Best Golfers from Every State: Ohio golf and Jack Nicklaus

By tim letcher | jun 16, 2020.

We continue our best golfers from every state series by taking a look at Ohio golf, and the top golfer from the state, Jack Nicklaus

When someone is, in the mind of many, the greatest golfer of all-time, that makes him or her an easy choice to be the best golfer ever from their state. So is the case with the legendary Jack Nicklaus and Ohio golf.

Nicklaus is Ohio born and bred. He was born in Columbus on January 21, 1940 and attended Ohio State University, where he was a collegiate All-American. In fact, he was the first player to win the NCAA individual championship and the U.S. Amateur in the same season when he did so in 1961.

Before turning pro, Nicklaus considered remaining an amateur and following in the footsteps of his idol Bobby Jones. However, Nicklaus decided to turn pro and did so near the end of 1961.

In his 17th career start, Nicklaus got his first win, and it was a big one. Nicklaus topped fan favorite Arnold Palmer in an 18-hole playoff to win the 1962 U.S. Open at Oakmont Country Club in Pennsylvania.

Nicklaus would win two more times in 1962 and would be named PGA Tour Rookie of the Year. In 1963, he established himself as the best player in the world by claiming titles at the Masters and the PGA Championship. He would win five times on tour that season.

He would complete the career grand slam in 1966 by winning the Open Championship at Muirfield Golf Links. At the time, he was the youngest player to ever win the career grand slam (26), a record that has since been passed by Tiger Woods.

Nicklaus would win the career grand slam three times on his way to winning a record 18 major championships. He holds the record for the most victories in the Masters, claiming six green jackets in his illustrious career. Nicklaus and Walter Hagen won the most PGA Championships with five apiece. And Nicklaus is tied with Ben Hogan and Bobby Jones for the most U.S. Open titles, with each player winning four times.

Think about that record for just a second  – Nicklaus holds or shares the record for most titles in three of the four majors

The only one where he doesn’t hold the record is the Open Championship, where he “only” won three times.

Nicklaus holds a ton of golf records, including the 18 major championships, which may never be broken. Even more amazingly, Nicklaus was runner up in majors on 19 occasions. Nicklaus won multiple majors in 1963, 1966, 1972, 1975 and 1980. He won at least one major championship every season from 1970-73. Many players hope to win a single major in their career. Nicklaus made it a habit.

Those are just some of the many records that Nicklaus holds or is close to holding. His 73 PGA Tour wins rank third all-time, trailing just Sam Snead and Woods, who each have 82 wins. From 1962 to 1978, Nicklaus won at least twice each year on the PGA Tour. And the list could go on and on for all of the Golden Bear’s accomplishments.

Nicklaus retired from competitive golf in 2005 but his involvement in the game did not stop when he stopped playing. The Golden Bear had become a masterful golf course designer and designed, or helped redesign, a number of courses including the site of this week’s RBC Heritage, Harbour Town Golf Links.

Next. Ranking the 15 Best Tiger Woods Career Wins. dark

There really wasn’t a lot of competition in the state of Ohio for Nicklaus, as far as being the best golfer from the Buckeye State. Ironically, the second-best player from the state is probably Tom Weiskopf, who would have won many more tournaments if not for Nicklaus. Weiskopf was runner-up to Nicklaus at the Masters twice (1972 and 1975) and finished third in the 1975 PGA Championship, also won by Nicklaus.

With all of his accomplishments and all that he has given to the game, it’s easy to call Nicklaus the best player ever from the state of Ohio. And perhaps the greatest of all-time.

For Masters rookie Eric Cole, golf really did run in the family

pga tour pros from ohio

It is rare, but Masters Tournament rookie Eric Cole is hardly the first participant whose father preceded him at Augusta National Golf Club.

This is the 88 th  playing of the tournament, and Cole will be the 14 th  son to follow in his father’s footsteps. His dad, South African Bobby Cole, played in five Masters, the last one in 1978.

But none of the sons of former Masters participants who played in the tournament also had a mother who was a famous professional golfer, like Cole does.

In fact, when Cole won the PGA Tour rookie of year award last season, it came on the 50 th  anniversary that his mother, former Augustan Laura Baugh, was the LPGA Rookie of the year.

HERE COMES THE CHAMP: Masters champion Jon Rahm can launch himself into superstar status with another green jacket

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: Is Tiger playing? Who's the betting favorite?

A DECADE OF WILD RIDES: Jordan Spieth's Masters debut came 10 years ago, and it hasn't been boring at Augusta for him since

“I think it's kind of a cool thing with my mom winning Rookie of the Year 50 years ago, kind of the 50th anniversary of that,” Cole said. “She won it when she was probably 18 or 19 if I had to guess.”

