That was the Korn Ferry Tour Twitter account with Viktor Hovland himself announcing those three words he’s been waiting to hear for a while now – He’s Tour Bound.
Hovland had just five bogeys during the Boise Open and couldn’t quite hang on to a 54-hole lead, but finished a stroke back in a tie for second. He needed just a top-25 finish so he is headed alongside Matthew Wolff and Kristoffer Ventura to the PGA Tour next season.
Kevin Daugherty finished tied for 11th in the tournament and moved into 21st place in the finals rankings. He will need another great week in the final tournament to earn his card.
Cowgirl soccer opened its season with a win last Thursday and was looking for the opening weekend sweep yesterday against UTSA. Jaci Jones kept her hot streak going to start out the season with a goal in the first half, but UTSA tied it up a few minutes before halftime.
From there, the storms rolled in and the two teams couldn’t get the second half in and canceled the match. So the Cowgirls will return home with a 1-0 record before heading to Norman for the non-con Bedlam match on Thursday night.
Finally, hope you were tuned in to the NFL preseason game last night between the Steelers and the Titans. For the second time this preseason Mason Rudolph found James Washington for a score.
Last night’s was reminiscent of many plays made in Boone Pickens Stadium with Rudolph unloading a 41-yard strike that Washington adjusted to and caught in the end zone. Last night both worked with the second team offense with the preseason debut of Ben Roethlisberger.
Mason Rudolph and James Washington have that connection down!
