JUPITER, Fla. - Chase Koepka from West Palm Beach, FL, won Q-School Contest #2 back in March of this year with a 72 hole total of 274 (69-68-66-71). With that win he earned a full paid entry into Q-School this fall.

Chase's decision to forfeit free Q-School entry

Chase decided to skip Q-School this year to focus his attention on the remainder of the Challenge Tour schedule. When he made that decision, he sat in 8th place on the order of merit. At years end the top 15 recieve European Tour status. Well his decision paid off big time when he finished 2nd this past weekend in the Kazakhstan Open in Almaty, Kazakhstan. His 2nd place finish moved him to 4th on the order of merit with 6 events to go. He now has a full European Tour card locked up for 2018.
