High school student Miles Russell, 15, given a spot at a PGA Tour event this month as his meteoric rise continues after taking record from Tiger Woods

A high school freshman will be making his PGA Tour debut later this month at the Rocket Mortgage Classic in Michigan.

Miles Russell, a 15-year-old from Jacksonville Beach, Fla., received a sponsor’s exemption Monday for the June 27-30 tournament at Detroit Golf Club.

In a statement released by the tournament’s executive director, Russell has proven himself in other circuits enough to earn an appearance at the event. 

‘The Rocket Mortgage Classic is known as a tournament where ‘future stars start,’ and we’re thrilled to have Miles make his PGA Tour debut here and add to that legacy,’ Jason Langwell, executive director of the Rocket Mortgage Classic, said. 

‘He has proved with his many accomplishments at such a young age that he belongs, and we are excited to see Miles compete alongside the world’s best golfers here at Detroit Golf Club.’

In April, Russell became the youngest player ever to record a top 25 finish at a Korn Ferry Tour event when he finished 20th at the LECOM Suncoast Classic.

In Detroit, he will become the third teenager to debut on the PGA Tour this season after 16-year-olds Kris Kim and Blades Brown.

‘I am thankful to Rocket Mortgage for giving me the opportunity to make my PGA Tour debut,’ Russell said in a statement. 

‘Ever since I first started playing golf, my dream has been to compete on the PGA Tour and test my game against the best players, and I’m looking forward to making the most of the experience later this month.’

Last year, Russell supplanted Tiger Woods as the youngest player ever named the American Junior Golf Association Player of the Year. 

He won the Junior PGA Championship and Junior Players Championship and also competed with the U.S. Junior Ryder Cup squad.

The youngest person to ever make the cut at a PGA Tour-sanctioned event was China’s Guan Tianlang – who at age 14 made the cut as the Asia-Pacific Amateur champion at the 2013 Masters.
