This is the story of 12 months in the lives of seven professional golfers who share one dream - to play full time on the PGA European Tour, one of the richest gravy trains in the sport. But to get there, all seven face the most grueling annual test of golf, the most tortuous tournament ever invented - the Qualifying School. The "Q School" is the end of season exam that almost 900 players enter, but only about 30 will pass. All seven players here are living their dream, but at a price: it could be their marriage, their relationship with their parents, their financial safety, the risk of long term injury to their bodies, and sometime, even their sanity. We are pleased to make this UK story available in the U.S.
