SPRINGFIELD (WCIA) — Illinois golfer Michael Feagles is getting his first chance to play on the Web.com Tour, thanks to a local tournament’s invite. The junior will tee it up as a sponsor exemption in the Lincoln Land Championship next month at Panther Creek Country Club.
The fourth annual event always features one Illini golfer on an exemption. Feagles led the team this season in stroke average at 70.64. The Scottsdale, Arizona native won the NCAA Myrtle Beach Regional, helping the Illini reach the NCAA Championships for the 12th-straight season.
