Rookie of the Yyear
Brett James Ogle (born 14 July 1964) is an Australian professional golfer.
Ogle was born in Paddington, New South Wales, adopted at 6 weeks of age and was brought up in the town of Goulburn. He now lives in Melbourne. He turned professional in 1985, joining the PGA Tour of Australasia that year. He played on the European Tour from 1988 to 1992, where he performed consistently, winning the AGF Open in 1990, the year he had his best finish on the Order of Merit, 24th place. He also ended the 1989 and 1992 seasons inside the top 30.
At the end of 1992, Ogle tied for medalist honors at the PGA Tour Qualifying Tournament. He won his first PGA Tour title in just his fourth event of 1993, the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. He won one other tournament on the tour, the Hawaiian Open in 1994. He was unable to maintain that form as he struggled with the yips, and lost his card at the end of the 1996 season.
Since leaving the PGA Tour, Ogle has worked as an analyst and commentator for Fox Sports. He returned to tournament golf on the Australasian Tour in 1999, but left the tour again in 2002 to focus on broadcasting work.
