Breakdown of 2018-19 PGA Tour winners by college


Every professional golfer had to start somewhere.

The likes of Rory McIlroy and Kevin Na, players who have won on the PGA Tour this year but didn’t go to college and turned professional as teenagers, are few and far between. Most honed their skills in college, and this season on Tour, a few schools stand out among the rest.

After Matthew Wolff’s first PGA Tour victory at the 3M Open, Oklahoma State tied Arizona State with four winners this season. Five other schools follow with two winners.

Here is a breakdown of the victories on the 2018-19 PGA Tour schedule and the college that the winning golfer went to.

2: Florida State … Georgia … Georgia Tech (both Matt Kuchar) … San Diego State (both Xander Schauffele) … Texas A&M (including Zurich team event).

1: Arizona … Cal … Coastal Carolina … Duke … Kansas … Kentucky … Kent State … SMU … Stanford … UAB … UCLA … USC … Washington … Texas.
