Somewhat in keeping with our tradition of a “Play of the week,” we’ll call this one a “Play of a lifetime.”

On March 11, 2018, Martin Trainer shoots -14 after SUNDAY QUALIFYING for the El Bosque Mexico Championship by Innova for his first win on the WEB.COM TOUR.  He’s the first player on the TOUR to complete this feet since 2016, and went from no status at all to fully exempt on the WEB.COM TOUR through 2019.  He’s also put himself in prime position to make it all the way to the PGA TOUR next year.  Truly a life-changing weekend.

Congrats, buddy!
