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.

Sure, yesterday's passing cold front and lingering rainfall made for a cooler-than average, fall-like day across the Tri-State - today on the other hand, was a bit more summer-like. The core of high pressure flowing in behind that cold front has now settled to our east and is actively pumping southerly winds, more heat and gulf humidity back into the Ohio valley. As a result, temperatures pushed back into the mid 80s for the majority of the region; the added humidity even made it feel a few degrees hotter as well. As for the rest of the evening, conditions will remain dry with temperatures gradually falling from 80° around dinnertime into the mid to low 70s by 10PM. The combination of added cloud cover overnight and those aforementioned southerly winds will help keep temperatures mild tonight - we'll only dip as low as 67° early Friday morning in the River City.
