One of the most prolific universities to place players on the PGA Tour has been the University of Georgia. It seems no week goes by without a player from UGA on the leaderboard, and The Sentry leaderboard was topped by none other than former Bulldog Chris Kirk.

Kirk’s victory marked a continuing renaissance of sorts, as he had taken a leave of absence from the PGA Tour in 2019 to deal with alcoholism and mental health issues. He steadily made his way back to prominence, and won the Honda Classic in early 2023 to complete his comeback.

When healthy and focused, Kirk is a force to be reckoned with. He now has six PGA Tour victories and at 38 years of age, he has plenty of time to pick up a few more wins before it’s time to hang up his spikes.