He was correct – she was 18. Cole was 35, making him the second-oldest rookie of the year on the PGA Tour; Todd Hamilton was 39 when he won it in 2004.

“Different path for me. But it’s just really special,” Cole said.

Eric’s dad, who is now 75, won 13 worldwide titles and once on the PGA Tour at the 1977 Buick Open. He held the honor of being the youngest British Amateur winner for 43 years. As a pro, he had top-three finishes in the 1974 PGA Championship and 1975 British Open.

His best Masters finish was a tie for 15 th  in 1975. He also played in 1967, 1972, 1976 and 1978.

High finishes are what Baugh was known for on the LPGA Tour.

Baugh, who turns 69 next month, started on tour in 1973 through 2000. She never won, but finished as a runner-up 10 times with a mind-boggling 70 top-10 finishes. She was among the most visible LPGA players through her TV and print ads for such products as Colgate’s Ultra Brite toothpaste and Wilson Golf.

Bobby Cole and Baugh married in 1980, divorced in 1985, remarried in 1987 and later divorced again. Their last child, Jamie Cole, is 26 and was born in the late 1990s. In all, they had seven children, starting with Eric.

Baugh and Jamie lived In Augusta from 2013 to late 2015, when Baugh ran a golf school in Evans.

Being the son of two accomplished professional golfers, which one impacted his game the most?

“I'd say probably my mom,” he said. “I spent a little more time playing with her growing up. But they've both helped a lot. Like at a younger age, as a junior, I played more with my mom and we kind of hit it similar distances. It's kind of like a learned a little bit more from her because of that.”

1939 ANNIVERSARY: Ralph Guldahl's one major moment came 85 years ago at the Masters

1954 ANNIVERSARY: Sam Snead stays steady to win 1954 Masters in playoff after Hogan, Patton collapse

1964 ANNIVERSARY: Dave Marr's final birdie to finish runner-up sparked a dynamic career

When Eric was born in 1988, both parents were in the middle of their professional careers.

“I was always around them going to their tournaments and stuff from a young age. So I kind of saw what they did and thought that was something I wanted to do,” Eric said. “I've leaned on them for advice, whether it's golf course stuff or off-the-golf-course stuff, travel or where to play, what to do. So I've leaned on them a lot. They both have been an inspiration to me about how I kind of want to pursue this as my career.”

Eric started playing pro golf in 2009, becoming a dominant player on the minor league tours, winning 58 times.

“Anytime you win a tournament it's a good thing,” he said. “You can only beat the people you're playing against, so it feels good to win. You get a nice sense of satisfaction from it. It's something that translates, at least a little bit, on any stage.”

He never lost hope that he’d make it to the PGA Tour, especially with all his mini-tour victories.

“Yeah, I always wanted to play golf. I was pretty focused as a young person. I always wanted to do it. There was some doubt whether I was going to have any success there for a little while, but I always wanted to be a professional golfer. It's nice to be on the PGA Tour and on the biggest stage.”

He broke through in 2023, finishing in the top 30 of the Korn Ferry Tour money list in 2022.

“I played a lot of golf with guys who had success on tour, and when I would play with them at home or randomly throughout the year, I felt like my game stacked up pretty well,” Cole said. “I saw them having success, and it fueled me to think, 'If I just keep at it and doing what I'm doing, if I get the opportunity and end up getting there, I think that I can have success.'”

As a PGA Tour rookie last year, Cole had six-top five finishes, including runner-up finishes in the Honda Classic and the Zozo Championship. He was the only rookie to make it to the second round of the FedEx Cup playoff and the only rookie in the top 50 in the season-ending FedEx Cup standings.

As those high finishes piled up, his spot in the Official World Golf Ranking skyrocketed. From being ranked 384 th  at the start of 2023, he finished 39 th  at the end of the year, which is how he earned his spot in this year’s Masters.

During his time on the mini-tours, Cole became friends with Arnold Palmer through Sam Saunders, one of Palmer’s grandchildren. Saunders, who is a year older than Cole, played the PGA Tour in the 2017-18 and 2018-19 seasons. At times, Cole caddied for Saunders, even in the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill.

Through Saunders, Cole says he played at least 50 rounds of golf with Palmer at his home in Orlando, Fla. Fittingly, the rookie of the year title that Cole won last year is called the Arnold Palmer Award. Palmer, a four-time Masters champion, died in 2016.

