Graysen Huff was a two time AJGA winner as a junior and went on to play at Auburn University for five years. During his time at Auburn, Graysen notched two wins, including the 2019 SEC Championship. After college, Graysen turned pro and found immediate success on the Latinoamérica Tour, finishing T-5th in his first start. Since then, Graysen has competed on the Latinoamérica Tour, the Korn Ferry Tour, and the Forme Tour.
Graysen didn’t really start playing golf until the age of 14, which is surprising because it is uncommon for someone who started that late to improve so quickly that they compete and even win in AJGAs. Graysen attributes his early success to the work ethic that his dad provided. Whether it was on weekends or weekdays, his dad made sure they were up at 6:30 AM and working on whatever they needed to do.
One of the things that he has learned on the Latinoamérica Tour, is that you just have to get out there and play. It can be tough playing for status, especially while in foreign environments, but you have to play in order to have a chance to win. That idea is also something that Grayson learned from his dad, who encouraged him to play in as many tournaments as he could to get experience.
