Cink graduated from Georgia Tech in 1995 and has had a successful career on the PGA Tour. He has 6 Tour wins, including the 2009 British Open. He has also finished in the top 3 in each of the other three majors, giving him a very respectable career stat line.

Duval turned professional in 1993 after being a four time All American for Georgia Tech. He has 13 total PGA Tour wins, one of which was the British Open in 2001. He has two Top 2 finishes in the Masters and a Top 2 US Open finish. Along with his major success, he is also a former number one player in the world. He has struggled to stay on the Tour the last few years, but that won’t erase the history Duval made in the early 2000s.

Matt Kuchar

Kuchar is not as decorated as Cink or Duval, but he has turned into a Top 10 player on Tour. He now has 5 wins and has finished in the Top 10 in each major tournament. He has continued to play well and has the best chance out of all the former Tech golfers to win a major this year.

Both of his PGA Tour wins were at the Frys.com Open, but he has also lost two tournaments in a playoff. He has played well to start the 2013 season and will have a chance to compete in a few majors if he keeps up his impressive play.

His most notable win was the 1987 Masters, when he won a playoff against Greg Norman and Seve Ballesteros. Since he won a Masters, he is able to compete annually in the tournament.

Cameron Tringale

Tringale turned professional in 2009 out of Georgia Tech, so he doesn’t have much history on the PGA Tour. He has played some very good golf so far this year, however, consistently finishing in the Top 30 and one Top 5 finish. With the way he has played lately, he has a chance to become a very good golfer on the PGA Tour.
