AMES, Iowa-Former Iowa State golfer Chris Baker will move on to the third and final stage of qualifying for the Tour.

Baker tallied a 9-under 279 (69-73-69-69) to tie for eighth in the field of 76 at the Shell Landing Golf Club in Gautier, Miss., comfortably moving him onto the final stage of qualifying for the Tour.

The second stage featured six qualifiers in different regions of the United States. A total of 32 golfers from Baker’s qualifying spot advanced to the final stage. 

The Tour, formally known as the Nationwide Tour, is the developmental circuit for the PGA Tour. This is the first season of the Q-school, replacing the former PGA Tour Q-School. Future PGA Tour players now must earn their PGA Tour playing privileges through their performance on the Tour.

While at Iowa State, Baker recorded 13 top-10 finishes, which ranks fifth all-time in school history. In his senior season (2007-08), Baker garnered eight top-10 showings, tying the school record.

The 2008 Iowa State Male Athlete was a First-Team All-Big 12 pick in 2008, earning a spot as an individual at the NCAA Central Region.

Fellow Cyclone alum Nate McCoy, the 2012 Iowa State Male Athlete of the Year, also made it to the second stage of the Q-School, but failed to qualify for the final stage by tying for 67th in the same qualifier as Baker.

The final stage of qualifying will feature six rounds of golf played at PGA West, Dec. 12th-17th.
