Penner to make PGA Tour debut

Eastlake alum Kevin Penner is set to make his PGA Tour debut at the J.T. Shriner's Open.

A former member of the Wolves golf team was also greeted with some positive news, as UVLV alum and Sammamish native Kevin Penner earned a spot in the 2013 J.T. Shriners Open at TPC Sumermerlin in Las Vegas.

All proceeds from the event benefit Shiners Hospital for Children and the total purse is set at $6 million.

Penner, who has been playing on circuit tours since graduating from UNLV this year, received a sponsor’s exemption to the field.
