The dunker’s name was Jordan Kilganon, and his stunt not only won over the All-Stars in attendance – no small feat, considering the gravity defying dunks displayed by Aaron Gordon Fresh off wowing the best players in the NBA, Kilganon spoke with Rolling Stone about his strange career choice, how he

After Will Gordon opened with a 68 at the Travelers Championship last week, he texted his Vanderbilt coach Scott Limbaugh this simple message: “I’m trending.”

Indeed, he was. The 23-year-old Gordon, the 2019 Southeastern Conference Player of the Year, made the most of a special invite and followed with a 62 on Friday en route to a career-best T-3 finish that earned him special temporary membership for the remainder of the PGA Tour season.

That’s a big deal for Gordon, who had already earned enough FedEx Cup points to qualify for the Korn Ferry Finals only to see those events postponed until next year.

In eighth PGA start, Gordon fires 62 to lead Travelers

  In eighth PGA start, Gordon fires 62 to lead Travelers Will Gordon, playing in only his eighth PGA Tour event thanks to a sponsor exemption, fired an eight-under-par 62 Friday to seize a two-stroke lead at the Travelers Championship. The 23-year-old American stood on 12-under 128 after 36 holes at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Connecticut, as Canada's Mackenzie Hughes, the overnight leader after an opening 60, teed off to begin his second round. Gordon fired nine birdies against a lone bogey in his first PGA start since February's Puerto Rico Open as the tour took a three-month hiatus from March until two weeks ago."I hit a little bit better today and the putter has been working really nice," Gordon said.

Duden invented and patented the croquet style putter , which he named " The Dude ".[1][5] When other well-known professionals like Sam Duden had 22 holes-in-one during his career. In his later years, he worked as a teaching pro at Glendoveer Golf Course, where an annual tournament bears his

Gordon was overshadowed by his graduating class’s Big 3 of Viktor Hovland, Collin Morikawa and Matthew Wolff. While they were making noise on Tour last summer, Gordon made nine starts on Mackenzie Tour-PGA Tour Canada, making eight cuts and earning two top-10 finishes to end the season No. 21 on the Order of Merit. Then he flunked out of the second stage of Korn Ferry Tour Q-School. A return to Canada appeared to be his best option until the season north of the border was canceled due to the global pandemic.

Gordon has made seven starts on the PGA Tour this season, and can receive unlimited sponsor exemptions for the rest of the season – he said he’s got one secured for the Wyndham Championship and is waiting on others. To earn full status for the 2020-21 season, Gordon must earn as many or more points through the non-member FedExCup points list as No. 125 on the 2019-20 season FedExCup standings. Gordon currently has 296 points, which would fall between Nos. 78 and 79 in the current FedExCup standings. (No. 125 currently has 191 points.)

Gordon had three invites into tournaments canceled by COVID-19. But Limbaugh said that when he visited Nashville during quarantine he never had a woe-is-me attitude. Gordon spent most of his time in Charlotte and played in regular money games with the likes of Webb Simpson and Harold Varner III. Gordon is a bomber, but he learned a great deal playing alongside Simpson, who is known for shaping the ball and suggested they play some holes from the member’s tees, taking driver out of Gordon’s hands. As part of his effort to become a more complete player, Gordon began working with Sea Island Resort instructor Justin Parsons, and the mentorship of Simpson and Patton Kizzire bolstered his confidence.

Gordon recently missed 16 games after undergoing surgery to repair a fracture to the same finger. The New Orleans Pelicans announced today that guard Eric Gordon underwent successful surgery this morning to repair his fractured right ring finger.

“It just furthers my belief in myself that I can hang with those guys,” Gordon said.

Gordon has displayed his power game, routinely ranking in the top-5 in driving distance, and posted four top-25 finishes in his last five starts, but it was his putter that did the most damage at TPC River Highlands.

“The overlooked aspect of his game is his putter,” Limbaugh said. “The dude hoops with his putter.”

All Gordon wanted was a chance to compete and he capitalized on his opportunity at the Travelers. On his 10-hour drive from Hartford to Detroit for this week’s Rocket Mortgage Classic, Gordon FaceTimed his coach (while his caddie drove) and opened by saying, “Thank you.”

“You don’t get a ton of those moments as a coach,” Limbaugh said, “but you could just tell that it was starting to hit him that he’s got a really good chance to be a PGA Tour member now.”
