CROMWELL, Conn. - Ever since graduating from Mosley and going on to play at Florida State, professional golfer Chase Seiffert's career has been trending upward.
It all culminated into his performance this past weekend at the Travelers Championship in Connecticut.
"I wasn't even thinking about it,” The Panama City local says, “I was just playing golf, taking it one shot at a time. I was so engrossed in what we were doing on the course, and wasn't really trying to think ahead too much, and then all of the sudden it was like 'whoa, I'm two shots back. I'm kind of in the lead here."
After qualifying for the tournament on Monday, Seiffert began the Travelers on fire, putting in eagles on the 3rd and 13th holes Friday, placing him at -6 and only two shots back of the lead after two days.
He ended the tournament -3 for the weekend – tied for 43rd – marking his first Sunday finish on the PGA Tour since turning pro four years ago.
It was by far his largest earnings for a tournament in his career, roughly $20,000.
Now, he knows there's still a long way to go, and plenty more golf to be played, but he's proud of where he is at this moment.
"It's been a long road from when I turned professional back in 2013,” Seiffert says, “I would have thought I had been out there by now. But I like the way things have turned out in a way. It's helped me develop as a player. I have a lot more experience. I've kind of grown in proper areas. My game is trending in the right direction towards a very successful end of 2017 here."
