Aaron Wise, a former Oregon Ducks standout, shot a 2-under 68 to close out the win at the Air Capital Classic, a Web.Com Tour event in Wichita, Kansas on Sunday.With the win, Wise earned $112,500, picked up a cool propeller trophy — and earned his PGA Tour card for the 2017-2018 season.
Wise, who turns 21 on Wednesday, finished the week 21-under-par 259.
Oregon fans may remember that Wise won the individual title at the 2016 NCAA Championship and led the Ducks men’s golf team to their first team championship.
Since then, the Cape Town, South Africa native’s path to the PGA Tour has been gaining momentum. He won his first tournament as a professional last July and has progressed from the Mackenzie Tour (known as the PGA Tour Canada) to the Web.Com Tour.
Wise is scheduled to play in the WinCo Foods Portland Open on August 24-27 at Witch Hollow Golf Course at Pumpkin Ridge.
