    Rocco Mediate

    Professional Golfer

    Rocco Mediate began his golf career at Florida Southern College, where he and his close friend, PGA Tour professional Lee Janzen, helped lead Florida Southern to the 1985 Division II national team championship. In 1985, Rocco turned professional. With his golfing career marred by back trouble, he compensated early on by using a long putter. In 1991, he became the first player to win on the PGA Tour using a long putter when he won the Doral-Ryder Open. Rocco has won six PGA Tour and four PGA Tour Champions events, earning over $23 million dollars. In 2016, Rocco won the Senior PGA Championship. He has been featured in the top 20 of the Official World Golf Rankings and considered to be one of the best putters in golf.
