Old rivalries dies hard. Just ask Kyle Westmoreland, the first Air Force Academy graduate to earn his PGA Tour card.

“Go Air Force. Beat Army. Sink Navy. And we’re Tour bound, baby,”

he said with the setting behind him and 24 others who made their dreams come true Sunday at Victoria National in Newburgh, Indiana.

Westmoreland, who saw his score inch up in the wrong direction each day this week

posted scores of 69-70-71-72 and finished 6 under, 15 shots back of Korn Ferry Tour Championship winner Justin Suh.

But it was good enough for Westmoreland, the first Air Force grad to play in a U.S. Open

to earn his place on Tour for the 2022-23 season.

He was a senior in college at Air Force in 2014 and then served out his five-year commitment

Westmoreland, 30, finished in the 25th and final spot in the points standings.

The next PGA Tour season starts in Napa, California, at the Fortinet Championship, Sept. 15-18.
