WINTER GARDEN, Fla. -- Aaron Barber faces a long climb to get in contention for one of 30 PGA Tour exemptions available at the Final Stage Qualifying Tournament. The 33-year-old New London native is tied with 13 others at four-over 148 after shooting a 74 on both Wednesday and Thursday at the Panther Lake Course at the Orange County National Golf Center.
