Casey’s Bio

About Casey Wittenberg

Casey Wittenberg was born on November 30, 1984 in Memphis, Tennessee. He played collegiate golf at Oklahoma State University, and had a very successful amateur golf career. In 2004, Wittenberg finished 13th at the Masters Tournament as an amateur. This was the lowest amateur finish at the tournament in 41 years. He registered the lowest Sunday back 9 score of any amateur in Masters history.

Wittenberg turned professional in 2004, and has played in the PGA TOUR, Tour, and mini-tours. He won his first event on a major tour at the Tour’s Chitimacha Louisiana Open in 2012. That same year, he was the leading money winner on the Tour and was named Player of the Year.

Casey is a big fan of House. He says Tokyo is the most memorable city he has visited. His favorite food is steak–medium-rare. Casey says, “I’m a red-meat Southern boy.” He splits his college football allegiances between LSU and his alma mater, Oklahoma State.

Casey’s father, Jim, was a collegiate golfer at LSU who played two seasons (1975 and 1977) on the PGA TOUR. Jim’s top finish was a T8 at the 1977 Oklahoma City Open.
