Chez Reavie has a 6-stroke lead heading into the final day of the Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell (Conn.). A week after his surprising top-3 finish at the U.S. Open, the No. 48 golfer in the world shot a 28 on the back-9 on Saturday to scream past Zack Sucher.
The 37-year old from Wichita has earned $13,651,373 on the PGA Tour since turning pro in 2008. Add in his Web.com Tour earnings, and that number bumps up to $14,326,861.
Yahoo Sports has him slightly higher at $14,366,765.
His biggest paycheck came at the 2008 RBC Canadian Open in Hamilton, Ontario. He took home $900,000 in what is still his only PGA Tour victory. His other professional victories include the 2015 Small Business Connection Championship at River Run and the 2007 Knoxville Open, which fueled his $675,488 haul on the Web.com circuit.
For 2019, he ranks No. 31 on the money list with $2,202,484.
The other ways Reavie makes his money is through endorsements and speaking engagements. The Arizona State alum has a deal with the Diamondbacks to wear their “‘A’ logo on his Quagmire Golf shirts and feature the team’s ‘D’ snake logo on his Titleist golf bag,” according to MLB.com in 2009.
He is also represented by AthleteSpeakers for public appearances. His website states that he is available for “Corporate Appearances, Speaking Engagements, Meet & Greets, Autograph Signings and Endorsements.” He earns a booking fee, which is revealed over the phone.
Per his PGA Tour profile, he states cars as one of his main interests. It’s unclear if that interest extends into a collection, like Ian Poulter. He mentioned to PGA.com as a rookie that one of his favorite parts of being on the tour is the “courtesy cars.”
The food is the best, the courtesy cars are great and the crowds are big and into every shot. That was a huge change for me. The fans are watching your every move and cheer over the smallest things. A decent approach shot. A good lag putt. A fair bunker shot. They clap for everything. When you make a really good shot, then it’s a roar. I need more of those.
These are the full range of possibilities for him at the Travelers Championship should he remain in the top-20, courtesy of Golf News Net.
