Brett Quigley steps front and center into the Hall of Fame spotlight, which has not always been the case in his golf career.
As a second-generation member of Rhode Islandís premier golf family, Quigley had to deal much of his career with being Paulís son, or Danaís nephew, and with the high expectations that come for someone with his background.
He not only dealt with the expectations, he used them to help vault himself to his own Hall of Fame career by age 40.
Quigley has won more than $10 million in 13 years on the PGA Tour. He had another big year in 2009, one that included back-to-back second-place finishes.
The Barrington High grad, who was a two-time academic All-American at the University of South Carolina, won the 1984 RIGA Junior Amateur and the 1990 State Amateur. He combined with his father, Paul, to capture the Four-Ball in 1988 and 1990. He was the 1988 RIGA Player of the Year.
He is one of only two Rhode Islanders, with Ronnie Quinn, to win the Northeast Amateur (1988). Quigley also won the U.S. Junior Championship in 1987.
