In an interview with AP Golf writer Doug Ferguson, Las Vegas resident Chris Riley, a former Ryder Cup player and winner on the PGA Tour, admits that he hit rock bottom last year at Q School after shooting an opening round of 83.
"I hit rock bottom," Riley told Ferguson on the range at the Buick Invitational, played in Riley's true hometown of San Diego. "I walked back out onto the range and they were like, 'Jeez, this guy played on the Ryder Cup and now he's shooting 83 at Q-school.' It shows you what the game is all about."
Riley was a four-time All-American at UNLV, and won the Reno-Tahoe Open in 2002..
