Bob Estes

Was only 4 when his father took him to the golf course for the first time. By age 7, he was playing in junior events around his hometown of Abilene and dreaming of playing on the PGA Tour. Was also an exceptional basketball player, earning all-district honors his junior and senior year. Played golf for the University of Texas, winning the Jack Nicklaus and Fred Haskins awards as the college player of the year. After leaving Texas in 1988, he finished 1989 as the PGA Tour's Rookie of the Year (102nd on the money list), having lost a playoff at the B.C. Open to Mike Hulbert. Although he would contend many more times, his first two PGA Tour victories were wire-to-wire performances. Since joining the PGA Tour in 1989, has never finished lower than 149th on the money list and has only been out of the top-125 twice (1996 and 2008).
He strained his right wrist at the Texas Open in 2010 after unearthing a chunk of limestone with a wedge on the first hole of the tournament, and the injury bothered him the rest of the year to the point that only rest and prolotherapy treatment could help. He delayed his 2011 debut for four months and got it together to lose a playoff at the Greenbrier Classic. Despite the high finish, only finished 135th on the money list. At Q-School finished T-8th to regain his Tour card for 2012.
Has played on the PGA Tour since 1988. Had to rehab a shoulder injury in 2014 which slowed him down to only play in 2 events in 2014 and 1 event in 2016. In 2016 will have 23 starts on a major medical extension. Has played a total of 653 PGA Tour events from 1988 to present, he has won four times, the last coming at the 2002 Kemper Insurance Open. In those events, he has made 446 cuts, and has been in the top-10, 205 times. His total earnings are $21.6 million dollars.
2017 Notes: Split playing time between the PGA Tour (15 starts) and PGA Tour Champions Tour (nine starts). Overall, enjoyed his most success on PGA Tour Champions with a pair of top-10 finishes to his credit (T-5th at the Senior PGA Championship & T-10th Shaw Charity Classic). Made just three cuts in 15 starts on the PGA Tour. Will enter the 2017-18 season on a Major Medical Extension with eight available events to earn 300 FedExCup points or $479,415 to remain exempt for the remainder of the season. Injury dates back to the 2013-14 season that limited him to just two starts that year. Finished on the PGA Tour Champions Tour 59th in earnings with $273,289.
2018 Notes: Played in 15 PGA Tour Champions events with six top-ten finishes. T-5th at the Cologuard Classic, T-8th at the Regions Tradition and T-10th at the Senior PGA Championship. Shot 65-66 on the weekend to finish T-5th at the 3M Championship. T-8th at both the Boeing Classic and the Ally Challenge. Played in the first two playoff events and finished 36th in the Charles Schwab Cup. In only 8 PGA Tour starts made one cut, T-49th Valspar Championship.
2019 Notes: Was 3rd at the Oasis Championship, six shots back of winner Bernhard Langer.
