In his first season on the Web.com Tour, Augusta resident Wesley Bryan has already won two tournaments in six starts, which earns him PGA Tour status for the 2016-17 season.
“I mean, it’s crazy” Bryan told me Monday afternoon. “If you had told me that I would’ve already won twice and locked up my PGA Tour card at this time of the year, I probably wouldn’t have believed you. Obviously, I feel really fortunate — been playing some good golf.”
Bryan was already well-known in the golf world for Bryan Bros Golf, his collection of trick shot golf videos with his older brother George. Now, the 26-year-old is making a name for himself as a rising professional golfer.
“I guess it just gives me a little more credibility,” he said. “I mean, it’s satisfying knowing that most the golf world didn’t know me as a golfer before the trick shot stuff, so I guess it feels pretty satisfying knowing that I can compete on this level and go play the next.”
If Bryan wins a third Web.com Tour event this season, he can immediately start playing on the PGA Tour instead of having to wait until the start of next season.
