In a thank you letter to Vanderbilt on Monday, Owensboro native/Owensboro Catholic grad John Augenstein announced his intentions of becoming a professional golfer.

"Today, November 23, I have decided it is time for my story at Vanderbilt to end," Augenstein said in his letter. "I will begin my professional golf career moving forward."

According to Vanderbilt, Augenstein came to the University as the top-ranked player out of Kentucky in 2016, was an individual state champion in 2014, and Kentucky’s Mr. Golf in 2015.

Augenstein made his Masters debut earlier in November, where he competed at the Augusta National Golf Course.

Our snowy, slick start to the day gave way to a gloomy, gray and chilly afternoon throughout the Tri-State. After only reaching temperatures in the mid 30s early in the day, we will see temperatures gradually tumble back down into the upper 20s by 10 o’clock. Despite the gradual clearing conditions overnight (which would normally lead too a much colder morning), the mercury is expected to remain relatively stable into early Tuesday morning. The return of a southerly wind flow overnight will help keep the temperatures milder as we head towards daybreak.
