COLUMBUS, Ohio — Any golfer’s dream is to make the PGA Tour and recent graduate Daniel Wetterich took the first step this week as he not only advanced out of a Korn Ferry Tour pre-qualifier but he won the event.
Wetterich carded rounds of 70-67-70 at the Wilderness Ridge Golf Club in Lincoln, Neb. That was good enough for a two-shot victory and was 13 shots clear of the qualifying number.
The Cincinnati native has played well this summer. He finished fourth at the Dogwood Amateur in June and then was runner-up at the Western Amateur earlier this month.
He now advances the first stage of Korn Ferry Tour Qualifying which will be played at 12 different sites from Sept. 27 – October 7.
