Golf Channel Analyst, Former PGA Tour Player & Advocate for Health and Fitness in the Native-American Community

Notah Begay III, the only full-blooded Native American on the PGA Tour, was born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Notah secured a scholarship to Stanford University where he earned a degree in economics in addition to earning All-American Honors three times and leading the golf team to a National Championship in 1994.

In addition to winning four PGA Tour tournaments, Notah became only the third player in the history of professional golf to shoot 59 in a professional event and partnered with good friend Tiger Woods in the 2000 President’s Cup.

When Notah is not on the golf course, he dedicates his time to positively impacting the Native American community. In 2005, Notah launched The Notah Begay III Foundation. The Foundation works to battle obesity and diabetes in the Native American youth. In addition, Notah owns a golf course development firm and works exclusively with Native communities to develop world-class golf properties.

Notah was named one of Golf Magazine’s Innovators of the Year in 2009 and has also been named one of the Top 100 Sports Educators in the world by the Institute for International Sport.
