Boo Weekley Biography
Thomas Brent Boo Weekley (born July 23, 1973) is an American professional golfer who plays on the PGA Tour.
Weekley was born in Milton, Florida. He turned professional in 1997 and played on mini-tours until 2002, when he qualified for the PGA Tour. He made the cut in only five of 24 events that year, and lost his tour card. From 2003 through 2006, he played on the Nationwide Tour, finishing well enough in 2006 to again qualify for the PGA Tour. His first victory came at the Verizon Heritage in April 2007.
Weekley's good form at the start of the 2007 season included two top 10 finishes before his victory, after which he reached a new career high of 55 in the Official World Golf Rankings. Later in 2007, he entered the top 50 of the rankings. He represented the United States at the 2007 Omega Mission Hills World Cup with Heath Slocum and finished in 2nd place.
In 2008, Weekley successfully defended his title at the Verizon Heritage, and rose into the top 25 of the rankings. Weekley shot to prominence at the 2008 Ryder Cup, with a succession of virtuoso displays of superb golf including an emphatic 4&2 victory over Oliver Wilson in final day Singles play. The final day was also notable however when Weekley was filmed riding his driver cowboy horse style down the first fairway.
Weekley's nickname comes from Yogi Bear's sidekick, Boo Boo Bear.
He failed out of Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College where he studied turfgrass science. After only one year at Baldwin, where he played on the golf team, Weekley returned home. He was hired as a hydroblaster at the Monsanto chemical plant in Pensacola, Fla. where he would be lowered into large ammonia tanks to clean them.
Weekley began his professional career on the Developmental Players Tour (DP Tour) in Atlanta, Ga., a tour co-founded by Jack Slocum, father of fellow PGA golfer and friend Heath Slocum. Weekley attended high school with Slocum and they played together on the golf team.
He is sponsored by the outdoors apparel company Mossy Oak, which specializes in camouflage apparel and other outdoor/hunting gear. He lists Ben Hogan as his hero.
