Congratulations to Morgan Pankow for winning her first golfweek championship at the golf club of Dublin on October 21,22. It was a come from behind victory with a fine 72 final round.
Xavier men’s golf alum Jason Kokrak (’07) had a strong weekend at the 2017 PGA Championship at Quail Hollow Club, winning the event’s long drive competition before finishing the tournament tied for 33rd at 3-over par.
Kokrak, one of the biggest hitters on the tour, carried a drive 321 yards to claim the title at the event, receiving a gold money clip and a $25,000 donation to the charity of his choice for the win.
Xavier alum Andy Pope will make his 75th career Web.com Tour start this week at Fox Den CC.
In the Web.com Tour’s final Monday qualifier of the season, Wolcott rose to the occasion with an impressive 11-birdie, one-bogey performance. The recent Ole Miss graduate will make his first career Web.com Tour start, and he hopes to announce himself in a big way on a course that traditionally requires bushels of birdies in order to contend.
Also advancing from the Three Ridges site were Andy Pope (64), Joey Garber (64), James Devault (65), Mike Van Sickle (65) and Nathan Stamey (66), who advanced via a 6-for-1 playoff.
