One of the most successful American golfers of his era, Ben Crenshaw has two major championships, nineteen PGA Tour wins and four international titles. His inspirational and motivational skills were stunningly demonstrated in 1999 as he captained the victorious US Ryder Cup team (a team he played for four times). That same year he was given the PGA’s highest honor, the Bobby Jones Award for sportsmanship in golf.
Golf Course Designer
Although Ben still plays golf on the senior tour he has branched out into golf course architecture with his own firm, Coore & Crenshaw. Together with Bill Corre he has designed and built some of the best new courses in America, including The Sand Hills in Nebraska, The Plantation Course in Hawaii, Friars Head in New York and Bandon Trails in Oregon.
Ben has carefully traced his rise as a Texas schoolboy champion through his Masters victories, and his role in leading the Ryder Cup team at Brookline in his wonderful autobiography, A Feel For the Game: To Brookline and Back.
Ben is available for corporate golf outings or to share his inspirational stories of motivation and leadership in a more formal setting. In recent years he has been asked to speak to employees of such prestigious companies as Dell, Kraft Foods, Motorola, Credit Suisse, PricewaterhouseCoopers and Nabisco Food, amongst many others.