“The most memorable thing to me was just spending time around him, hearing some of his old stories about traveling the tour back in the day and some of those stories had my dad in them, which I thought was really cool,” Cole said. “It's the little stuff like that that when I think about him and growing up kind of means the most to me.”

This muni costs $28 to play. Here's why PGA Tour pros were raving about it

I t's a tradition unlike any other, and it plays out every spring, when professional golfers gush over the pristine conditions at a storied tournament site. This year, though, the world's best players weren't going gaga over Augusta National . They were heaping praise on Memorial Park. Last week's host of the Texas Children's Houston Open could hardly be more different than the home of the Masters.

Where Augusta is private, with a boundless maintenance budget and a course that shutters throughout the summer, Memorial Park is a muni, open year-round, with green fees for locals that max out at $28. And yet to hear the rave reviews in Houston last week, you might have thought the players were referring to a certain course in Georgia.

How did Memorial Park, a bargain-priced track that logs upward of 50,000 rounds a year, manage to earn the kind of plaudits normally reserved for the game's most famously manicured venue?

Parker Henry, a longtime member of the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America , is the superintendent at Memorial Park. We asked him how he and his fellow city employees pulled it off.

A scheduling switch and an overseed

For the past three years, the tournament was held in the fall on a warm-season canvas of Bermuda grass. This year, though, the event was moved to the spring, when Bermuda is dormant. To prepare the course for elite competition, Henry and his team took a page from the Augusta National playbook and overseeded the course in the fall with cool-season rye. Overseeding is a resource-intensive and expensive process, but Henry and his team were strategic. They studied Google maps to see which areas were most in need, and, with help from the PGA Tour, they studied stats from the past three years to learn where errant shots tended to land. Only those areas and important playing corridors got overseeded. Then, to give the cool-season rye a chance to get established, Memorial Park closed down for three weeks in November.

The upside of dry weather

The past year was dry in Houston, which put additional strain on Memorial Park's turf. To protect the course during that trying period, management implemented a cart-path-only policy. "That was really a saving grace for us," Henry says. "Because it spared us a lot of the wear and tear from the 40,000 or so cart rounds we get a year."

Ramping up divot and ball-mark repair

Henry oversees a staff of 20 full-time city employees and 10 full-time contractors, a relatively large crew for a municipal course. But prepping for a tournament called for extra hands. In the months leading up to the event, with volunteers pitching in, Henry and his beefed-up maintenance team filled divots on tee boxes every day, and divots in the fairways twice a month. On the greens, meanwhile, they logged extra hours repairing pitch marks every seven to 10 days. They also top-dressed periodically with sand and seeded in areas that needed additional TLC.

Reconfiguring the tee sheet

Unlike Augusta, Memorial Park doesn't have the option of shutting down for prolonged stretches. But this year, it put some limits in place. Starting on March 1, four weeks before the competition kicked off, the course moved away from conventional tee times and instead offered a single shotgun start per day. Then, on Monday, March 18, one week before the pros arrived for practice rounds, the course shut down to public play. Not only did that give the turf a chance to recover from routine wear and tear, it also served as a safety measure, keeping the public clear of construction as tournament infrastructure was put in place.

Getting the greens up to speed

For a PGA Tour event, lightning-fast greens are pretty much required. But they aren't ideal for busy public play. For starters, tightly mown turf is more vulnerable to the wear and tear of heavy traffic. What's more, speedy putting surfaces are challenging for amateurs and can bog down the pace of play. Henry knew better than to try to get the greens ready overnight. His approach was slow and steady. "The focus was really on creating healthy turf," Henry says. With the robust putting surfaces established, Henry was able to ramp the green speeds gradually, starting about two weeks prior to the event. In that way, greens that ran roughly 10 to 10. 5 on the Stimpmeter for daily play were ready to be slicked up for tournament week, when the target speed was 12 on the Stimp.

Actions in the aftermath

In the wake of a big-time tournament event, everyone - and everything - needs a breather, turf included. The after day after this year's tournament was given over to a hasty tear-down of infrastructure, and the course was closed to public play. Tuesday was another day of respite. Regular public rounds did not resume til Wednesday. For Henry and his team, a top priority in the coming weeks is tending to the areas that took the heaviest beating during the event. "We'll start working on those high traffic areas and make sure the turf is ready to wake up as the weather warms," Henry says. Their work will also include extra care for shaded portions of the course where the turf might have been weak heading into the overseed. In the worse-worn of areas, Henry says, he and his crew might have to go so far as to lay down sod. "We just want to make sure that we get back to being fully Bermuda," Henry says. Until next fall, when the cycle of tournament prep will begin again.

