Brad Smith - Atlanta, GA
Brad was first introduced to golf at an early age by his father Mike, and began playing seriously when he was 12 years old, shortly after the 1996 Masters. The manner in which Greg Norman carried himself throughout the ordeal of that tournament’s final round, and his eventual defeat, was Brad's inspiration to pursue golf as a career.
Brad was born and raised in Adelaide, Australia but has spent the better part of the last decade outside of Australia. He first traveled overseas in 2004 to begin his collegiate career, spending his first two years at Indian Hills Community College in Iowa. Brad became the 2006 NJCAA Champion, winning the title in a playoff. Following completion of his associate’s degree, Brad transferred to the University of Alabama – Birmingham, from which he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in the Spring of 2008.
Brad’s professional golf career began in the United States in the Fall of 2008, where he competed on the eGolf (formerly Tarheel) tour and in Monday qualifying events for the Web.com (formerly Nationwide) and PGA tours. At the end of 2009, Brad returned to his native Australia, where he qualified for the Australasian and Asian tours. Brad has since competed in some of the largest events co-sanctioned between the European and Asian Tours, including the Singapore Open and Hong Kong Open. Brad’s best result came in the 2010 Worldwide Selangor Masters tournament in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, finishing in a tie for fourth.
When not playing or watching golf, Brad enjoys learning about history, working out, and watching American sports, particularly basketball and baseball.
