Jason Allred, who had a strong showing on the Web.com Tour last week, will get another chance to move up the ladder this week thanks to brilliant play in the Monday qualifier.
Allred, from Ashland, shot a blistering 64 at Ridgecrest Golf Club to tie for the low round in qualifying for the Albertsons Boise Open.
Allred, who lives in Scottsdale, Ariz., shared the low round with Riley Arp and Tain Lee. Twelve spots into the tournament were awarded.
The Boise Open starts Thursday at Hillcrest Country Club. Allred tees off at 9:05 a.m. in Round 1 and 2:05 p.m. on Friday.
The tournament will air on The Golf Channel for two hours beginning at 3:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday. Sunday’s showing is from 4 to 6 p.m.
Last week, Allred was 10 under par and tied for 28th place in the Midwest Classic in Overland Park, Kan.
The Boise Open is on the 6,807-yard Hillcrest CC course. It’s the third-shortest course on the tour and the smallest among U.S. venues. It ranked as last year’s third-easiest layout, with a scoring average of 69.22 that was 1.78 strokes below par.
Just five events are left in the Web.com’s regular season before the first 25 PGA Tour cards for next year are handed out and the top 75 in earnings move on to the new Finals series that begins Aug. 29 in Indiana.
