Andrew Putnam and his brother Michael have both played on the PGA Tour. Another brother, Joel, caddies for Putman. Putman started his success at golf during his college years, playing for Pepperdine University from 2008 to 2011. He was a three time All-American.
After turning professional in 2011, Putman started his career on the eGolf tour, then the Web.com Tour. In 2013, he finished forty ninth on the money list for that season. Putman debuted on the PGA Tour at the 2014 Shell Houston Open, where his brother Michael also played; he did not make the cut. Putnam’s eighth place finish in the 2013 Web.com Tour Finals lead to him earning his PGA Tour card for the following season.
Putnam has said that this biggest thrills from playing golf have come from playing in the 2010 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach and winning his first ever Web.com event, the WNB Midland Classic. Of all the courses he has played in his career so far, Putnam includes Cypress Point, Bandon dunes, and Pebble Beach in his favorites.
Away from playing, Putman and his brother Michael, along with Travis Teeple, jointly own a golf towel company.
As of the end of 2014 Putman had appeared twice on the PGA Tour. He has not achieved any PGA Tour wins. Although he had not amassed any prize money up to this point, he has begun to add to his PGA Tour winnings in 2015.
