Golf Country Awaits

From an exceptional round at Riviera that earned him an exemption into the Genesis Scottish Open, 2024 Genesis Invitational Collegiate Showcase champion Cole Rueck is headed to golf country, marking a first in the event’s decade-span history.

 


This past February, the then Boise State University sophomore shot an exceptional even-par round that would lead into an enthralling playoff round to determine a champion. Beginning on Riviera’s famed par-4 10th hole, Rueck and Washington’s Petr Hruby both made par, moving the playoff to the par-5 11th hole. Just a few shots away from a win, Rueck found an opening to take the lead with his second shot on the 11th. With a short chip and 7-foot putt, Rueck claimed Collegiate Showcase victory.

Rueck won’t be the only Genesis Invitational Collegiate Showcase winner to be teeing it up in the 2024 Genesis Scottish Open at The Renaissance Club. Past showcase winners in the field include Rueck, Scottie Scheffler (2018), Sahith Theegala (2019) and Will Zalatoris (2015).
