Former Cal Poly golfer Travis Bertoni remains in the hunt for a PGA Tour card.
The Paso Robles native has advanced to the PGA Tour Finals Qualifying School and has assured himself at least a spot in Nationwide Tour events next season.
Bertoni shot a final-round 70 at the TPC Craig Ranch course in McKinney, Texas, on Monday.
He finished in a five-way tie for 19th place and is among 22 players from the Craig Ranch event. The former Mustang was one of 132 players nationwide who advanced through the second stage of the PGA TOUR q-school over the weekend at one of six qualifying sites.
The final stage of the PGA Tour's qualifying school will be held December 2-7 in West Palm Beach, Florida. The lowest 25 scores over the 108 holes will earn their PGA TOUR cards for 2010. The rest of the field will have some degree of status on the Nationwide Tour.
Bertoni has competed on the Hooters Tour the last three years. With seven top-10 finishes this year, he finished fifth on the money winnings list with $76,848.
He has played in one PGA TOUR event in his career, the 2008 US Open at Torrey Pines in San Diego.
He competed at Cal Poly from 2003-06, winning 11 tournaments, earning Big West Conference Golfer of the Year honors three times.
