Beckman was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota and was raised in the Twin Cities' suburb of Burnsville. He graduated from Burnsville Senior High School in 1988. He attended Texas Lutheran University, where he majored in Art and was a member of the golf team. Beckman was the 1991 NAIA individual champion. He graduated and turned pro in 1993.[1][2]

Seven years later, at the 2008 Frys.com Open at the Greyhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona, Beckman shot a final round 63 to force a playoff against Kevin Sutherland. Beckman won the tournament with a par on the second playoff hole to get his second PGA Tour win and secure his card for the 2009 and 2010 PGA Tour seasons. He earned his third PGA Tour title at the 2010 Mayakoba Golf Classic with a two-stroke win over 54-hole leader Joe Durant and Tour rookie Brian Stuard. Beckman finished with a three-under-par 67. The event was held at the Mayakoba Resort in Playa del Carmen, Mexico.[3]
