From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Corey Pavin (b. November 16, 1959, Oxnard, California, USA) is an American golfer who was a leading player on the PGA TOUR from the mid 1980s to the mid 1990s.

Pavin attended UCLA and turned professional in 1982. He quickly established himself in the sport, with three international victories in 1983, and his first PGA Tour victory at the 1984 Houston Coca-Cola Open. He won at least one event either on the PGA Tour or internationally most years for the next decade, and topped his home Tour's money list in 1991, when he was the last man to achieve this without winning a million dollars in prize money. Pavin's success culminated in his only major victory, the 1995 U.S. Open. Rather than marking a new move to a new level of achievement however, this was soon followed by a long slide down the world rankings. Pavin only won one further PGA Tour event, which took his career total to fourteen, plus two or three further events outside the U.S. His 89th place finish on the 2004 money list was the first time he had featured in the top hundred since 1998.
