Dylan Frittelli will tee it up at The Open this week after reversing a two-shot deficit into a two-shot win at the John Deere Classic.
FedExCup ranking: 153 –> 48
John Deere Classic: 33rd PGA TOUR start
John Deere Classic: He becomes the ninth first-time PGA TOUR winner at the event
164 yards – He got relief after his shot from 164 yards just cleared the greenside bunker due to a sprinkler ahead with his ball just on the lip of the bunker on the 8th hole. A tournament-deciding ruling as it turned out as he chipped it to 13 inches
12 – Frittelli makes it a dozen first-time winners this season
4 – A fast start helped pave the way to victory with four birdies in his opening five holes
10 – The turn saw the former Texas University star chip in, something of a trademark for Frittelli these days
2019 – Speaking of the University of Texas, Frittelli sank the winning putt at the 2012 NCAA Tournament in a team that included Jordan Spieth, who won this event in 2013 and 2015. Texan alumni now account for three wins.
2 – Frittelli is due at The Open this week but that’s not the only Major he will play in with a ticket to the 2020 Masters Tournament and THE PLAYERS Championship, among other select events, now on his schedule
13 – Lucky for some? He has made 13 of 19 cuts in the 2018-19 season
92 – Back inside the top 100 now. Frittelli jumped from 133 to 92 after his win. He started the year ranked 72nd.
