Culminated by a birdie on the 72nd hole, NeSmith shot a Sunday low 64 to win by one shot and secure his PGA TOUR card for the first time. “We are thrilled for Matthew’s first professional victory,” stated Tim Reed, SVP of Sports Marketing at Callaway Golf. “With temperatures approaching 95 degrees, Matthew‘s Callaway Apparel, with stretch fabric and moisture-wicking technologies, helped him stay cool and relaxed and enabled him to play his best to earn his TOUR card.”

Matthew’s Winning Look:

Men’s Scramble Print Polo

Men’s Lightweight Stretch Tech Pant – Caviar

Men’s Perforated Belt – Iron Gate

“It’s awesome,” NeSmith said of the win and of earning his PGA Tour card. “It’s right up there with everything. I’ve done some really cool stuff throughout my career. Going to the PGA Tour next year, it definitely hasn’t set in yet. I can’t wait. It’s going to be so cool.”
