BIO

CHRIS CLARK

Chris Clark grew up in Tacoma, Washington and graduated from Washington High School. Got his start in business very early on serving as the second African American to represent the state of Washington as the President of the state chapter for Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA). An organization focused on teaching and fostering business skills in high school students across the United States. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in English Rhetoric and Professional Writing from Washington State University.

Chris' golfing story is very much an organic one. After completing all of the core requirements to graduate college, he found himself choosing golf as an elective to complete his degree. Immediately entering corporate America after college, Chris began playing golf whenever he was not in the office, logging countless practice hours in the evenings at driving ranges and on the weekends. That passion turned into competing and now more than 10 years later, Chris discovered his ability to compete at the professional level.

His goal is to be a role model and an ambassador of diversity. As the game of golf continues to grow, the number of minority golfers from America on the PGA tour remains the same. He wants to show younger minority golfers that it’s never too late, and if you work hard to follow your dreams, you can do whatever you want in life.
