He didn’t make it by much, but Carson Young will be playing this weekend in his first Web.com Tour event as a professional.
The recent Clemson grad needed an outstanding second round to make the cut after shooting an opening round 1-over par 73 at the Lecom Health Challenge in Findley, New York.
The former Tiger shot a 4-under par 68 to climb 67 spots in the tournament and finished the first 36 holes at 3-under par and on the number.
The new pro got to 5-under par before a pair of bogeys on the 15th and 16th holes almost cost him a chance to advance.
However, a birdie on the 17th hole and a par on the final hole helped Young bring his round home at 4-under par and make the cut.
Young, who earned All-ACC honors as a senior, shot a 65 to qualify for the tournament and earn a spot in the field to begin his pro career on the PGA sponsored Tour.
Former Tiger teammate Billy Kennerly shot identical rounds of 68 and is in a tie for tenth place.
Former Gamecock golfer George Bryan IV also made the cut after shooting rounds of 69 and 72 to stand at 3-under par and in a tie with Young and 24 other golfers for the last spot above the cut line.
