‘PGA Rookie’ Jake Nap Reverses Life With His First Win… From Nightclub Security to Champion

Nap started as the lone No. 1 player on the last day of the tournament at the Vytona Bayarta Course (par 71, 7,456 yards) in Bayarta, Mexico, on the 26th (Korea time), and shot an even-par 71 with two birdies and two bogeys in the fourth round.

Nap, who finished with a total of 19 under 265 thanks to his eight-under-par performance on Moving Day, beat second-place Sami Balimaki (Finland, 17-under-par 267), who competed for the championship, by two strokes.

Jake Nap will receive $1.458 million (about 1.94 billion won), 18% of the total prize money in the PGA Tour. In addition, he won 500 points in the FedEx Cup, expanding his chances to participate in special competitions such as major tournaments.

According to PGA Tour Dotcom, Nepp, a UCLA native, has lived an eventful life, including teaching professionals, wedding hall work, and nightclub security management.

Nap, who grew up across the street from Costa Mesa Country Club, played 58 pars by renting a head pro putter at his home course in his third year of high school. In addition, he played 61 pars at the regional qualifying round for the U.S. Open in high school, but failed to pass the final qualifying round.

He also has connections with Patrick Cantlay, one of the best players in the world. When he was a high school student, Cantlay was one of the world’s best amateur players at UCLA. Cantlay, who was recovering from his waist injury, also enjoyed playing with his nap.

Nap’s mother also organized weddings and events, and her father and Nap worked as security guards at the wedding. At the time, Nap helped almost everything besides guiding people.

After he dropped out of the Q-school in 2021, he worked as a nightclub security guard for about eight months. He practiced golf during the day, strengthened his physical stamina at the gym, and challenged himself again to mini-tourses and Canadian tours. After spending four years in Canada and three years in the Conferry Tour, which is the second wife of the PGA Tour, he debuted as a PGA Tour rookie this year.

Nap made his name known in the leadership of the Farmers Insurance Open in January this year, and drew attention by tying for third.
