Nice Move

First and foremost, congratulations to Adam Scott for capturing the most heralded trophy in golf yesterday, and thank him for the astounding and compelling fashion he did it in with that playoff victory.

Scott’s triumph at Augusta was also a victory for the brothers of Sigma Chi, where he was an active during his time honing his golf game at UNLV. It also inspired me to compile a list of other golf greats who have been fraternity men throughout the years.

The list is made up of both old-timers from as early as the 1930s, and young guns currently on one of a few tours: PGA, Champions, Nationwide and Seniors.

Quite impressive, huh?

It’s really interesting to see how many more old-time legends had fraternal roots as compared to current players in this day and age. Obviously this is a result of stricter NCAA regulations all around, but who knows, maybe a future Masters champion is starting his quest for the green jacket in a house right around the corner…
