The kind of scores one needs to post in order to make it through the qualifying tournaments of the PGA/Nationwide Tour are usually par or better for the the final stage alone of qualifying tournament. There are 3 stages to get through in order to qualify for either one of the tours though (usually beginning within 2 months of the final stage). You have to qualify in the first to get to the second, and the second to get to the final. They usually take the top some odd amount of players in each. The final stage determines whether you'll be in the PGA, Nationwide, or if you have to continue with mini tours. The top 30 go to the PGA. The next 50 are usually exempt for the next year on the Nationwide. These cuts are at the discretion of the PGA though and may change from year to year. The final stage for 2004 consisted of about 156 players...to give an idea of the field. There are more (even better) details on getting into the qualifying tournament for the PGA/Nationwide tour, so you may want to check out http://www.pgatour.com/story/7384196 where you should be able to download an application (PDF) to look over from 2004 (it gives plenty of info on the qualifying). Best of luck!

No limit, as long as you qualify. Qualifying is just like a tournament the first, second, and I think third placers represent the USA in the Olympics.

Countries that are members of FIFA must compete in qualifying matches prior to the start of the actual FIFA World Cup. These qualifying matches determines the teams' participation in the tournament, and its FIFA ranking. Teams only compete against other teams that are from the same federation (i.e. the United States' team only competes with teams from the CONCACAF (Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football)). FIFA allocates a certain number of teams from each federation to qualify. For example, in the 2010 FIFA World Cup, FIFA allowed only 4 teams from the AFC (Asian Football Confederation) to qualify for the tournament, meaning no more than 4 Asian countries were allowed to participate in the tournament. Recently, FIFA regulations determined that 32 countries would be allowed to qualify for the tournament.

The US Open can best be described by its name, Open. It is open to everyone to play in provided you have at least a handicap of 1.4 or better. As Roy "Tin Cup" McAvoy called it "...the most democratic golf tournament in the world". Once you meet that requirement you can enter qualifying tournaments to gain entry into the US Open tournament. Professionals who do not qualify automatically (See below) and amateurs may begin the qualifying process by playing in an 18-hole local qualifying tournament. The top scores from the local tournaments earn entrance to a 36-hole sectional qualifying tournament. The top scores from there gain entrance to the US Open. There are also qualifying tournaments in Europe and Japan. Players can also earn Automatic entries as long as they meet the following requirements: - They won the U.S. Open in the previous 10 years - They won the Masters, British Open or PGA Championship tournament in the previous 5 years - They finished in the top 30 on PGA money list in the previous year - They finished in the top 15 on the European Tour in the previous year - Or, if they are ranked in the top 50 of the official world golf rankings two weeks prior to the tournament.

No. It is a verb. The participles (qualifying, qualified) can be adjectives or noun adjuncts (gerunds).

The difference between qualifying for loans and grants is that loans you borrow money from a bank and in order to qualify you need to pay in the time they give you to repay, a grant is like a scholarship and in order to qualify you need a good GPA or write an essay.
