Michael Visacki wants to stand out as an example on the PGA Tour

Michael Visacki turned pro about seven years ago and never stopped grinding. His only goal was to make it to the PGA Tour and he fulfilled it. There is no better feeling of living your dream, but Michael Visacki wants to put behind the emotions and focus on the work. 

Visacki birdied his first-ever hole on the PGA Tour and ended up shooting 3-over 74 on Thursday. While the Round 1 performance did not get him on the top half of the leaderboard, Visacki was overjoyed with the experience. 

“I hope that it gives other guys like me inspiration to keep going, because I know a lot of guys that just give up, they’re like, Oh, you know, I’m not good enough, I don’t think I’m good enough, or, I’m not good at this or I’m not good at that,” he mentioned.

The 27-year-old iterated on the importance of self-belief and how it motivates a person. It took Visacki 37 wins on the West Florida Pro Tour to gain entry into the PGA Tour, but some other person might face a different circumstance. 

The situation might be different, but hardwork is always the key to finding success. Michael Visacki wants to stand out as an example, and his primary motive is to help players sustain self-belief and keep trying.
