BOISE -- Every year for the last 23 years, golf fans know a couple of things. Come mid-September, they can watch a pretty good golf tournament in Boise with some up-and-coming players in it, and in the end, a whole lot of money will go to local charities.

The Albertsons Boise Open was held at Hillcrest Country Club this week. It's a tournament that has raised $14 million for charity.

It wrapped up Sunday evening with a very exciting finish.

History was made, in fact, by Luke Guthrie. He was near the top of the leaderboard going into the final round and then made a big move with an eagle, five birdies and just one bogey.

Guthrie ran away with it, shooting a 65, and his 22 under for the tournament is lowest score in 23 years of the Boise Open.

Guthrie picked up his first win on the Tour and also secured his PGA Tour card for next year.

And he did it while doing another pretty important thing. He is also working on getting his college degree.

That's right, he's in his final semester at the University of Illinois, and is a full-time student while playing golf professionally. He even had to take a quiz just a few days ago.
