Putting Into the PGA Tour

by | Apr 10, 2017 | Alumni Network, Spring 2017

Every year, Jim Knous ’12 and several of his friends make the Waste Management Phoenix Open appointment viewing. This year, however, Knous decided to break par.

Knous played his way into the tournament, securing the third and final spot to compete at TPC Scottsdale on February 2–5. Knous had never played in a PGA Tour event, and he became the first Oredigger in Mines’ golf history to earn a professional card on a golf tour. He missed the cut to move on in the PGA Tour but has gone on to compete in the 2017 Web.com Tour in Central and South America.
