Travis Perkins Biography – Travis Perkins Wiki

Travis Perkins is a professional Caddie on the PGA Tour. He is a caddie for Sam Burns. He’s caddied for Kris Blanks, D.A. Points, Scott Piercy, Aaron Wise and Brandt Snedeker. He was on the bag when D.A. won the Houston Open in 2013.

He played college golf at Florida Southern College. Perkins, who grew up just north of Columbus, Ohio, was recruited to Florida Southern by then-new head coach Doug Gordin, a fellow native of Ohio and graduate of Ohio Wesleyan University.

Perkins arrived in Lakeland during the fall of 1995 and immediately played a significant role for the Mocs. In his freshman year, Perkins finished top-10 at the Sunshine State Conference Tournament, won the NCAA Regional with a 5-under tally, and finished inside the top-40 at nationals to help the Mocs win the school’s eighth NCAA National Championship, the first of six during Gordin’s hall of fame career.

Perkins would go on to play an integral role during the Mocs most successful run of national championships, earning three titles during his four years of eligibility. Perkins also placed inside the top 10 of the NCAA tournament as an individual both his junior and senior years, earning him All-American honors, and finished his distinguished career with a scoring average of 74.91. Not surprisingly, following graduation, Perkins decided to join the professional ranks.

Like so many great collegiate golfers, however, immediate success didn’t transpire at the next level for Perkins. Despite making the final stage of Nationwide Tour qualifying in 2002, he only received conditional status, and spent most of the next few years on the now defunct Hooters Tour, including time on smaller tours as he chased his dream of earning a spot on the PGA.

Midway through 2005, Perkins started seeing some good results after starting to work with Lakeland native Gil Foushee, and the next 3 years Perkins enjoyed a consistent rise, culminating in his greatest playing achievement – earning his PGA Tour card for the 2008 season.

During the 2008 season, Perkins made 3 cuts, including a T61 at his hometown Memorial Tournament, an emotional high for the native Ohioan, but it wasn’t enough to maintain his status.

By 2011, Perkins found himself without status on any tour but had an offer to caddy for friend and PGA Tour player, Kris Blanks. Given all the ups and downs of the last decade, along with getting married and the hopes of starting a family, Perkins took him up on it.

In July of 2011, Perkins found his way to the bag of D.A. Points, who was playing well at the time, and had already won his first PGA Tour event earlier that year at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. In March of 2013, Points and Perkins enjoyed their breakthrough together, winning at the Shell Houston Open, the inaugural victory for Perkins as a PGA Tour caddy.

Over the next several years, Perkins would have success with a number of different players on Tour. Scotty Piercy enjoyed the strongest run of his career with Perkins on the bag, before Perkins moved on to caddie for PGA Tour veteran Brandt Snedeker, and later, up and comer Aaron Wise.
