Sr. U.S. Open Champion Comes to Winnfield

Sr. U.S. Open Champion Comes to Winnfield

There are many things that can be used by successful men to help others. Using ones status and background as a professional athlete to mentor and reach out to young people is possibly the greatest of all. Brad Bryant, Sr. US Open golf champion has used his status as a legendary golfer to touch the lives of young people and maybe give a few golf pointers along the way.

Brad Bryant was born in Amarillo, Texas and in later years his family moved to Alamogordo, New Mexico. He once described himself as “kind of a good ol’boy.” That seems quite humble for a man who joined the PGA Tour Champions in 2005, has four PGA Tour Champions victories, and many other high points in his professional golfing career. He has used that career to help and contribute to families. For example, in 2012 he donated 10% of his earnings on the Champions Tour to the United Hearts Fund, which helps families cover the costs of adopting children.
