The Golf Travel Group is proud to partner with professional golfer Sam Ryder. Sam embodies The Golf Travel Group’s passion for travel and is incredibly hardworking, poised, and family driven. He represents our luxury brand and our promise to deliver the ultimate golf travel experience.
The Golf Travel Group and Sam Ryder teamed up in July 2018 and it could not have been a better fit. Michael McHenry, President of The Golf Travel Group is thrilled to grow its footprint in the golf space by forming a partnership with Ryder. “We could not have found a better athlete to represent our brand and bring it to life on the PGA TOUR,” McHenry said.
Sam played collegiate golf at Stetson University in Florida where he studied Finance and was a two-time Academic All-American. Following a successful college career, he methodically worked his way through the PGA Tour’s development tours, earning his Web.com tour card in 2016. After finishing second on the 2017 Web.com tour money list, he secured his place on the PGA Tour for the 2017–2018 season.
In his rookie season, he qualified for and played in the first round of the FedEx Cup playoffs and finished the year ranked 101st, just missing out qualifying for the 2nd round playoff by one spot. His 2018–2019 season is off to a great start, where he has two top-five finishes at the time of this printing.
