Nate Nashley, now ranked 101 will tee off with Phil Mickelson and Tony Finau in the new 3M Open on Thursday morning.
He has been featured in Thursday’s premier pairings after he played with Mickelson and Lee Westwood in Houston last year and with Jordan Spieth in the U.S. Open.
Lashley won at the Mortage Classic last week. He got his first PGA Tour victory 15 years ago when he lost his parents and girlfriend in a plane crash. He aimed to finish at top ten last week and ended up winning $1.3 million.
Speaking of his first tour victory after he won once on the Web.com, three times on the PGA Tour Latinoamerica, Lashley said that he went from finishing in the dark to playing with Phil and Tony and he didn’t know to what extent it would change his life.
Lashley is excited to play with those guys, and he likes the competition and more so the way people are following them.
