who are not yet on the PGA tour.  The top 25 make it.  To improve his status on the PGA tour, Fritsch decided to play the qualifying tournament, and maybe earn an invitation to play in more PGA tournaments next year. 

Q school is a six day grind.  Fritsch has been marvelous.  He shot a 68 today and finishes the tournament 22 shots under par good for a tie for seventh.
