MLB All-Star among PGA Tour hopefuls

Comparing the difficulty of different sports is one of the most popular and futile debates that sports fans engage in. So how does facing Randy Johnson, one of the most intimidating pitchers in history, compare to the mental grind of Q-School?

Former MLB All-Star Phil Nevin can answer that question with authority. Nevin will make his second attempt at Q-School in a pre-qualifier this week at Black Horse Golf Club in Seaside, Calif.

I dont think I was ever more nervous, in any at-bat I ever had, than when I stepped up to the first tee that first day, Nevin said.

He shot 27-over 315 (83-73-83-76) in last years pre-qualifier at Morgan Creek Golf & Country Club in Roseville, Calif. A score of 10-over 298 was necessary to advance to Q-Schools first stage.

He will tee off at 8 a.m. Tuesday in the first group off Black Horses 10th tee.

Im not delusional, thinking I might be able to get my Tour card, he said. I had a blast doing it last year. If I can get to the next stage itd be a pretty cool thing.
