Securing a Spot in Portland!
Checking in from the final event of the Korn Ferry Tour regular season, the WinCo Foods Portland Open. This week is always special on the Korn Ferry Tour because 25 PGA Tour Cards are handed out during the “graduation” ceremony at the end of the week. I entered the week in 20th place on the points list, in a great position but with an outside chance of being passed by six players.
Back in the Bay Area
Hello from back in the Bay Area! We’ll start with the good stuff first, and I finished in solo-3rd place at the Ellie Mae Classic at TPC Stonebrae, which all-but-secured my PGA Tour card!! I shot 65-63-68-69 for a total of 15 under par, carding 22 birdies and 2 eagles in one off my most offensive weeks of the year.
Scorching Hot in Omaha
Unfortunately, this week was a short one. It was scorching hot in Omaha, with a heat index of 109 degrees when I walked off the golf course on Thursday evening at 8pm. I have no complaints about the golf course though, as the Club at Indian Creek was in perfect shape and the greens were some of the best we putted on all year.
Mile High Birdies
Hello! Checking in from the Mile High City at a new tournament on the Korn Ferry Tour, the TPC Colorado Championship. The story this week was the golf course, which measured over 7800 yards!
Over the weekend in Utah, I had a really poor round on Saturday where my frustration with the golf course and weird bounces got the best of me, but closed with a 68 to finish 57th. While it was three pretty good rounds, a 57th place finish was only worth 4 points and didn’t help me much.
