Korn Ferry Tour rookie Grant Hirschman fired rounds of 63-68-67-72 to finished in a tie for fourth place at the Price Cutter Charity Championship in Sprinfield, Missouri. The event was Hirschman’s thirteenth start of the 2019 season after starting the year with conditional status. Hirschman was a member of PGA Tour Canada in 2018 after a stand-out career at the University of Oklahoma where he was a three-time All-American and captain of the 2017 National Championship golf team.
The fourth place marked the best finish on Tour for Hirschman, and his first Top Ten of the season. Vaulting up the Points List, Grant stands at 95th with two regular season events remaining, this week at the Ellie Mae Classic in Hayward, California and then on to the WinCo Foods Portland Open presented by KraftHeinz. A move inside the Top 75 by the completion of the Portland Open will get Hirschman into the Playoffs while remaining 76-100 on the Points List will maintain status for his rookie season.
