Corey Pavin Biography

Corey Pavin was born in Oxnard, California on 16th November 1959. He attended UCLA and turned professional in 1982.

In 1983 Pavin quickly established himself in the sport, with three international victories. He had his first PGA Tour victory at the 1984 Houston Coca-Cola Open. He managed to win at least one event on either the PGA Tour or the international tour nearly every year for the next decade, and topped the PGA's money list in 1991, when he was the last man to achieve this without winning at least one million dollars in prize money.

Pavin's success culminated in his only major victory, the 1995 U.S. Open. Rather than marking a move to a new level of achievement, however, this was soon followed by a long slide down the world rankings from a high ranking of 5th. After Pavin won the Colonial in 1996, he did not win another PGA tournament for ten years. His 89th place finish on the 2004 money list was the first time he had made the top one hundred since 1998. Pavin finally won his fifteenth career title in 2006 at the U.S. Bank Championship in Milwaukee, ending a streak of 242 consecutive tournaments without a win.

Pavin played on three Ryder Cup teams: 1991, 1993, and 1995.

Pavin spent over 150 weeks in the top-10 of the Official World Golf Rankings between 1986 and 1997.

In July 2006, during the first round of what would become his fifteenth tour title, Pavin broke the record for the fewest number of strokes needed to complete nine holes at a PGA Tour event, with an 8-under par score of 26. The previous record of 27 strokes was held by Mike Souchak, Andy North, Billy Mayfair and Robert Gamez, with Mayfair and Gamez' scores being 9-under par. His 36-hole total of 125 also tied the record for fewest shots taken in the first 36 holes of a PGA Tour event held by Tom Lehman, Mark Calcavecchia, and Tiger Woods.

In December 2008, Pavin was named captain for the 2010 Ryder Cup U.S. team by the PGA of America. In October 2010, the U.S. Ryder Cup team lost 13½ to 14½, against the European side.

Pavin began playing on the Champions Tour in 2010. In June 2010, he lost in a sudden death playoff to Bubba Watson at the Travelers Championship on the PGA Tour.
