Tom Lehman has been a respected name in golf for decades. In fact, Lehman is so respected that he was asked to captain the 2006 US Ryder Cup team, one of the most prestigious opportunities in all of American golf and a testament to his remarkable career.
But perhaps the most remarkable moment of Lehman’s career came in 1996. The Tom Lehman appearance was at the 1996 British Open Championship, and he came away with his proudest golfing moment – raising the Claret Jug.
Although Lehman doesn’t have many first place finishes to his credit, during his prime he was widely recognized as one of the most consistent golfers on the Tour, regularly placing high and even, for a brief time, being ranked as the top golfer in the world.
**Tom Lehman Speaker**
Tom Lehman had a bumpy career at first. From 1983 to 1985 he played on the PGA Tour with little success and was then forced to play elsewhere for the following seasons. During this time, he played in Asia and South Africa and on the second tier Ben Hogan Tour in the US. In 1991 He topped the Ben Hogan Tour’s money list, thus regaining his PGA Tour card. Lehman then worked his way all the way to the top, being named PGA Tour Player of the Year in 1996.
With his incomparable determination and hard work, Lehman proved himself worthy of being a PGA Tour champion. The inspiring story of his career – having to work his way back into the tour only to eventually become the best – is a great motivational tool, making a Tom Lehman speaker experience an opportunity to show your audience the benefits of determination.
