Bennett turned pro after graduating from Loyola University. He recently won his first pro tournament at Thistle Golf Club in Sunset Beach, N.C. En route to his first pro victory, Bennett sank a birdie putt during his first playoff hole of the tournament while shooting a 65 during the round to earn a victory.
Bennett has advanced to stage 1 of the Web.com Qualifying school after shooting a 65 on the final round. He aspires to qualify for the Web.com tour and will have to advance through the next two stages to gain entry to the tour. By qualifying for this tournament, Bennett will move one step closer to achieving his goal of playing on the PGA Tour. Bennett is sponsored by Foot Joy for shoes, as well as Rhoback for shirts.
