The All-American

December 13, 2014

Chris Kirk

There some of those who marvel at the American Dream and there are those who live it. 2014 was the year of Chris Kirk! Chris won two tournaments last season and finished 2nd in the FedEx Cup standings. A loyal University of Georgia fan, Kirk is the unassuming persistent player that you never see coming until he is in the lead. He is the All-American.

We sat down and asked Kirk a few questions:

TravisMathew: When did you turn pro?

Chris Kirk: 2007

TM: What has been your favorite moment on tour?

CK: My favorite memory on tour is definitely my win last year at the McGladrey Classic. To win at Sea Island where I lived for 6 years was amazing. Davis Love III was my favorite player as a kid and has become an incredible mentor in my years as a pro so to win his tournament was a dream come true. On top of that my wife, Tahnee, was 7 months pregnant with our second son, Foster. She and our oldest son Sawyer were waiting on the 18th hole after I won. Can't write a script any better than that.

TM: If you were to leave the house with one piece of TravisMathew what would it be?

CK: If I was leaving the house and could only take one TM piece with me it would probably be a white OG polo. That shirt is a cornerstone of the TM brand and a perfect example of classic style. It's a rare piece that can be worn to the beach, the golf course, and the bar with your buddies. Not necessarily in that order.
