The Hi-Top Golf – Get to Know series will be highlighting some lesser known PGA Tour players that we think the casual weekend duffer should be aware of. Let’s move beyond the Rorys and Tigers and get to know some real Golf Pro lifers.
Who: Aaron Wise
Why: Just won the AT&T Byron Nelson Champ
Career Tour Wins: 1
South African born but USA raised, Wise is well wise beyond his years. A National Champ at Oregon Wise just notched his first career Tour victory by smashing the scoring record at this year’s Byron Nelson Tournament.
Why Aaron Wise is a Hi-Top Guy
Shooting a 23 Under is just plain nuts no matter when you do it but capping your first career PGA win by notching a cool 65 after a 4 hour rain delay on Sunday means you got the ol’ proverbial ice water in your veins.
An aviation enthusiast, Wise loves to carve replica plane models out of salvaged wood he finds along the Oregon coast.
The question for young Wise is can he now follow up his first Tour win with continued success all summer long?
We shall see.
