Former Aggie Wins PGA Tour Championship Tournament

Las Cruces, NM - Former New Mexico State golfer Tom Byrum (1983-84) recently won the PGA Tour Champions' National Qualifying Tournament at TPC Scottsdale.

 

A day after tying the tournament record with a 10-under 61, Byrum had a 5-under 65 to match Tolles at 19-under 265 on the Champions Course. Byrum eagled No. 17 for a share of the lead, and won the playoff with a 7-footer.

 

The two golfers, Byrum and Tolles, earned full exemptions for next season along with Kent Jones, Tim Petrovic and re-instated amateur Ken Tanigawa.

 

Byrum’s older brother Curt is also a former PGA Tour winner and currently serves as an analyst on the Golf Channel.
