It’s been quite the year for professional golfer Richy Werenski.
Just last spring, he was still in school, finishing up a decorated collegiate career at Georgia Tech with his strongest finish in the NCAA Championship. After graduating in June, he turned pro and promptly won three professional tournaments. He then made the Lowcountry his permanent home and is currently featured as a contestant on a popular televised golfing reality competition while pursuing his dreams on the PGA’s developmental Web.Com circuit.
The hope, possibly soon, is to launch himself into the sport’s highest ranks, the PGA Tour.
“It’s been exciting. I really couldn’t ask to be doing anything else. I love it,” Werenski said. “Whether it’s going to actually work out or not, you never know, but you’ve got to give it a shot. And I’m fortunate enough to be able to do that right now.”
