Phil BundyAt midlife, I am hoping to bring together a unique mix of talent, skills, and life experiences to achieve my mission of playing on the PGA Tour and documenting my journey.

I started playing golf at age 9, becoming a champion junior golfer and competing in tournaments across the country. After starting my high school golf team, I won the 1984 Maryland State High School Championship by 10 strokes — a record margin of victory.

At Wake Forest University, I practiced under legendary golf coach Jesse Haddock and was a member of the 1986 NCAA Championship Team that included current PGA Tour players Billy Andrade and Len Mattiace.

After college, instead of trying to qualify for the PGA Tour like my teammates, I earned an MBA at the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland, where I started a golf marketing and management business at the Dingman Center for Entrepreneurship. Over the past 20 years, I have has played many roles in the golf industry, including golf instructor, course manager, tournament director, agent, manufacturer, distributor, marketer, and publicist.

Born in Baltimore, Maryland, I now live outside of Washington, D.C. with my wife, Donna, and son, Charlie.
