Skip Kendall, PGA TOUR

The first true success to develop from the Rebel program, Skip Kendall completed his collegiate career just prior to the arrival of Dwaine Knight. After a solid but relatively unheralded career as a collegian, he graduated in 1987 with a degree in business administration.

Kendall capped the 1992 season with a sharp performance at the PGA’s qualifying tournament, carding four straight sub-par rounds and earning his card. The following year, Kendall played in 32 events, and has spent time on both the PGA and Nationwide Tours since.

The Milwaukee, Wis., native finished in the top 125 on the PGA Tour money list in 2004 for the eighth straight season and earned over $1.2 million in 2004 (his career high), surpassing the $1 million mark in earnings for the second straight season.

His best finish in 2005 was a tie for 14th at the EDS Byron Nelson Championship and in 2006 his best was a tie for ninth at the Buick Championship. In 2007, he tied for ninth place at the Mayakoba Golf Classic at Riviera Maya-Cancun, and in 2010, his best finish was a tie for fourth at the Mayakoba.

He has finished second in four PGA Tour events during his career and third in two others. He has a total of 26 top-10 finishes, 93 top-25s and has earned over $8 million on the PGA Tour.
