Allred advances to second stage of PGA Q School

Jason Allred made it through the first stage of PGA Tour Qualifying School at Kinderlou Forest Golf Club in Valdosta, Ga., on Friday.

The former Ashland High player, who now lives in Scottsdale, Ariz., shot a 1-under-par 71 in the fourth and final round and was one of 24 players to advance to the second stage.

He tied for eighth place with a total score of 6-under 282.

Allred has split his time between the PGA Tour — he's qualified for it twice through Q School since 2005 — and the Nationwide Tour in recent years but didn't have status on either this past season.

Allred posted scores of 73, 70 and 68 in the first three rounds. On Friday, he had 15 pars to go with birdies on the eighth and 11th holes and a bogey at No. 17.

Bradley Keegan won the stage with a 269, and his 19-under score was eight shots better than anyone else.

Seventy players completed the tournament.

The second stage is Nov. 18-21 at six sites.

The Ashland boys soccer team and North Medford girls soccer squad each took first in the Dairy Farmers of Oregon Academic All-State Awards.
