ST. LOUIS (AP) — The Latest on the PGA Championship, golf’s final major of the year (all times local):
Ben Kern is making the most of his first PGA Championship experience.
The lone club professional to make the cut this week among the 20 that tee it up, Kern is 1 under for his final round and 4 under for the championship. That means the former Kansas State star and the club pro at Diamondback Golf Club in Abilene, Texas, could be headed to a nice payday.
Or rather, another nice payday.
Just before coming to Bellerive, Kern shot 14 under to win the Texas State Open. His third-round 62 showed that he was hitting the ball well, as did the $42,500 winner’s check he took him.
“I’ve gotten so much response and enthusiasm and texts, just a lot of support,” Kern said. “It’s been a lot of fun going through that and replying to that and seeing everybody.”
