Jon Mills, Indiana, fired 65-68-66-64 - 263, beating D.A. Points by three strokes, to win the Nationwide Tour stop at Boise, Idaho. The victory guarantees him a spot on the PGA Tour in 2008, the second time Mills has earned his card. The Boise win was Mills’ first Nationwide Tour title, the others in 2005 when Mills gained his PGA Tour slot for the first time.

After losing his PGA Tour privileges Mills had several strong Nationwide finishes to get in the hunt for returning next year. This win removes all doubt, as Mills is now fifth on the money list. The top 25 players on the Nationwide Tour receive PGA Tour cards the following season. Mills also qualified for this year’s US Open at Oakmont, missing the cut by one stroke, one of many when winner Angel Cabrera birdied the ninth hole, his final hole, on Friday. He advanced through the Open Local at Indiana CC and the Chicago Sectional.

Mills, a native of Ontario, played college golf at Kent State, as a teammate of Ben Curtis. While at Kent State, he met his wife Megan, whose family resides in Indiana, PA.
