East Aurora’s Wier chasing pro golf dream

EAST AURORA, N.Y. (WIVB) – East Aurora’s Thad Wier is on his way up the ladder, earning exempt status on the PGA Canada Tour.

Wier, who played his college golf at St. John Fisher, views it as one step closer to his ultimate goal of joining the PGA Tour.

“My goal is 2-3 years to be playing on the web.com full time, then another two years, get myself to kind of grow and be able to play full-time on the PGA Tour,” said Wier.

Wier shot a 67 (-5) in the final round last week to move up 20 points on the leaderboard and clinch a spot.