All About Tiger Woods' Daughter Sam Alexis Woods

Tiger Woods’ daughter may be following in his sporty footsteps

pga tour pros from ohio

Tiger Woods is tied for most PGA wins ever , has many ESPY Awards and was awarded a Presidential Medal of Freedom, but his accomplishments pale in comparison to the pride he feels for his daughter, Sam Alexis Woods.

The professional golfer became a father for the first time when he welcomed Sam in June 2007, with ex-wife Elin Nordegren. Tiger had just finished second in the U.S. Open and immediately dove headfirst into parenthood.

“Our priorities are Sam. That’s the one priority. And you work it out from there,” he said in a press conference shortly after her birth. ”It was a dream come true for both Elin and myself."

The two-time Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year has learned a lot from becoming a parent, especially “ how to be more patient ,” as he told Jada Pinkett Smith during A Round with Tiger: Celebrity Lessons in 2021.

Though Sam was already a teen at the time, Tiger insisted that “she’s my little girl.” He added, “I don’t ever want [Sam] to leave home."

These days, Sam attends high school, plays varsity soccer and supports her dad on the green whenever she can — whether that be on the sidelines or acting as his caddie.

Here’s everything to know about Tiger Woods’ daughter, Sam Alexis Woods.

She was born in 2007

Tiger and Nordegren welcomed Sam on June 18, 2007, in Orlando, Florida.

“This is truly a special time in our lives and we look forward to introducing Sam to our family and friends over the next few weeks,” the new dad wrote on his website. “We thank everyone for their well wishes and continued respect of our privacy.”

Just days earlier, Nordegren had been hospitalized while Tiger was playing in the U.S. Open.

“It wasn’t life-threatening or anything,” he explained. “Elin said, ‘There’s nothing you can do. So go out there and just get a "W." ' Well, came close ... It was not easy, because I wanted to be there.”

Tiger came in second in the competition and then immediately rushed to be by Nordegren’s side. “That night was infinitely more rewarding than any ‘W’ ever could have been,” he added.

Sam became a big sister on Feb. 8, 2009, when her parents welcomed her little brother Charlie Axel Woods .

Sam was named after her dad

Sam's name is a nod to her dad, whose full name is Eldrick Tont "Tiger" Woods.

“My father had always called me Sam since the day I was born. He rarely ever called me Tiger,” the ESPY Award winner said in a 2007 press conference. “I would ask him, 'Why don't you ever call me Tiger?' He says, 'Well, you look more like a Sam.’ “

"We wanted to have a name that would be meaningful to either side of the family, my side or Elin's side, because she was born [the day after] Father's Day,” he continued. “It just happened to fit.”

She is one of Tiger’s biggest supporters

Sam has been by her dad's side for a long time — Tiger even handed her a golf club when she was only a few weeks old, although "she couldn't quite hold it” yet.

Fast toward, Sam was only 6 months old when she appeared at one of her dad’s competitions for the first time, and she was a fixture on the sidelines throughout her childhood — something that was extremely meaningful to her dad.

Reflecting on his own father’s health issues in 2015, Tiger expressed appreciation for his children’s support. The athlete touched on the heartfelt moment he shared with his dad after winning his first Masters in 1997 and what it meant to have his own daughter and son cheering him on.

“To now have come full circle and to have a chance to have my kids out there and be able to share that with them, it's special," he told ESPN .

“Sam, actually, she was there at the U.S. Open in 2008, but doesn't remember it,” he added. “It's nice to be able to share these things with my family, and it just means the world to me.”

Tiger was honest with Sam about his divorce

Tiger and Nordegren divorced in 2010 following the golfer's alleged extramarital affairs. The athlete has said he made sure to address his responsibility in the matter when speaking with his kids about it.

"I've taken the initiative with the kids, and told them up front, 'Guys, the reason why we're not in the same house, why we don't live under the same roof, Mommy and Daddy, is because Daddy made some mistakes,' " he told TIME magazine in 2015.

The former couple have worked well as co-parents, sharing custody of the kids and even becoming friends years after the split, an insider told PEOPLE.

“Tiger says really great things about Elin,” the source said in 2018. “He never complains about her, ever. He never says things like, ‘Oh, my ex is being unreasonable.’ On the contrary, he talks about her in glowing terms. They’re closer now than they were when they were married. The kids love them both .”

Sam honored her dad at his World Golf Hall of Fame induction

Sam was a centerpiece on one of her father’s biggest days: his World Golf Hall of Fame induction in 2022. At the event, which occurred one year after Tiger’s car accident , his teen daughter gave his introduction speech.

