For the first time, there will be two former K-State Wildcats on the PGA Tour. Aaron Watkins earned his tour card for the second time by finishing in a tie for 17th in the final “Q” school, held over six rounds at two different courses in La Quinta, CA. Watkins was on the tour in 2009, where he recorded a seventh place finish at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, but lost his card. His play picked up this year, highlighted by a top 15 finish in the US Open.
Watkins joins former Wildcat Robert Streb on the PGA Tour, as Streb finished seventh on the 2012 Web.com Tour’s Money List with $305,591 to earn his 2013 PGA Tour card. The only other K-State grad to play on the PGA Tour is of course the legendary Jim Colbert, an eight-time winner on the tour.
