Former UK Golfer, Chip McDaniel, is getting another shot on the PGA Tour.

McDaniel made the cut at the U.S. Open, his first major event on tour, where he finished 78th at +13. He followed that up with a Traveler’s Championship appearance where he finished tied for 48th, -3. The Clay County native played his final two rounds with the world number one player, Brooks Koepka, where he had better scores.

McDaniel has plans to return to Lexington in July to play in the Barbasol Championship, July 18th-21st.