"We didn't know if you'd come home with two legs or not,” she said. “Now, you're not only about to be inducted into the Hall of Fame, but you're standing here on your own two feet. This is why you deserve this. You're a fighter , you've defied the odds every time.”

The experience was especially touching for the pro golfer, who posted on Instagram to share his thanks and a family photo featuring his mom and now-ex-girlfriend Erica Herman .

“I feel so honored to have been inducted into the @golfhalloffame tonight,” he captioned it. “Having Sam introduce me and my family there watching, it made it even that more special.”

Sam is also an athlete

While Sam is more than happy to join her dad at his tournaments, she’s not as interested in playing golf herself.

“They’re keen into soccer,” Tiger told Golf.com in 2018 about both of his children. “If they want to play golf, that’s great. If they don’t, that’s fine, too. As long as they have a good time playing sports.”

He went on to share that he enjoyed playing the team sport with Sam and Charlie and had “a lot of fun” being able to “pass the ball around with them.”

“I get such a big kick out of watching them compete and play,” Tiger said. “It’s so much fun to see how happy and passionate they are about soccer.”

While son Charlie has changed course and is now following in his dad’s footsteps with golf , Sam is still committed to soccer, even playing on the varsity team at her high school.

She caddied for her dad

The teen supported her dad on the green in a new way in December 2023 when she took on the job of caddie at the PNC Championship's Pro-Am .

In a video shared by the PGA tour on Instagram , she could be seen smiling and chatting while cleaning off her dad’s clubs.

“For the first time, Sam Woods is caddying for her father today ❤️,” the PGA Tour captioned the clip.

Who pga tour players want to see on the next season of 'full swing' on netflix, share this article.

HOUSTON — Last year, Netflix released “Full Swing,” a docuseries that went behind the scenes of professional golf as the PGA Tour battled with the challenge posed by LIV Golf. Last month, the second season was released , and some new stars were born while others grew their stardom.

With the success of the first two seasons, Netflix has already started filming for a third season.

The show has done a good job of showcasing some PGA Tour players, like Joel Dahmen and his caddie Geno Bonnalie, while also giving a behind-the-curtain look at what day-to-day life is like during tournament week and what challenges Tour players face.

That got us thinking: who do players want to see get featured in future seasons, or who deserved to have their story told?

At the Texas Children’s Houston Open, we asked a handful of players who they wanted to see. Here’s what they said:

“Max (Homa) is the first guy who comes to mind. Just with everything he has gone through from the lows to now the highs, and he’s one of the most popular guys out here.

“Following someone on the Korn Ferry Tour or college would be iffy because I understand the show has to appeal to a wide audience, and that’s why a lot of times the stars are shown so much. And I don’t know if the audience, outside of the hardcore golf fans, can get behind someone who isn’t that well know yet or proven.

“I’d also like to see someone who struggled and doesn’t finish top 15 or 20. How about someone who is struggling to make a cut and keep their card and all of the stress that goes into that?”

Dahmen : “I think there’s a lot of guys. Everyone has their own story, right? It’s hard. Sometimes people don’t do a very good job of telling it.”

Bonnalie : “Grayson Murray is probably one that we’re going to see, and he’s a good guy.”

Dahmen : “Grayson would be a great guy for it. He has battled some issues and came back to win.”

Bonnalie : “Guys who’ve had tough roads and unique jobs on the way, like Jake Knapp. Seems like a great guy. We need more stuff that they’re not going to ever show.”

Dahmen : “What about a guy like (David) Lipsky and all of his world travels? What if we actually got a real look at a weekend inside LIV?”

Bonnalie : “And the travel and all that jazz.”

“Anybody that would open up and let them in and give them access to everything they’ve been through. Like Joel said, it just depends on if you’re willing to tell your story, how it’s portrayed.”

“I’d love to tell my story. I think I would be great for it.

“Max (Homa) would also be a good one. He’s also got a great story. Even someone like Aaron Baddeley would be good, with all of his kids and his career.”

Wyndham Clark

“I still haven’t watched it. I feel uncomfortable watching myself on TV, I don’t like hearing myself talk. And I also lived it, so I don’t know, I’ve just always kind of been always been weird watching myself. So I haven’t watched it, but I’ve heard some good feedback from friends and family and they really liked it.”

