Mills runs away with Boise Open

GOLFWEEK STAFF

Jon Mills entered the Albertsons Boise Open on the bubble to earn a PGA Tour card. A 7-under 64 in chilly conditions Sunday at Hillcrest Country Club took care of that.

The former Kent State standout finished at 21-under 263 for a three-shot victory that moved him up 19 spots to No. 5 on the Nationwide Tour money list. The top 25 on that list at season’s end earn PGA Tour cards.

Mills birdied six of his first 12 holes Sunday, but his lead was in doubt after bogeys on Nos. 13 and 15. The 29-year-old responded with an eagle on the par-5 16th and a birdie on the final hole.

“Making that second bogey probably helped me actually,” Mills said. “After seeing that I had the three-stroke lead, I was a shocked and got distracted. Making the bogeys got me a little mad and helped me just refocus on golf.”

It was Mills’ second Nationwide Tour victory. He also won the 2005 Canadian PGA Championship in his home country.

Mills made his first appearance on the PGA Tour in 2006, but made just six cuts in 27 appearances.
