North Augusta’s Matt NeSmith won the AJGA FootJoy Invitational on Friday, earning him an exemption to play in the PGA Tour’s Wyndham Championship.
NeSmith, who will be attending the University of South Carolina, finished at 4-under at Cardinal Golf & Country Club in Greensboro, N.C. The North Augusta graduate was tied with Motin Yeung heading into the final hole, but he pared while Yeung bogeyed No. 18.
NeSmith’s win gave him an exemption to the Wyndham Championship, which will be held at Greensboro’s Sedgefield Country Club in August.