“I think there’s a bunch of up-and-coming good players that are coming out that I think is just great to showcase how college players and guys coming off the Korn Ferry Tour can come up to the big leagues and win and have a lot of success right away. So I would love to see some of those guys get their time on Netflix. And even someone, just came to mind, like Peter Malnati. He’s been out here for a long time and has been grinding and trying to keep his card every year and just broke out and won last week. Stories like that that I think helps grow our Tour, that it’s not just top players that people get to see, but we’re very deep out here. I think that would be great for golf.”

“I haven’t watched, but I think a guy like Peter Malnati would be good. There’s a lot of good guys out here on Tour, and he’s one of them. He wins for the first time in a while, and a lot of people get to find out how good of a guy he is. There’s a lot of guys like that out here, but Peter is a great example.”

The Northern Ohio PGA

First thing to say when looking at the difference between a Tour Pro and a PGA Pro is that the two are not mutually exclusive – a PGA Pro may often play as a Tour Pro, competing in the same events, and many Tour Pros are also PGA Pros.

But at both ends of the spectrum of what golf professionals do for work, there are clear differences in how your average Tour Pro and regular PGA Pro earn their coin.

Here, in a nutshell, is how the Tour Pro and PGA Pro ply their trades - 

Rory McIlroy

Rory McIlroy is one of the most famous and successful Tour Pros, who competes in all the Majors and biggest PGA Tour events

A Tour Pro or touring professional golfer predominantly aims to make their living by enjoying a successful competitive playing career. They focus their energies on getting everything they can from their games. The modern tour pro is an athlete who will spend every day trying to improve – practising golf, working on fitness , nutrition, mental strength … Exploring all avenues to give them a competitive edge.

Whether they compete at the very highest level – The PGA Tour, The DP World Tour, LPGA or LET circuits, or even the new LIV Golf tour – or at a lower level on a feeder tour or domestic circuit, their principal focus is winning golf tournaments, or at least finishing as high up on the final leaderboard as possible to earn prize money and status to get their name noticed by potential sponsors.

Across the globe there are thousands of Tour Pros, plying their trade on numerous circuits in each corner of the golfing globe. Those on the lower rungs of the ladder may be trying to climb upwards through the rankings to reach the loftier heights of the professional game – to play in those televised tournaments we see each week on the main pro Tours and even to make it into the Majors.

There will also be Tour Pros who play at a lower level and are content to stay at that level – In some cases being a bigger fish in a smaller pond can be more lucrative. The cost of playing on one of the main, international, professional tours is extremely high due to travel fees, hotels, food, caddies, insurance etc. and, if a Tour Pro doesn’t enjoy a level of success, they can easily spend more than they earn.

Playing a circuit closer to home with lower prize funds is a more sensible financial set-up for many, given the far lower expenses incurred.

Tour Pros will supplement the prize money they earn with sponsorship money from golf manufacturers and businesses outside of golf. They will have a certain number of responsibilities each year through their sponsorship deals – to meet clients of their sponsor, to deal with the media, to use the right equipment and wear the correct badges/labels on the golf course.

At the highest level, these sponsorship deals will often earn the top players more money than they pick up in prizes. At a lower level, the sponsorship deals are often crucial to keep the journeying professional afloat.

PGA Professional

PGA Draft

A PGA Professional is a member of the Professional Golfers’ Association. To become a member of the association in this country one must undertake a three-year training programme which since 2003 has been a nationally recognised qualification – a Foundation Degree in Professional Golf.

You also have to obtain an Association of Sports Qualification’s Level 2 certificate in coaching golf, as well as attaining a first aid certificate, undergoing a background check and to have competed at a professional level to an agreed standard – it’s a highly regarded qualification and one that opens doors .

The options for a PGA Professional are wide ranging. These days, there’s a great deal more to choose from than the inaccurate old cliché of simply, “selling Mars bars in a shop.” PGA Professionals work in coaching, managing, retail, administration and manufacturing. From designing courses to coaching an elite player – there are hugely exciting options to explore.

There is also the opportunity to work all over the world – The PGA in the UK has 8,000 members, with 1,500 of these working internationally in more than 80 countries. The PGA of America has tens of thousands of members, with 20 of its PGA Pros earning a spot into the PGA Championship Major each year - that's how Michael Block skyrocketed to fame after his incredible T15th finish in 2023.

The modern PGA Professional working at a golf club or facility has a raft of responsibilities that far exceed those of the traditional “club pro.” The role has transformed from that of a shopkeeper doing the odd repair job and giving an occasional lesson to one that’s far more dynamic with PGA Pros involved in at least some, if not all areas of golf club management as well as coaching, PR, finance, retail and sharing general golfing expertise in equipment, technique, Rules and golf technology.

