Seattle’s Rick Fehr enjoyed a stellar amateur career. He won the 1982 Western Amateur and was the low amateur at the 1984 Masters and U.S. Open. He also was a two-time All-American at Brigham Young University.
In late 1984, Fehr turned pro and became a member of the@ PGA in 1985 based on his performance at the 1985 U.S. Open at Oakland Hills. Fehr opened the tournament with rounds of 69 and 67 and played in the second-to-last group on both Saturday and Sunday. Fehr ended up tied for 9th place, only 4 shots out of a playoff, and earned his PGA Tour card for the balance of the season.
Fehr had a solid, if short, PGA career. He recorded 41 top ten finishes. He won twice on tour (1986 B.C. Open and 1994 Walt Disney World Oldsmobile Classic). He also finished runner-up nine times.
Fehr’s career went into a slow decline and by the mid-2000’s, he was ready to try something else. He went to work for a sports management company and eventually left to form his business representing golfers. Fehr’s first client was his longtime friend Loren Roberts.
In 2012, Fehr returned to competitive golf. He decided to give the Champions Tour a try after turning 50. Fehr played 30 Champions Tour events between 2012 and 2014, recording 3 top twenty-five finishes.
