Two time US Open champion Andy North had no choice but to hit the links. In the seventh grade, the professional golfer wasn't particularly interested in the sport and instead opted to play football and basketball. When a knee injury forced him to give up contact sports, he turned to golf as an alternative and the game quickly became a passion and ultimately his life's work.
At the University of Florida, his play landed him All-American honors three times. After racking up amateur victories, the Wisconsin native turned professional in 1972 and immediately embarked on a successful PGA career. He won the 1978 and 1985 U.S. Open Championships, one of only 16 men to win the event more than once. He also played on the 1978 World Cup and 1985 Ryder Cup teams and became one of the sport's top career earners.
Now a successful golf commentator for ABC & ESPN, Andy continues to prove himself to be one of golf's best on the Senior PGA Tour.