Once a member of the PGA, it’s possible to progress up the ranks – from PGA Professional to PGA Advanced Professional, PGA Fellow Professional, PGA Advanced Fellow Professional, then, at the top of the pile – PGA Master Professional.

But, of course, most PGA Professionals are in the business because they love golf and there are many opportunities for PGA Pros to play the game competitively – there are PGA events in every region and, as qualified pros, they are able to enter qualifying for larger events and even tours. Ryder Cup players like Paul Lawrie and Ian Poulter began their careers as PGA assistant professionals and made their way into Tour golf.

The fundamental difference between a Tour Pro and a PGA Pro is a Tour Pro predominantly makes their living from playing the game, whereas a PGA Pro makes their living by using their knowledge of golf to instruct, manage, sell, make or promote within or around the game.

Fergus is Golf Monthly's resident expert on the history of the game and has written extensively on that subject. He is a golf obsessive and 1-handicapper. Growing up in the North East of Scotland, golf runs through his veins and his passion for the sport was bolstered during his time at St Andrews university studying history. He went on to earn a post graduate diploma from the London School of Journalism. Fergus has worked for Golf Monthly since 2004 and has written two books on the game; "Great Golf Debates" together with Jezz Ellwood of Golf Monthly and the history section of "The Ultimate Golf Book" together with Neil Tappin , also of Golf Monthly. 

Fergus once shanked a ball from just over Granny Clark's Wynd on the 18th of the Old Course that struck the St Andrews Golf Club and rebounded into the Valley of Sin, from where he saved par. Who says there's no golfing god?

What if every city had its own professional golf team? A definitive power ranking of U.S. golf hubs

Dylan Dethier

The PGA Tour’s U.S.-based pros have clustered together at an astonishing rate. Just five communities are home to  more than half  of the 228 Tour pros living stateside, leading to fascinating social dynamics when neighbors take on neighbors at events around the country.

So what if we took things to the next level? What if professional golf wasn’t comprised of individuals but region-based teams, and locals could root collectively for their pros-in-residence?

Here’s a look — scouting reports included — at the nation’s would-be top 11 teams, ranked from underdog to powerhouse.

Ground rules: Each player must have PGA Tour status and officially reside (based on Tour data) within 25 miles of his team’s city. Five players per team.

California is the birthplace of 24 current Tour members (more than any other state) but is home to just 11 pros, and it’s not the bad weather that’s scaring people away. One major factor? The top state income tax in the country. Heck, we had to stretch our geographic rules just to put a full SoCal squad together.

TEAM IRVINE

35. Brendan Steele

131. Luke List

187. Aaron Wise

345. Cameron Tringale

1280. John Merrick

Avg. World Ranking: 395.6

Snubs: None, except geographically: Would-be team leaders Phil Mickelson and Xander Schauffele both live outside the required radius.

pga tour pros from ohio

10. AUGUSTA, GA. (5 pros in residence)

Bad news for this team: local pros aren’t given special invitations to the Masters.

31. Kevin Kisner

76. Wesley Bryan

135. Scott Brown

270 Vaughn Taylor

456. Matt Atkins

Avg. World Ranking: 193.6

Snubs: Augusta’s ringer-in-residence, (approx.) 200-time club champion Jeff Knox .

Scouting report: Vaughn Taylor is on the move — he was outside the top 300 entering this year! That’s about it for good news here.

9. HOUSTON, TEXAS: (6 pros in residence)

The biggest city on this list is an underdog nonetheless.

24. Patrick Reed

45. Jhonny Vegas

173. Chris Stroud

332. Michael Kim

367. Shawn Stefani

Avg. World Ranking: 188.2

Snubs: One particularly dark horse would be Jim Nantz, who played college golf at U of H and has been spending many nights practicing on his backyard par 3 .

Scouting report:  More like Who-ston, amiright? We don’t want to sell any team captained by Patrick Reed short, but Stroud, Kim, and Stefani will have their work cut out for them.

8. CHARLOTTE, N.C. (7 pros in residence)

The Queen City is a heck of a golf town that’s still searching for its alpha pro.

46. Webb Simpson

127. J. Kokrak

160. Harold Varner

169. Mackenzie Hughes

344. Seamus Power

Avg. World Ranking: 169.2

Snubs:  Carolina native and world No. 1,937 Steph Curry may be making a run for this team before long.

Scouting report: We like their chances at Quail Hollow. Besides that? Meh.

