GPOYW: 2000 United States Golf Junior Boys and Girls Amateur Edition.

This is hands-down my favorite golf-related photo and one of the best memories from the good ol’ days!  All of us originally hail from Washington State. The pic was taken at the Junior-Am Banquet held at the Nike Headquarters in Portland, Oregon. The actual tournament was at Pumpkin Ridge GC.

So, where are we now?

From left to right, we’ve got Ryan Moore, PGA Tour Player, Me, amateur FLOG-ger, Lauren Ressler, Newberry College Women’s Golf Coach, Andres Gonzales, Nationwide/Canadian Tour Player, Michael Putnam, PGA/Nationwide Tour Player, and David Fern, IPFW Men’s Golf Coach.

They are way cooler than me. It’s kind of like, if you used to play high school ball with Kobe Bryant or little league with Derek Jeter, would they know you now?!
