December 13, 2013, La Quinta, CA (ISN) – PGA TOUR Canada member Chris Epperson shot a blistering 9-under par 63 Friday to take a commanding lead at Web.com Tour Qualifying School. The 31-year old lead by four strokes over fellow PGA TOUR Canada members Nathan Tyler and Steve Saunders.

Epperson, who led PGA TOUR Canada with six top-10s in 2013 and had the lowest scoring average at 69.32, made nine birdies and zero bogeys to sit 16-under par overall. The South Carolina native finished eighth on the Order of Merit, earning an exemption directly to the final stage of Q-School.
