Antigua Tour Staff Player Ryan Armour Wins First PGA Tour Title

My mother always told me as a young boy. She would say “Son… if you persevere it’ll pay.” Looking at Ryan Armour you could say that this saying could very well apply to him. Recently in Jackson, Mississippi at the Sanderson Farms Championship the 41 year old journeyman broke through for his first career win. Armour plays a mixed bag of TaylorMade Golf, PXG, Titleist and Scotty Cameron products. All of this while wearing Antigua Sportswear.

About Until The Next Tee

I am a soon-to-be 46 year old who has pursued golf over the past several years. I've played on Mini-Tours and in one U.S. Open Qualifier. I have worked in different aspects of the golf industry. I became interested in golf after a chance meeting of Mr. Arnold Palmer when he was in Hamilton, Ontario for the PGA Canadian Senior Open in 1996. I had no idea then that this beautiful game would consume me and develop into one of my passions.
