Team Titleist caught up with Titleist Brand Ambassador Erik Compton yesterday at the AT&T National, just a few days removed from his first-career victory at the Nationwide Tour's Mexico Open.
Erik, 31, a two-time heart transplant recipient, closed with a final-round 6-under 65 at a rainy, windy El Bosque Golf Club for a 17-under 271 and two-shot victory. The win pushed Erik to No. 2 on the Nationwide Tour money list, in prime position to earn a 2012 PGA Tour card.
“My lifelong goal has been to get to the PGA Tour and now I’ve done that,” said Erik, who has now made the cut in 12 of 13 starts this season on the PGA Tour and Nationwide Tour. He is also playing in this week's AT&T National on the PGA Tour.
