As a 19-year-old playing his first United States Golf Association Event, Chez Reavie won the 2001 Public Links title.
The victory earned Reavie, then an Arizona State University sophomore, a spot in the 2002 Masters. And although he finished 85th, Reavie used the experience to become one of the premier NCAA and amateur golfers in the country and eventually join the PGA Tour.
Reavie earned three All-American honors (second-team in 2001, 2003, honorable mention in 2002) with the Sun Devils. As a senior in 2003-04, he earned first-team All-Pac 10 honors for the second time and finished in the top 10 in eight of his 14 tournaments.
He also qualified for the 2003 U.S. Open before turning professional in June 2004.
Hale is one of the few players in history to have won three U.S. Opens and was one of the world's leading golfers for much of the 1970s and 1980s. He has also developed a career as a golf course architect. Irwin had 20 victories on the PGA Tour beginning with the 1971 Sea Pines Heritage Classic and finishing with the 1994 MCI Heritage Golf Classic, and won prize money of just under six million dollars. His 1994 Heritage win at the age of nearly 49 made him one of the oldest winners in Tour history. He was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1992.
David has won numerous tournaments on both the PGA Tour and the Champions Tour. His first PGA Tour win came at the 1967 Colonial National Invitation. His career year was 1974, when he won three times, but his two majors, both of which were PGA Championships, came in 1970 and 1976. Stockton joined the Senior PGA Tour (now the Champions Tour) in 1991 and enjoyed continued success, topping the Senior Tour money list in 1993 and 1994. His fourteen senior titles include three senior majors, the 1992 and 1994 Senior Players Championships and the 1996 U.S. Senior Open. When he was an active PGA Tour player, Stockton had the reputation of being one of the best putters. In 2009, Stockton was credited with aiding the world's second-ranked golfer, Phil Mickelson with his putting, which helped him win the 2009 Tour Championship.
