Former University of Minnesota golfer Bronson La’Cassie has secured a PGA Tour card for the 2013-14 season. La’Cassie won the Cox Classic on Sunday to finish sixth on the Web.com Tour money list.
The Brisbane, Australia, native birdied the final two holes Sunday in Omaha, Neb., to finish at 21-under and force a playoff with Matt Bettencourt. La’Cassie won on the third hole of the playoff.
He is now the fifth former Gopher to earn full PGA Tour status, joining Tom Lehman, James McLean, Aaron Barber and, most recently, Donald Constable.
La’Cassie played at Minnesota from 2004 to 2007. He is the only four-time All-American in program history. La’Cassie won the Big Ten’s Les Bolstad Scoring Award for the lowest seasonal Big Ten average in 2006. He was the conference freshman of the year in 2004.
