Allred continues Q School climb

LA QUINTA, Calif. — Ashland native Jason Allred climbed a little closer to earning PGA status on Sunday, firing a 2-under-par 70 in the fifth of six rounds at the PGA Tour Qualifying Tournament on the PGA West Nicklaus Tournament course.

His round moved him from a tie for 50th into an 11-way tie for 42nd at the event where the top 25 players and ties earn their PGA cards for the following season or gain full status on the Nationwide Tour.

Allred birdied hole Nos. 2 and 8 before suffering his only bogey of the day on No. 10. Two holes later, Allred notched another birdie before parring on the final six holes to bring his five-day total score to 356.

The final round is today. Allred, who is amoung a field of 162 players, will try to close in on leader Marco Dawson, who scored a 4-under 68 on the day at the TPC Stadium Course and has a total score of 17-under 343.

The 48-year-old Dawson owns a three-stroke lead. He made three PGA Tour starts this year and also played in 21 Nationwide Tour events.

Nationwide Tour player Stephen Gangluff was second after a 67 on the Stadium course.

Former Georgia star Harris English, a Nationwide Tour winner this year while still in school, was 13 under along with Brendon Todd. English shot a 70, and Todd had a 68. They played the Stadium course.

David Duval was tied for 63rd after a 68 on the Nicklaus Tournament Course.
