Former Apollo golfer Matt Atkins is back in home territory as he participates in the United Leasing & Finance Championship at Victoria National Golf Course in Newburgh, Indiana. He is a 2009 graduate of Apollo High school and a 2013 graduate of the University of South Carolina-Aiken.
Atkins is currently 75th on the money list and averages 72.83 on 18 holes of golf. It’s still very early in the year, and last year Atkins finished 32nd on the web.com tour money list in 2016, in which he earned $138,748. That a lot of money to do something you love, and Atkins is quickly becoming a rising star on the web.com circuit. If Atkins can improve on his 2016 totals, he’ll push to to participate in PGA events. Last year, Atkins played in the Sanderson Farms Championship in Jackson, Mississippi where he missed the final round cut. Play continues this weekend at Victoria National.
