Bobby Wyatt Shoots 64 to Finish 4th at Zurich Classic
Former Alabama golfer Bobby Wyatt fired a 64 in the final round of a rain-shortened Zurich Classic to finish alone in fourth place. His day began with a 30 on the front nine, but consecutive bogies on holes 14 and 15 kept him one stroke out of a playoff with three other players.
The Mobile native received a sponsor's exemption into this weekend's PGA Tour stop in New Orleans. It's just his ninth start on tour and the finish earned him $336,000.
Since graduating from Alabama in 2014 after consecutive national championships, Wyatt has bounced around from the Web.com tour Q-School to Monday qualifiers to international events as he works to find a consistent professional schedule. He will play in the upcoming Canadian Tour, and Monday's result could be a sign of a big summer to come.
Wyatt arrived to The University of Alabama after making national headlines for a round of 57 at a state amateur event. Wyatt would go on to earn All-American honors under head coach Jay Seawell and competed at the 2013 Walker Cup as a member of the United States team.
