Panama City Beach, FL---It's not a common occurrence, going right from your final collegiate tournament, and in to a PGA Tour event.
That is how things broke for Mosley and now Florida State alum Chase Seiffert.
Chase spent last week in Memphis playing in the PGA Tour's St. Jude Classic. He got that playing spot when his agent, through a contact within the tournament, asked for a sponsor's exemption, which was granted to Chase.
Seiffert just missed the cut, shooting back to back 71's, which was two over par. The cut was one over.
I caught up Chase Monday afternoon during his workout at the Hombre and we talked about landing the slot and his PGA Tour experience!
"Well actually asked for the sponsor's invite about a month ago and got the call the day after NCAA's that I was in. And it was just an awesome week. It's a great place to start my professional career. And got to go out there and learn a lot. And watch those guys practice and play and know where I need to improve my game."
As for the most valuable lesson from the weekend, well Chase says that's an easy one!
"Just every shot counts. I mean I missed the cut by one shot and that's kind of heartbreaking. But just the value of one shot over a two or four round tournament is more than anything."
Seiffert says he'll now concentrate on trying to make some cuts on the Buy-dot-com tour and playing on the Hooter's Tour. We'll hear more from Chase later this week on his transition from collegiate to professional golf!
