The Korn Ferry Tour is full of grinders, and Jared Wolfe is high up on that list. He’s high up on another list Sunday after winning the Wichita Open, his second title on that tour in 2020. Wolfe is now up to No. 4 on the Korn Ferry Tour regular season points list.
Wolfe fired rounds of 63-65-65 to open the week at Crestview Country Club. He closed out his week with a final-round 71, which was just enough to keep him one shot ahead of Canadian Taylor Pendrith.
It was hardly a bluebird day in Wichita. After the first six holes, a storm moved into the area, creating a battle for the end of the round.
“That was some pretty intense golf on the last 12 holes,” Wolfe said.
At one point, players were pulled off the course for a weather delay as gusting winds and rain blanketed the course. Wolfe knew he’d have to keep his head down. He made eagle on the par-5 14th and even though he backed that up with bogeys on the next two holes, it was enough to bring home the title.
Eagle at the 14th for @JaredWolfePro!

“I knew that a couldn’t let up,” Wolfe said of returning to the golf course. “I knew we couldn’t give shots away.”
Wolfe is an 11th-year pro who has won three times on the PGA Tour Latinoamerica. He also won the Bahamas Great Abaco Classic at Baha Mar on the Korn Ferry Tour in January. A third win would give him an instant promotion to the PGA Tour.
“It’s crazy,” Wolfe said of being on the cusp. “It kind of puts things at peace for me a little bit about having to wait another year for the PGA Tour but maybe not. It’s huge. I feel like I’ve been playing great all year.”
