Jerry Kelly

Junior Masters Participant

Kelly won the 2009 Zurich Classic of New Orleans with a two-foot par on the final hole, beating three players by one stroke (Charlie Wi, Rory Sabbatini, and Charles Howell III). For the first time in his PGA Tour career, Kelly finished outside the valued top 125 on the tour’s money list, ending the 2012 season just $1,809 out of a full Tour card. He also finished 2012 as the 25th highest earning PGA Tour golfer in history. Instead of going to Q School (where his finish would have placed him directly into the final stage), Kelly played the 2013 season using a career money list exemption, nineteen places higher on the PGA Tour priority ranking list than the 126-150 category (Priority Ranking 29).

J.P. Hayes

Junior Masters Participant

Hayes began play on the PGA Tour in 1992 after earning his tour card at qualifying school (Q school). He failed to finish high enough on the money list to retain his card and played on the Nike Tour (now Nationwide Tour) in 1993 and 1994. He again gained a PGA Tour card for the 1995 season through Q school but failed to keep it. Playing the Nike Tour again in 1996, he won the NIKE Miami Valley Open and finished 14th on the money list. He finished 13th at Q school to earn his 1997 PGA Tour card. A knee injury halted Hayes’ career in 2012. He was a ‘motivation speaker’ for the Cedarburg High School boys golf team that won the 2013 Wisconsin Division I state title, led by Jeff Van Straten, a high school teammate of Hayes. Hayes plans to return to competitive golf in 2014 to prepare for the Champions Tour.
