Will Dickson Qualifies for 2nd Korn Ferry Tour Tournament
Rhode Island’s Will Dickson is headed back to the Korn Ferry Tour this week.
Dickson won the Monday Qualifier for the Simmons Bank Open, which is set to take place from Thursday to Sunday in College Grove, Tennessee.
Dickson posted a seven-under 65 to win the Monday Q by one shot.
“Fun day. Excited for the week,” Dickson told GolfNewsRI Monday night.
Of the last three Monday Q’s Dickson has played, he has won two of them.
Previously, Dickson qualified for the Club Car Championship, where he made the cut in the tournament.
After a par on the first hole, Dickson birdied the par-5 second hole, then dropped another birdie putt on the fourth hole to get to two under.
Dickson closed the front nine with a birdie on the eighth hole to turn at 33.
On the back side, Dickson birdied ten, then made back-to-back birdies at 12 and 13 to put himself in contention going into the final holes.
The Moses Brown grad birdied the 15th and 17th holes to get to eight under, before closing with a bogey on 18 to finish the round at seven-under.
