Talor Gooch

Father, Ron Gooch, spent five seasons in the minor league system of the Texas Rangers. At age 9, when he won a U.S. Kids Golf World Championship, Talor started thinking about life on the PGA Tour. He grew up playing all sports but when he was 12 played in the Little League World Series. Many may wonder if Talor's name is a typo, it isn't. His first name is intentionally y-less thanks to a family custom in which his mom's side of the family likes names to be without a "Y." But the tradition isn't exclusive to Talor. His mother's name is "Amber," spelled A-M-B-R-E and his sister's name is Cassidi, spelled as it sounds but with an "i" rather than a "y" at the end.
Gooch was T-13th during the stroke-play portion of the 2012 U.S. Amateur with rounds of 68 and 71, won his first match and lost his second to Andrew Presley 1 down.
