Donnie Trosper, 23, qualifies for third PGA Tour tournament; he’ll wear a Metro Detroit Golfers hat

He’s got some new finances, and now he’s got his old swagger back, too.

Donnie Trosper, the Michigan State alum and Canton native who played his first two PGA Tour events last summer, qualified Monday for this week’s Puerto Rico Open, the tournament being played opposite of the World Golf Championship in Bradenton, Florida.

Trosper shot a 7-under 64 at PGA National in West Palm Beach, Florida, on Monday morning, then waited and waited and waited until final seeing his score hold up for one of four spots available Monday night. Trosper finished tied for second of the 111 players in the field.

Ben Cook, the 2020 and 2018 Michigan PGA champion from Caledonia in West Michigan, finished in a three-way tie for fourth, and because of darkness, he will return to the course early Tuesday morning for a playoff for the final spot.

Trosper, 24, moved to Florida in the fall to prepare for a run at some PGA Tour events, while playing the Florida mini-tour circuit. He won a mini-tour event in Florida, for $3,000.
