Chris Riley – Golf

Chris Riley – Golf

Chris Riley is a professional American golfer and who holds the distinction of becoming the first and only four time all American in the history of any sport while he was still at the University of Nevada.

Riley represented the United States of America in the Walker Cup of 1995. He turned professional in the summer of 1996 and instead of joining the PGA Tour at once; he decided to give the Nationwide Tour a shot. He joined the PGA Tour in 1999 and made an immediate impact and also made it to the top 30 rich list in 2002 and 2003.

The one and only PGA Tour victory of Chris Rileys career came in 2002 when he won the Reno-Tahoe Open. He was also a part of the Ryder Cup team of the United States of America in 2004 in which they lost very poorly to their European opponents.

His highest ranking in the Golf List has been in 2007 when he broke into the Top 50 and that is where he has spent most of his career since then. Chris Riley is a golfer of immense potential but he has yet to live up to his potential by winning trophies.
