Player Profile – Corey Pavin
Oxnard, Calif. native Corey Pavin attended UCLA and turned pro in 1982. He quickly established himself, with three international victories in 1983 and his first PGA TOUR victory at the 1984 Shell Houston Open.
Pavin won at least one event on either the PGA TOUR or the international tour nearly every year for the next decade, and topped the PGA TOUR’s money list in 1991, when he was the last man to achieve this without winning at least one million dollars in prize money. Pavin’s success culminated in his only major victory, the 1995 U.S. Open. Pavin won his 15th career title in 2006 at the U.S. Bank Championship in Milwaukee. He has played on three Ryder Cup teams.
Pavin’s support of Operation Homefront:
Pavin is proud to support the brave men and women of our Armed Forces and their families through his support of Operation Homefront, a non-profit organization that provides emergency assistance and morale to our troops, to the families they leave behind, and to wounded warriors when they return home. In addition to participating in fundraising events and visiting patients bedside at military hospitals, Corey spent Thanksgiving 2006 in the Persian Gulf as part of a USO/Armed Forces entertainment tour alongside fellow PGA TOUR players Frank Lickliter II, Donnie Hammond, Jerry Kelly and Howard Twitty.
