FARMINGTON — If nothing else, Peter Kuest is rewarding the people who decided to give him a sponsor exemption into the Korn Ferry Tour’s 2022 Utah Championship golf tournament.

The former BYU golfer, who won 10 college tournaments for the Cougars from 2016-20, is tied for fifth place (14-under) through 54 holes of the scheduled 72-hole event at rain-soaked Oakridge Country Club.

Kuest, 24, was No. 170 on the KFT points list when he entered the tournament but moved up the leaderboard Saturday and is only two shots out of the lead entering Sunday’s final round.

A win could be career-changing, but Kuest refuses to get ahead of himself.
