A Little Piece Of History For Atwal

By Sean Crogie   Posted at  8/23/2010 01:04:00 AM   No comments

Most people waking up today will look at the Sports headlines and notice a guy named Arjun won the Wyndham Championship on the PGA Tour. Who the @#$^%* is Arjun Atwal. Well he's a guy who lost his PGA Tour card after he couldn't make enough money on a minor medical exemption. So he Monday qualified for the 2010 Wyndham Championship and after firing rounds of 61-67-65-67 he won for the first time on the PGA Tour and garnered a little bit of history becoming the first Indian-born player to win on PGA Tour and the first to win both the qualifier and the tournament that follows since Fred Wadsworth at the 1986 Southern Open.



























He now has a spot on Tour (although he's not eligible for the FedEx Cup playoffs) earned some cash ($918,000), and invites to the 2011 Masters and PGA Championship. Not bad for a guy who didn't know what his next event would be.

Arjun Atwal WITB -Equipment news
Nice win for Fourteen wedges as well. More and more players have been using Fourteen Golf's clubs. Arjun Atwal trusted this companies wedges and ended up winning with them. Nice up and down on #18 btw.
