J.T. Poston, the Southwestern Amateur champion in 2013, won his second career PGA Tour event, going wire-to-wire at the John Deere Classic and posting a 72-hole total of 21-under 263. A week after tying for second at the Travelers Championship, Poston continued his stellar play, becoming the first player on record to open consecutive Tour events with a 62 or better.
In addition to his victory, Poston earned a place in the upcoming British Open at St. Andrews.
“I’ve always wanted to play in one of those in any of the venues, but for my first one to be at St. Andrews, at the 150th, I can’t wait to get there,” he said. “I can’t wait to see what it’s like.”
