Will Dickson Makes Pro Debut Tuesday
Rhode Island’s Will Dickson is set to make his professional golf debut on Tuesday.
Dickson will be playing in the Savanah Quarters Open in Georgia as part of the G-Pro Tour.
“Honestly, it’s been really really cool. I thought it would be a little different than it has been, but it’s been so much different in a good way. I can plan out my entire day, my entire week. I’m really focused on the other 16 hours of the day that I’m not playing golf, training, eating, sleeping etc… I wake up, go to gym, train with a group of guys, then I go to the course and practice,” Dickson told GolfNewsRI a few weeks ago.
The tournament runs from October 26 to October 28.
The G-Pro Tour is one of the top mini-tours in the country.
The purse for the tournament has not yet been released, however, purse’s for previous tournaments on tour have been as much as $99K
Dickson looks to make a name for himself there.
“What club companies and agents want to see is you play a full schedule, 20-25 tournaments a year and if you can finish in the top 10 of the money list on a mini-tour then that lets people know you can actually play with the best pros out there that are trying to make it,” said Dickson.
The G-Pro Tour only has two tournaments left of the season, the Savannah Tournament and then the Harbor Classic in November.
After that, it’s on to the 2022 season starting in February.
“The goal for 2022 is to finish high up on the tour’s money list. Then it is on to Q-School.”
It has been a long road for Will Dickson, but the grind and dream roll on.
