2007 Tennessee Golf Hall of Fame Inductee

BOBBY GREENWOOD

Bobby Greenwood was introduced to golf at Cookeville Country Club at the age of twelve. During the 1960s there was no better amateur player in Tennessee. Greenwood won the 1966 State Amateur and the 1968 State Open, becoming the third of eight golfers in history to accomplish this double. Greenwood became one of seven players to win the Sunnehanna Amateur multiple times, winning the event in 1965 and 1968, setting the course record in 1965 with a 72-hole record of 269 and course record 63 in the second round. Golf Magazine ranked him among the nation’s Top 10 amateurs twice. A three-time NCAA All-American at North Texas State University, Bobby was selected to play on the 10-man Texas Cup Team in 1964. Bobby was inducted into the UNT Hall of Fame in 2002.  He qualified for the PGA Tour in 1969, tying Johnny Miller for 3rd place, and played the PGA Tour for seven years, from 1969 through 1975. He made seventy-two cuts, six Top 10 finishes, and fifteen Top 25s while also winning the 1970 Rhode Island Open while on the Tour. After leaving the Tour, Greenwood served as director of golf at Sawgrass Country Club in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida and was the Host pro for two Tournament Players Championships at Sawgrass; a design coordinator for Golden Bear International; president of his own golf course architectural firm and the designer of the Dorchester course at Fairfield Glade; editor-in-chief of one of Tennessee’s first golf publications, “The Nifty Knicker”, and a partner in a golf school operation and a discount golf shop in Nashville. Greenwood won over 150 tournaments in his career.
