Buddy Gardner

Started playing the game at age 5, everyone in his family played golf, and since he lived about 100 yards from the first tee of the Bonnie Crest C.C., it was natural for him to play the game. He played Junior golf with Bill Rogers, Mike Reid and Mac McLendon and won the Alabama State high school golf championship. In 1976 he beat Ron Streck for the Dixie Amateur championship and went to Auburn on a scholarship. Gardner first qualified for the Tour in 1977, but in his first full year (1978) on Tour, he won only $5,637, finishing 170th on the money list and lost his playing privileges. He went back to Q-school, and earned his card back. In the first four tournaments he entered in 1979 he failed to make a cut, and the doubts came back.

Jay won it on the first extra Hole... 1990 PGA Tour Summary: Tournaments entered - 32; in money - 21; top ten finishes - 1; stroke average 70.86 (ranked 58th); money $159,737 (ranked 99th); best finish, T-5th Canadian Open... 1991 PGA Tour Summary: Tournaments entered - 30; in money - 22; top ten finishes - 2; stroke average 70.77 (ranked 55th); money $201,700 (ranked 83rd); best finish, T-5th Southern Open.
