    A PGA Tour veteran, Andrew Magee has been playing on the Tour for over twenty years. Although he was born in the French capital Paris, Magee is American. His father is an American oil man, who was working in France at the time of his son’s birth. Magee grew up in Dallas and eventually attended the University of Oklahoma where he achieved All-American honors three times. Having turned professional in 1984, Magee joined the PGA Pro Tour the following year.

    Magee waited four years for his first PGA Tour win, which came at the Pensacola Open in 1988. He went on to achieve two more Tour wins in 1991. Magee’s most recent PGA Tour win happened in 1994 at the Northern Telecom Open.

    In addition to his Tour wins Magee has the distinction of having hit a hole-in-one on a par 4 hole at a PGA Tour event, which he did on the 17th hole at the Phoenix Open in 2001. Magee suffered an interruption to his Tour career in 2006 when he was hospitalized to undergo surgery to remove a cancerous tumor from his kidney. Thankfully the surgery was successful, and Magee was soon back playing on the tour.

    Now aged 50, and living in Paradise Valley, Arizona, Magee plays a limited number of tournaments on the Champions Tour. He has put his golf expertise to good use in the media, over the years, having worked on the Golf Channel and a host of The Big Break.

    It seems that sporting expertise runs in the family as Magee’s son Campbell has played competitive lacrosse, as well as caddying for his father during the 2006 season.

    As of the end of 2014 Magee had played 606 events on the PGA Tour. He has experienced a total of four wins on the Tour, and has amassed total prize money of $8,512,753.
