In the space of just three months, American youngster Luke Guthrie has gone from a college senior to a 2013 PGA Tour player.
With a near-flawless weekend at the Web.com Tour’s Albertsons Boise Open, the 22-year-old earned his PGA Tour card for next season following a commanding four-shot victory on a tournament record 22-under.
The win marks Guthrie’s first on the Web.com Tour and fifth top-ten in six starts. The victory also pushes him up to fourth on the money list.
“I’ve been in this situation a few times now,” he said.
“I’m happy to finally come through and win a tournament. It was an awesome day.”
Now that he’s accomplished his goal of winning and securing his playing privileges for next season, Guthrie can return to hitting the books. He needs 13 more credits to earn a degree in business management.
In his three PGA Tour starts this season, Guthrie has finished no worse than tied 19th, earning $284,672.
