SwingU, the sports technology and media company, would like to congratulate SwingU Versus Ambassadors Austin Hitt and Jacob Bridgeman for earning full status on the PGA Tour Canada in 2022.
Hitt, a first-year pro out of the University of North Carolina who started using SwingU Versus in June to track his stats and guide his practice sessions, shot 22-under par with rounds of 62-72-65-67 (266) at Mission Inn Resort & Club’s El Campeon Course to win his qualifier by three shots.
Bridgeman, a senior at Clemson University, started using SwingU Versus in July and shot 18-under par with rounds of 67-70-65-67 (269) at RTJ Golf Trail – Highland Oaks to win his qualifier by two shots.
