Columbus Dispatch’s Tim May does feature on the Trans-Miss Championship

“That’s where I think I can have an advantage, because if I am driving well I know where to put the ball and put myself in position for birdies.”

A back injury blunted the start of his senior season at OSU, but as the school year progressed, so did Wick’s game. Whether he’s got the goods and a strong enough back to make a try for the professional ranks isn’t clear, though, he said, which is why he already has taken a job with the Deloitte professional services company’s branch in Columbus.

“I hold out the dream of playing professional golf, but I have to be realistic about it, too,” Wick said. “I’m using the Trans-Miss as a barometer. How do I compare to some of the world’s top 50 amateurs? If I can’t compete with them at this stage, then maybe it’s not for me. But I’m pretty confident I’m going to surprise some people.”
