Chesson Hadley: A Rising Star


Chesson Hadley is an American golfer who can holds several achievements to his name, including winning the Puerto Rico Open and the award of PGA Rookie of the Year which he received in 2014. Chesson Hadley is available to be booked for appearances as an after dinner speaker at private and corporate events or for brand opportunities through London based talent agency MN2S.

Hadley was born in North Carolina in 1987 was a natural sportsman from an early age. Especially taken with golf at 6 years of age, by the age of 12, he had already broken par, and was later a three-time All-State performer while at high school and a five-year letterwinner at North Raleigh Christian Academy, as well as winning every conference match in his senior year.

Winning a scholarship to Georgia Tech, he went on to perform impressively over the course of his college years, and in 2008 represented the USA on the Palmer Cup team. Off the back of this success, he turned professional in 2010, having also achieved a degree in Business Management during his golf filled college years.



After playing on the eGolf Tour for two years, he qualified for the Web.com Tour at the 2012 PGA Tour Qualifying School. He won the tour twice in 2013, including the honour of winning his hometown event, the Rex Hospital Open, and emerging victorious at the Tour Championship. Finishing with the highest earnings, he went on to become a rookie on the PGA Tour in 2013.
His successful first season on the tour saw him take first place at the Puerto Rico Open and achieve four top ten finishes, warranting the award of 2014 PGA Tour Rookie of the year.

Hadley has already proved himself a character on the tour, becoming known for his trademark finger click routine which he brings out at moments of particular success when playing. He has become a popular figure on the circuit, identifiable by his tall lanky frame and big grin which shows beyond a doubt his genuine love of the sport.



Ever a humorous character, Hadley once pranked his tour mate, Bubba Watson as the latter was signing autographs. Given a tendency of famous sports players of any discipline to go into an vacant autopilot when presented with countless autographs to sign, Hadley slipped into the crowd pushing a magazine under Watson’s nose to sign while flashing the camera an infectious grin as Watson noticed nothing.

Hadley is a promising golfer, with strong successes and an excellent reputation among his peers already. An undeniable talent, Hadley is available to talk about his career and entertain an audience with his distinctive personality. Such a well-respected figure in the golfing world is an excellent choice as after dinner speaker or for a brand endorsement alike, and can be booked through MN2S talent agency in the UK.

The five-foot-11 200-pounder was the Phils’ 4th round draft selection in 2016. That year he helped Yavapai College, the same school that the Phillies drafted Kenny Giles from in 2011, clinch the JuCo World Series, leading the way with an 11-5 record, a 3.64 ERA and a 10.2 K/9 mark.
