Mar, 2023

Ryan Gerard is currently in the midst a two-week golf stretch that could transform his life.

The Honda Classic was Monday’s 23-year-old qualifier. After placing fourth, he took home $411 600. He was also able to get into this week’s alternate-field event, The Puerto Rico Open. There, he is T-4 at 8-under, 136 going into the weekend.

Gerard will be granted temporary membership to the PGA Tour if he finishes in a tie for ninth or higher. The next 36 holes at Grand Reserve Golf Club, Rio Grande, Puerto Rico will be pressure-packed.

Gerard stated that if you truly care about something, it can sometimes be more difficult for yourself than it should be. Sometimes I have to step back and try to see the bigger picture and enjoy all of it.

“It’s a PGA Tour event, and I’m staying at a hotel on the coast. There are a few cool things, and the golf is just a bonus. It doesn’t define me. While I would love to be a great golfer, it doesn’t define who I am as a person.

“It’s been a lot easier to let go of the course since I started to realize that. It’s something I want to do, and I am still putting in the effort. All of these things combined have put me in a great place. Good things can happen when you hit it right.

If the North Carolina grad keeps hitting it well this weekend then those good things will surely come.

Gerard and the rest of the pack are following Carson Young, who is sitting at 14 under after rounds 63-67.

Gerard would be eligible to play in the Players Championship next week if he wins. He would be in the Valspar Championship in just two weeks if he finishes in the top 10.

He’s still in the midst a strong run, which could lead to more success.

Gerard stated that the past week and a-half has felt like a rollercoaster. It’s been great, I don’t know what I’m doing, but playing well, quickly turning around, flying… it’s all really amazing. I’m lucky to be here, and I know that I’m doing well. I take these two things in stride, and I’m going to have fun this weekend. If I play well, it will be fine.
