It will mark the first of two PGA Tour events in July for Van Sickle, who will join Alabama-Birmingham graduate Zach Sucher in the Quad Cities-based tournament.

Van Sickle, who is currently ranked sixth in the R&A World Amateur Rankings, capped off his senior season at Marquette with First Team All-America and BIG EAST Player of the Year honors. He was also the winner of the prestigious Byron Nelson Award.

Earlier this month it was announced that Van Sickle and former Clemson star Kyle Stanley were given sponsor’s exemptions into the U.S. Bank Championship in Milwaukee, Wis., July 13-19.
