Former Western athlete Garnett trying to make PGA Tour

Garnett, who is now on the Adam’s Golf Pro Tour, will look to join the PGA Tour in a few years Golf is a mind game.  Brice Garnett’s mind is focused --  focused on making it to the PGA Tour. After a decorated college career, the two-time Missouri Western Athlete of the Year is now looking to make a name for himself in professional golf.  Garnett is currently playing on the Adams Golf Pro Tour Series.  The tour serves as the training ground for some of the PGA Tour’s best and gives pros such as Garnett the chance to sharpen their skills while getting ready for a lifetime on the PGA Tour. “It has been a lot of fun,” Garnett said.  “I have really improved since college.” Coming from an NCAA Division II athletic program like Western, it is hard to make it in the world of profes­sional athletics.  Golf is different from other sports though.  Golf is a sport in which a player must earn their way to a championship, and their ranking is in their own hands.  Golf doesn’t have a draft, and the size of the college you are from really doesn’t matter.  Everyone has a shot to make it on the PGA Tour. The former Missouri Western student athlete Garnett is proving this.  His former teammate Aaron Lisenbee believes he can obtain his dream. “He’ll go about as far as he wants to take himself,” Lisenbee said.  “Brice is very cool, calm and collective golfer.” Garnett’s meticulous game is like that of a chemist.  He prepares for everything and is a perfectionist in his work.  He breaks every little thing down and maybe more important than anything, never underestimates the importance of practice.  So what does this equation yield?  Success for Garnett as well as everyone around him. “He was about as good teammate as you can get,” said Lisenbee. Missouri Western men’s golf coach Jim Perry knows all about Garnett’s game first hand as well. “He’s probably the most dominant player we’ve ever had in our league,” Coach Perry said.  “He’s a solid and consistent player, plus he’s a great kid.” While here as a Griffon, Garnett had 12 collegiate tournament victo­ries (seven in a row), was a three-time conference champ, a two-time All-American and an Academic All-American as well.  He has already started his list of awards as a pro, being named the Adams Tight Lies Tour Rookie of the Year in 2006. Being from a smaller college isn’t necessarily a handicap for Garnett, but it puts him at somewhat of a dis­advantage. He doesn’t have the expo­sure that golfers from bigger school would get.  Nonetheless, players from Division II and junior colleges have won both the U.S. Open and PGA Championships along with countless PGA Tour titles.  Garnett looks to join the list of small college golfers to make it big time.  He is off to a good start. “Brice has got the game to do it, and I think he’ll probably make it,” Perry said.  “I know I’m not going to caddy for him though.” Garnett’s highest finish came at the Community Bank Golf Classic last year where he finished in second place.  He has had three top five fin­ishes this year and is currently the featured athlete on the tours website (  Garnett is currently sitting in tenth place on the money list and fourth in Player of the Year voting on the Adams Golf Pro Tour. He has been more consistent this year and hasn’t been cut from a single tournament.  As his scores get lower, Brice Garnett seems to be a player on the rise on the tour this year.  Hopefully he can rise all the way to the PGA Tour. “My goal is to get better every year,” Garnett said.  “Hopefully next year I can move up another level and maybe play on the PGA Tour.” This would shine a positive light on Missouri Western athletics. We all hope that Garnett’s dream comes true.