7. PONTE VEDRA BEACH, FLA.  (12 pros in residence)

Ponte Vedra is home to Tour headquarters, TPC Sawgrass, and a decent crop of pros. Several have settled there from abroad, like Russell Knox (Scotland) David Lingmerth (Sweden) or Vijay Singh (Fiji), favoring the quieter atmosphere to the bustle of nearby Jacksonville.

58. Cameron Smith

85. Russell Knox

75. Billy Horschel

149. David  Lingmerth

​206. Sam Saunders

Average World Ranking:  114.6

Snubs:  We’ve set up this competition just a few years late for Vijay Singh, who still miraculously lives down the road from the organization he’s been  suing for years .

Scouting report:  An international medley that’s solid, if unspectacular, from top to bottom.

pga tour pros from ohio

No state income tax… Vegas, baby! This is an older crowd, but solid.

23. Charley Hoffman

70. Ryan Moore

95. Kevin Na

115. Scott Piercy

216. Alex Cejka

Avg. World Ranking: 103.8

Snubs:  Anthony Kim reportedly spends a fair amount of time in Vegas, and would certainly up the intrigue coming from this fivesome.

Scouting report: This is my underdog team. Stoic group of veterans with well-honed poker faces? Sign me up.

pga tour pros from ohio

3. Jordan Spieth

48. Si Woo Kim

91. Sung Kang

89. Bryson DeChambeau

138. Whee Kim

Average World Ranking: 73.8

Snubs: I’ll give you a hint:   He’s about to peg it in his first Tour event , and used to be the local team’s starting quarterback…

Scouting report: Two men from Texas and three more from South Korea comprise a streaky squad that could get hot at the right time. Si Woo Kim is the ultimate X-factor: if he brings the same game that got him a strong W at last year’s Players, you never know.

Nineteen pros seems like a lot, but consider that in the pre-NetJets era, when Tour pros cared about commercial flights, Orlando was the hub for all things pro golf. Tiger lived there until 2011, fergodsakes! Now, the gated communities in the Disney burbs are home to a slightly aging but still talented demo.

12. Henrik Stenson

26. Gary Woodland

60. Ian Poulter

63. Charles Howell III

117. Bubba Watson

Avg. World Ranking: 55.6

Snubs:  If you haven’t seen the video evidence, Goofy is a hell of a player  and we hear he lives nearby.

Scouting report: An accomplished group, but getting grey! They’ve been on the scene since Orlando was cool. With Woodland getting hot at the right time, can the rest of the group play like it’s 2013?

pga tour pros from ohio

The Sea Island crowd is headlined by a low-key group of American Tour vets. These island lifers don’t seem so different from the Ponte Vedra Beach crew, who live comparable lifestyles just 100 miles south.

18. Matt Kuchar

21. Brian Harman

55. Zach Johnson

56. Patton Kizzire

99. Hudson Swafford

Avg. World Ranking:  49.8

Snubs:  Davis Love is the mayor around these parts and would be a reliable fill-in.

Scouting Report: Crafty, under-the radar bunch. Does anyone get less credit than the top three members of the Sea Island team?

An unofficial entrant, just inserted to point out the ridiculous depth of the Jupiter crew.

16. Alex Noren

32. Daniel Berger

39. Patrick Cantlay

59. Peter Uihlein

64. Keegan Bradley

Avg. World Ranking:  42

Snubs:  Uhh, Tiger Woods comes to mind — not to mention our current president. Captain’s picks?

Scouting Report:  B Team?! This squad is stacked.

pga tour pros from ohio

Scottsdale, home of the fun fratty wreckage accompanying the Waste Management Phoenix Open, is an upscale suburb of Phoenix and boasts some high-caliber talent. A couple locals were in contention at this year’s Waste Management, including Reavie and Rahm.

2. Jon Rahm

17. Paul Casey

19. P. Perez

43. C. Reavie

61. J. Hahn

Avg. World Ranking: 28.4

Snubs: Kevin Streelman’s gettin’ hot!

Scouting report: Judging by the last few weeks, Chez Reavie is the hottest player in the game. Can Jon Rahm keep his engine from overheating and take Arizona to the top? We’re dying to find out.

At any given time, five of the world’s top 10 could meet for dinner in about 15 minutes.

1. Dustin Johnson

4. Justin Thomas

7. Rickie Fowler

9. Brooks Koepka

10. Rory McIlroy

Avg. World Ranking: 6.2

Snubs:  Nobody should feel bad being left off this team.

Scouting report: What’s left to say? In a match pitting Jupiter vs. the world, Jupiter would be favored.

Now let’s make this happen.

Nelly Korda's win in Las Vegas marks four in a row.
