Cody Blick secured playing rights for next season with random clubs after his set was stolen


Pro Shoots 63 To Earn Tour Starts Despite Stolen Clubs

Cody Blick was heading into the final round of Tour Q School with a decent chance of qualifying.

That was until his golf clubs were stolen.

The American was at -10 with a round to go, four strokes off of the top 40 which crucially secures starts in the first eight events of the season.

However, he woke up Sunday without any clubs so took to Instagram offering $5,000 cash to be reunited.

He wrote: “To whoever has or has seen my golf clubs – I will give you $5,000 cash no questions asked.”

What followed was quite incredible.

Blick wasn’t reunited with his clubs, so instead went out onto the course with a mixed set including wedges from the pro shop, a driver from the course superintendent, a heavier-than-usual putter and ‘random’ irons he didn’t even hit before playing.

He would go onto shoot a bogey-free nine under par 63 at Whirlwind Golf Club in Arizona, including birdies on the last three holes, to finish T25th and earn status on the Tour.

PGA Tour reporter Adam Stanley tweeted, “Wade Binfield, who played with Blick on Sunday, called Blick’s round an “incredible display.””

Blick has played on the Mackenzie Tour – Canada for the last few years, finishing 12th and 11th on the Order of Merit over the last two seasons, winning around $90,000.

He won just shy of $50,000 this season on the Mackenzie Tour to finish 12th, whilst 12th on the Tour won just shy of $200,000 – his superb 63 has potentially unlocked a brighter future for him.

He is yet to win an Official World Golf Ranking tournament as a professional but has recorded four top-three finishes in the last two years.
