Born in the oil country of Baytown, Texas, Shawn Stefani played collegiate golf at Lamar University and set his sights on professional golf career after graduating in 2005.
Stefani knocked around on mini-tours until 2012 when he qualified for the Web.com Tour. Stefani won two Web.com events in 2012 – the Midwest Classic and the Miccosukee Championship. The two victories propelled him to a sixth place finish on the Web.com money list, securing Stefani his PGA Tour card for the 2013 season.
Stefani has played on the PGA Tour since 2013, recording 7 top-10’s through the end of July 2015. 2015 has been Stefani’s best season tour. He has made the cut in 18 of his 22 starts and earned nearly $1.7 million while standing 36th in the FedEx Cutp ratings.
Stefani tied for 6th at the Sony Open in Hawaii in January. His best recent finish was a tie for 9th at the Wells Fargo Championship in mid-May.
At the 2013 U.S. Open, held at Merion, Stefani recorded a hole-in-one on the 17th hole during the final round. 18 United States Golf Association events had been held at Merion without a single ace before Stefani’s shot.
Off the golf course, Stefani enjoys deer hunting, listening to country music and watching the Houston Texas and Houston Astros.
