William McGirt’s Biography

William McGirt is an American professional golfer who plays on the PGA Tour. He grew up in the small town of Fairmont in North Carolina, where he excelled at both golf and baseball in high school. McGirt went on to play golf at Wofford College and won many events on a collegiate level before he turned professional in 2004.

A love of golf goes back many generations in McGirt's family, with Flag Tree Golf Course in Fairmont being their home course. His family knew he would be a golfer, even as early as his elementary school years. And when asked by his aunt, Bev Capps, if he wanted to be a professional golfer, young McGirt, without hesitation replied, ‘Uh huh.’
