The golfing world has witnessed the emergence of a genuine future superstar with the arrival in professional golf of Ben Kohles.
Today Kohles made it two out of two in starts in professional golf events by winning the Web.com Tour’s Cox Classic at the Champions Run in Omaha in Nebraska just seven days after winning the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Invitational in Ohio.
The 22 year old Kohles turned professional after playing the recent Porter Cup and after an amateur career at the University of Virginia that saw him become a three time All American.
Kohles had originally planned to turn professional after this year’s US Amateur but after being given an invitation to the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Invitational he made the decision to turn to the paid ranks then and given that the victories have earned him guaranteed graduation to the PGA Tour in 2013 the decision has proven a great one.
Kohles final round of 62 in Nebraska swept him to a three shot victory over South African Dawie Van der Walt, the winner recording just two bogeys in his 72 holes.
Steve Allan finished as the leading Australian when he shared 13th position while Peter Lonard was next best when 22nd.
