Pro Golfer Broke Down in Tears While Calling His Father to Tell Him He Qualified for His First PGA Tour Event

For golfers chasing the PGA Tour dream, the sport is a grind.
 
Many spend years working the mini tours in hopes of one day ascending to PGA competition.
 
On Monday, Michael Visacki reached the mountaintop after seven years of trying. Visacki will be in the field for this week’s Valspar Championship in Florida after surviving the Monday qualifier.
 
Visacki, who played at the University of Central Florida before starting his professional career in 2013, sank a 20-foot putt in a playoff during the Monday qualifier to secure his first PGA Tour start.
 
After his round, Visacki called his father to share the news. “I made it,” he said through tears.
 


 
Visacki had to grind through the playoff to make the Valspar field. After flaring his drive wide on a playoff hole, he had to play out of some trouble to save par and stay in the running.
 
The Twitter account Monday Q Info tracked his round.
 


 
But Visacki escaped with a par before later sinking the key 20-foot putt.
 


 
Visacki will have his work cut out for him if he’s to make the cut and play through the weekend at the Valspar, but after his big day on Monday, he’ll have a few more fans cheering him on when he tees off.
