We all should cheer for Aubrey

At 42, Emlyn Aubrey is attempting to revive his professional golf career. Hampered by severe back problems the past few years, Aubrey has traveled the country this year trying to qualify for PGA Tour and Nationwide Tour events on Monday.
Saturday, he completed a succesful week at the second stage of PGA Tour school. There is one six-round event left ... the vaunted Final Stage of Q-School.
You will not find a better guy than Aubrey, a former teammate of David Toms at LSU.
This summer he was forced to make ends meet and was hawking soft drinks from the beverage cart during a ladies golf tournament at StoneBridge. Assuredly not an easy thing after playing on the PGA Tour for 11 years and the Nationwide Tour for several others.
Q-School starts Nov. 29 in California and all eyes around town should be watching Aubrey's efforts. He's already guaranteed conditional status on the Nationwide Tour but has a chance to become fully emempt on the PGA Tour and/or Nationwide.
Good luck Emlyn.
