Dicky Pride: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There's a reason professional golfers want to avoid Q-School at all costs - it's really tough. Just ask Dicky Pride, who failed in his four most recent attempts. Pride didn't throw in the towel on his career, though, he just went about things a different way, earning his card on the job. With a top-64 elsewhere in the world, Pride gained access to the Mayakoba Classic in February. He finished T5 there, which gave him the chance to play the following week at the Honda Classic where he again finished in the top 10. The following week he earned a top-20. It was a great run for Pride, but it wouldn't have meant much without his runner-up finish at the Byron Nelson. At that point, Pride was fully exempt for the season and likely for the 2013 season. He didn't do much after that, but at least he has his card.
