Born and raised in Austin, Texas, Ben Crenshaw appearances gained a great deal of attention while he was still attending Austin High School and then the University of Texas at Austin. While playing for the Longhorns, Ben Crenshaw appearances on the golf course resulted in three consecutive wins in the NCAA Championships. After graduating from the University of Texas, he turned pro, and in 1973, he played his first game as a professional, which he also won, making him the second person in the history of the PGA tour to do so.
Ben Crenshaw reached the height of the sport by winning the prestigious Masters Tournament in 1984 and then once again in 1995. He also has played on four Ryders Cup teams and served as the captain of one team.
