Newsclip®: [Sports] Reifers a Players Championship rookie who took long road - Houston Chronicle

"Reifers was among 25 players who gathered on the lawn Wednesday outside the TPC Sawgrass clubhouse, all of them presented as 'rookies' because they are taking part in golf's richest tournament for the first time. With his pedigree (former No. 1 amateur in the world) and early success out of Wake Forest (he won the first Nationwide Tour event he played), he just never imagined having to wait nine years. Reifers, who grew up caddying at Muirfield Village, finished up his college career by winning the Monroe Invitational in 2004, the Northeast Amateur at Wannamoisett a year later and being named to the Walker Cup team in 2005 that featured an entire team that earned PGA Tour cards. After graduating from Wake in 2006, he made it through a Monday qualifier for the Chattanooga Classic on the Nationwide Tour, shot 61 on the final day and beat Brandt Snedeker in a playoff.
