While the Kansas Jayhawks were on the verge of advancing to the Sweet 16 in the NCAA basketball tournament, Gary Woodland was busy excelling at another sport. He's a Topeka native now playing professional golf on the PGA Tour. Yesterday (SUN), he won his first event. Woodland collected a check for 990-thousand dollars for winning the Transitions Championship in Palm Harbor, Florida.
Woodland played basketball at Washburn University before transferring to KU to play golf. He has now qualified to play in the Masters Tournament next month in Augusta, Georgia.
