But most importantly, my one and only main goal was accomplished: I am going to be representing the United States in the 2013 Walker Cup. Words can't describe how excited I truly am to play for the USA in September.

Many questions have been asked about my decision to either turn pro or come back to school in the ...

Chad Collins at the Bob Hope Classic.

Chad Collins started his day by shooting 9-under 27 on the back nine at the par-71 Willow Creek Country Club in the second round of the Web.com Tour's Utah Championship.

Two birdies and five pars later, Collins needed to birdie one of the last two holes of the day to shoot 59.

Collins missed the 17th green with his approach but made a sand save for par. He found the 18th fairway, then found the front of the green to give himself a putt for the sport's hallmark score.

His birdie attempt missed low and finished hole ...

NEWBURGH, Ind. — Assistant club pro Michael Bembenick had a rough start in a Web.com Tour event, and then it got even worse. After making one last double bogey Friday in the United Leasing Championship, he signed for 103.

ATHENS, Ga. — Former Bulldogs star Brendon Todd won the Web.com Tour's Stadion Classic on Sunday when rain washed out the fourth round at the University of Georgia Golf Course.

The 2007 graduate became the third consecutive Bulldogs player to win the event. Russell Henley won in 2011 while still in school, and Hudson Swafford took the 2012 title.

"I think it has something to do with being comfortable out here," said Todd, who helped the Bulldogs win the 2005 NCAA title. "You still have to hit all the shots, but sometimes the shots are just more comfortable. I ...

SANTIAGO, Chile — Kevin Kisner closed with a 4-under 68 Sunday to win the Chile Classic and earn his second career title on the Web.com Tour.
