Last week, Cleveland Golf had winners on both the Web.Com Tour and NGA Tour, respectively. On the Web.Com, Michael Putnam battled some unpredictable weather on Sunday to shoot a final round 6-under 66 and capture the Mexico Championship at El Bosque Country Club. Putnam, Age 29, started his week with a phenomenal round of 64 which included two eagles in his first eight holes.
This was his second career win on the Web.Com Tour and his 5th Top-10 of the 2013 season. His performance also moved Michael from 11th to 1st on the 2013 Web.Com Money List, putting him in a great position to earn his PGA Tour card for 2014.
On the NGA Tour, Ken Looper used a back-nine 31 on Sunday to secure a five stroke victory over fellow Cleveland Golf staffer Zach Sucher in the Three Ridges Classic at Three Ridges Golf Club in Knoxville, Tenn. Earlier this year, Looper, Age 24, finished 21st in his first PGA Tour start at the Zurich Classic in New Orleans.
After his win on Sunday, he stated that “It feels nice to win again. It’s been over a year now since my last win. I told my dad and my coach about two months ago that my game is the best it has ever been and now it’s finally starting to show.”
Both Michael and Ken have bright futures in the sport. We are excited to see them progress and work towards becoming members of the PGA Tour.
