Spencer Joseph Levin (born June 15, 1984) is an American professional golfer who currently plays on the PGA Tour.

Early life[edit]

Levin was born in Sacramento, California, the son of Carlene (Rossi) and Don Levin.[1] His mother is a cousin of football official Mike Pereira.[2] Levin attended the University of California, Los Angeles before transferring to the University of New Mexico, where he was a two-time All-American. While at New Mexico, Levin played with future PGA Tour professionals Michael Letzig and Wil Collins. In 2004, he finished in a T-13 at the U.S. Open (and was the low amateur), earning him an invitation back for the 2005 tournament, where he missed the cut. He turned professional in 2005.

Professional career[edit]

Levin finished 22nd on the 2008 Nationwide Tour money list, earning himself exemption for the 2009 PGA Tour season. His best finish that year was a T-7 at the U.S. Bank Championship in Milwaukee. He would finish T-23 at Q-School in December to retain his card for 2010.

In 2010, his best finish was a T-3 at the Children's Miracle Network Classic in November.

In February 2011, Levin finished tied for first at the Mayakoba Golf Classic at Riviera Maya-Cancun with fellow American Johnson Wagner. However he lost on the first playoff hole, when he made bogey and Wagner made par on the par-four 18th hole.
