Ben Cook has a job, and it’s not playing on the PGA Tour.
Cook is one of the 20 club professionals in the 103rd PGA Championship field; he teaches at Yankee Springs, in Michigan, in the summers, and John’s Island Club, in South Florida, the rest of the year. This is his third PGA Championship start, and for the first time he made the cut, which he followed with an impressive three-under 69 on Saturday playing alongside Webb Simpson.
“I’m just so happy to be here,” he said. “It’s been a blast, really. I’m so thankful and blessed.”
