School's out for Huh

HOW splendid that, as US Tour members mull over proposals to make radical changes to their qualifying system, Johnny Huh, a 21-year-old rookie fresh out of Q-School, should win Sunday's Maykoba Classic.

Born in New York of Korean parents, Huh forced his way into sudden death in Mexico with a superb final-round 63 and made par at all eight tie holes to beat Robert Allenby, who had double-bogeyed his 72nd hole in regulation.

Sunday's winner would have been unable to get a PGA credential this year under the proposed scheme, which would make only Nationwide Tour cards available to Q-School graduates. Huh, indeed!
