Harrison Frazar turned professional in 1996, on the heels of a solid collegiate and amateur record.

 

He attended Highland Park High School, where he won two state golf championships and was a three time all-Texas selection.

 

Playing for the University of Texas Longhorns, Frazar was a three time honorable mention All-American. In his junior year, he shot a 65 and led Texas to a 2nd place team finish at the NCAA Championship.

 

Frazar had at least 4 Top-10 finishes on the PGA TOUR from 2001-2005. Frazar ended his 2005 season with 3 Top-10 finishes in his last 3 starts, including back to back third place finishes. 

On December 6th, 2008, Frazar became one of the few golfers in the history of the game to shoot a 59 during a professional golf tournament. This amazing feat happened during the Final Stage of Qualifying School, at the Nicklaus Tournament course at PGA West in La Quinta, CA. Frazar went on to take medalist honors, winning by a total of eight shots and finishing the week off on -32.

 

In 2011 with just two starts left on his medical exemption, Frazar won his maiden PGA TOUR title at the FedEx St. Jude Classic in a playoff over Swede Robert Karlsson. Frazar had a one stroke lead entering the final hole on Sunday but unfortunately made bogey which forced the play-off. Frazar won on the third extra hole when Karlsson missed a 12 foot putt for par. This was Harrison’s first win in 355 starts on Tour and came at a time when he needed it most.

 

Frazar’s career high world ranking was 82nd, after finishing T2nd place at the 2012 Sony Open in Hawaii. Over his career, Frazar has finished in the Top-10 37 times on the PGA TOUR.
