He finished inside 150th on the PGA Tour Money List so he is exempt to Q-School Finals

Seems like he could have at least finished it out.  I'm sure his sponsors and fans would have liked to see him out there in person...

integrity and all
run of the mill driver with stock shaft
a couple of outdated hybrids
shovel-ier shovels
wedges from same shovel company
some putter with a dead insert and
a hideous grip

Sponsors?  why do they care about 2nd stage of Q School?  It's not on TV and he can take some time to practice.

Ahh so then Taylor Made wouldn't mind at all if he took of his branded clothes, wore a plain hat and used a nondescript bag?

Actually ...with the way he's been playing ever since the switch from Cobra I'm sure they wouldn't mind at all, now that I think about it.

He didn't start.  so there was nothing to finish. Happens fairly often, guys sign up and then improve there position. i am sure Beljian was signed up also, and I am certain he withdrew.

I hope hime and Anthony Kim get their games together this week. If they both got their heads on straight and avoided injuries they could be very good for golf.

watching the coverage on sunday they talked about different guys that were signed up and that would not be heading to Q School if they didn't have to.  it does happen all the time and it's not a big deal........even for the sponsors

I'm sure his sponsers would rather him play the final stage than get beat out in the second stage.  it has nothing to do with integrity it has to do with the fact that he doesnt need to play it.

Just seems like yesterday that he won back to back
in the Fedex playoffs. What happened to him, anyway?

According to some theories on here he should have also played pre-qualifying stage and first stage.

I wonder where this reasonable though was in the other players' thread where a guy basically has a card locked up on another overseas tour, and WD'd for logical, sound reasons, yet got blasted as if he sold dope to a nun.

Just sayin...

Now, you're correct in that most of this is NOT serious, but I was just trying to bring some things to light, mainly how dumb people look when they don't look at many of the factors involved...

Daly withdrew in the middle of a tournament, he was already there. Probably on an appearance fee since he already had his card locked up. Technically he withdrew in the middle of a round.

People WD from all stages because of the reason mentioned above: they sign up well in advance, then they get exempt to a certain stage, an this AUTOMATICALLY WDs them from earlier stages.

People sign up for pre-qual but then make a cut on Web.com or something and are exempt...or they are registered for Stage 1 but then play well in an event or two, work up the web.com money list and are exempt to Stage 2...or a tour player signs up but then gets in top 150 of $ rank and gets exempt to Stage 3.  There are other ways of getting exempt, I'm just giving an example for each sage...
