BEACHWOOD, OH (WJHG/WECP) - It is another big week in the career of golfer Chase Seiffert, as he continues to stride towards what he hopes will be landing a PGA Tour card for the first time in his career.
The Mosley and FSU alum is currently getting set for the second round of the four Web.Com Tour playoff events, the DAP Championship.
Seiffert played well in the first event in Columbus, Ohio, a total score of three-under tying him for 30th. Heading into the second event, he's just five spots out of the top 25 that will receive PGA Tour cards.
"I'm very happy with my game." Seiffert said by phone Tuesday afternoon after a practice round at the Canterbury Golf Club in Beachwood, Ohio. "I struck the ball very well last week. I think I finished third in fairways hit, and fifth in greens hit. I didn't roll the ball very well with the putter, but I rolled it better on Sunday which is nice to get a little momentum coming into this week. But just the status of my game is good and I'm just outside getting my Tour Card after one event. I'm kind of happy with it."
His game seems to be in good shape and his confidence level is high, a good place for any golfer to be. On top of all that, Chase says he's getting an extra boost by so many folks back home and around the country who are in his corner and rooting for him.
"Yes, a lot of tweets, a lot of text messages, and stuff of that sort. Everyone pulling for me, and a lot of people I haven't heard from in awhile, which is kind of neat," Seiffert said. "A good support group back home and all over the country, just people I've met. Everyone seems to want me to succeed, and it's really nice. You know it's everything, just love having people be nice to me. They want nice things for me and that's a nice thing, it really is."
The DAP Championship tees of at Canterbury Club in Beachwood, Ohio, a little southeast of Cleveland on Thursday morning.
