    Jackson Koivun earned his 15th point in PGA TOUR University Accelerated after making the cut at the Memorial Tournament presented by Workday. Koivun birdied two of the final five holes in the second round to get inside the cutline at Muirfield Village Golf Club in his PGA TOUR debut. Koivun earned a spot in the field after winning the Jack Nicklaus Award.

    Koivun became the first freshman to sweep the three collegiate player of the year awards in the same season. The Auburn freshman won the Jack Nicklaus Award, Ben Hogan Award and Haskins Award on top of leading the Tigers to their first national championship in program history. Koivun needs to earn 20 points to earn his TOUR card and would join Gordon Sargent as the only other player to reach that threshold.
