WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – The Wichita Open brings golfers from both near and far.

Gannon earned a spot in the field this week through Monday’s qualifying round.
“Definitely, and it’s fun kind of weird sleeping in my own bed playing a tournament, but, it’s a lot of fun and knew some people out there, so it was definitely a good time,” said Gannon.
As for playing at Crestview Country Club, Gannon says he was already pretty familiar with the course.
“I’ve played here pretty decent amount, usually it’s a little shorter, just a bunch of friends, overall, I’ve played here quite a bit,” said Gannon.
Gannon sits in a tie for 130th place after shooting a 72 in the opening round.
