Luke List (born January 14, 1985) is an American professional golfer who has played on the PGA Tour. List is one of the hardest hitting golfers on the tour with one of the longest average drives, consistently hitting over 300 yards.

Amateur career

List was born in Seattle, Washington. He was the runner-up at the 2004 U.S. Amateur to Ryan Moore, finishing 2 down. With his runner-up finish he was extended an invitation to play in the 2005 Masters, in which he finished T33 and recorded an ace during the Par 3 Contest held on Wednesday. He won the Jones Cup Invitational in 2005. He went to high school at Baylor School in Chattanooga, Tennessee. He graduated from Vanderbilt University in 2007 and turned professional.

Professional career

List joined the Nationwide Tour in 2010. He recorded four top-10 finishes during his first two years on Tour. He finished 38th on the money list in 2011 and led the tour in eagles. List won his first professional event on April 29, 2012 at the South Georgia Classic on the Nationwide Tour. The following week, List had a chance to win the Stadion Classic at UGA when he held a one shot lead over Hudson Swafford heading to the final hole of the tournament. But he bogeyed the hole while Swafford birdied it, and List finished in a tie for second.

In 2012 he finished 4th on the Nationwide money list, and was promoted to the PGA Tour. In 2013, he finished 163rd and lost his status.

In 2014, he finished 119th on the Tour. However, he still retained status from his 2012 win,[1] and finished 64th in 2015, earning a place in the Tour Finals. There he finished 22nd (excluding the regular season top 25) to narrowly earn a place on the PGA Tour for 2015-16.[2]
