Newburgh, IN---It continues to be a whirlwind of golf for Mosley and Florida State alum Chase Seiffert.
Within weeks of competing with FSU in the NCAA championship which wound up his collegiate career, Chase has played in the PGA Tour's St Jude's Classic on a sponsor's exemption, then through Monday qualifying, played in the Web.com Tour's Rex Hospital Open in Raleigh last week.
Not only did he make the cut, he shot ten under, good for a tie for 13th and his first professional check of more than 11 grand! Tuesday I asked him what's it's like to get that first "payday"!
"It has really sunk in yet, since the check was sent to the house. But it's a good feeling. It will help when I sign up for Q-School and sign up for tournaments, it's nice. And now I just have to keep it going. It's nice to get that first cut out of the way and be able to play on the weekend. I knew top 25 was going to get me into this week's event and that was my goal going into the week. And I was able to pull through with a good round on Sunday."
As Chase says, he's in this week's Web.com Tour stop, the United Leasing Championship in Newburgh Indiana just outside Evansville. That meant a 681 mile, 11 hour drive yesterday, by himself no less. Perhaps boring and tiring, but Chase certainly isn't about to start complaining about that!
"Yeah, I mean it's just a car ride. I've done it my whole life traveling to tournaments and stuff. You've just gotta get into a mode of this is what I've signed up for. And I love to be on the road, I love to travel, it's fun to see different places and play different courses."
And we'll keep you updated on Chase's progress in that tourney which begins Thursday at Victoria National Golf Club in Newburgh. 99 grand goes to the winner.
