    My earliest memory of golf is telling my father that my mother bought a nice leather staff bag for his Christmas present, five minutes after my mother bought and told me not to say anything. Talk about a spoiler! Of course I was like 5 years old at the time, but 30 years later, he still has that bag.
    I've always loved golf, everything about it. I worked on a grounds crew for a few years when I was a kid just to be around it more. I even had my own golf cart until both of the font wheels fell off at the same time... but somewhere the game got away from me, and I didn't play for quite a while, but I picked it up again after I got married and it's all I think about anymore. I've been playing pretty steadily now(seasons permitting) for 15 years and I've gone from shooting over 100 consistently to a 9 index. Not the greatest, but for a weekend warrior and having never taken a lesson, I'm happy and still think I will improve. I've collected a lot of friends through golf, most of them through collecting Scotty Cameron putters. That is the best thing I have gotten out of golf, a wealth of good friends...Thanks Dad

    Jay Haas comes from a distinguished family of professional golfers. He is the nephew of 1968 Masters winner Bob Goalby, his second son Bill currently competes on the PGA Tour, as did his oldest son Jay Jr., brother Jerry Haas, and brother-in-law Dillard Pruitt, now a Rules Official on the Champions Tour. Raised in Illinois, Jay attended Wake Forest University where he was part of, what Golf World magazine has called, "the greatest college team of all time." His PGA Tour career spanned more than 25 years and featured nine victories and selections to three Ryder Cup teams. He has distinguished himself as one of the greatest players ever on the Champions Tour where he's amassed more than a dozen wins, including multiple major championships. 

    Jay is recognized as one of the true gentlemen and ambassadors for the game of golf. He received the 2004 Payne Stewart Award for upholding the traditions of golf and was honored in 2005 with the Jim Murray Award from the Golf Writers Association of America. He was also named the 2005 recipient of the Bob Jones Award, the United States Golf Association's highest honor for distinguished sportsmanship. Haas was also inducted into the South Carolina Sports Hall of Fame and is a member of the Wake Forest Hall of Fame.

    Jay Haas is recognized as an icon not only his distinguished record on the golf course, but for his lifetime of service as a role model for players at all levels.

    Hunter Mahan

    Hunter Mahan often displays the cool, laid-back demeanor and fashion-forward style of a California kid yet also possesses the fiery intensity he learned growing up playing the game in Texas. Finding a balance between the two has led to success at every level of competitive golf and, combined with his signature look - blond hair, sunglasses and classy, colorful shield-tip FJ golf shoes - has helped him become an ICON in the game.

    Hunter was born in Orange, CA but spent most of his life in Texas. It was here that his golf career really took hold as he won the 1999 Texas 5A High School Championship and the 1999 USGA Junior Championship. He entered college as the top ranked junior golfer in the country and enjoyed immediate and continued success at USC and Oklahoma State. With a career's worth of victories, accolades and awards, including a 28th place finish at his first Masters, Hunter turned pro following his junior year and had little trouble earning and keeping his Tour card. Mahan wasn't always the picture of Zen, however, and it wasn't until a heated discussion with his sports psychologist at the U.S. Open Qualifier in 2006 that Mahan's career began to really blossom. No longer focusing on poor shots and missed opportunities, Mahan's new positive outlook led him to even greater success, including his first PGA Tour victory and a stellar showing in his first Ryder Cup where he led the United States team in scoring and was one of only two players to play in all five matches. With his signature style and cool demeanor, Hunter Mahan will surely be a golf ICON for years to come.
