Putnam grew up playing junior golf with Andres Gonzales in Washington and is 16 days younger than Gonzales. Brother Andrew, a PGA Tour player, earned his first Tour card for the 2015 season.
First career PGA Tour start came as an amateur in June 2005, missing the cut at the U.S. Open at Pinehurst. Playing for Pepperdine University, he finished second at the 2005 NCAA Men's Golf Championships, losing a playoff on the third extra hole to the University of Washington's James Lepp. Named a first-team All-American by the Golf Coaches Association of America. Played on the USA Walker Cup Team in 2005.

2011 Notes: His season came to an abrupt halt at the Reno-Tahoe Open when he had an MRI that revealed a fracture of a bone in his left wrist. The injury occurred in June while he was practicing. Before the injury, he matched his PGA Tour career total of top-25 finishes, with four, the best showing a T-12th at the John Deere Classic, where he posted four sub-par rounds for just the second time of the year. Qualified for the U.S. Open, then made the most of his opportunity, making the cut and eventually T-45th at Congressional CC.
