What seemed like a Walker Cup snub may have been a reverse snub, of sorts.
The U.S. Golf Association announced its final three picks for the U.S. Walker Cup team that will head over to Royal Aberdeen next month to take on Great Britain & Ireland. The one big omission was NCAA Championship individual winner John Peterson. The LSU product also came in second place at the Nationwide Tour’s Nationwide Children’s Hospital Invitational.
So Peterson has gone with Plan B. On his Twitter account just after midnight on Monday, Peterson announced he has turned pro.
He tweeted, “Now a professional golfer…..time to take the positives I learned as an amateur and work my tail off, nothing in life comes easy. #excited”
